Vegetarian Yam Pie Recipe

12.09.14 by Jackie

I was inspired by the holiday season to make this savory pie. I made my own yam-flavored pie crust and filled it with French green lentils, red onions, crème fraîche and yams and topped it with smoked Cheddar cheese.

To ensure the yams were fully cooked, I twice-baked them. This all-the-way yam pie could be a great highlight to your holiday table.

Thanksgiving Appetizers: Butternut Squash Tartlet Recipe Recipe

Thanksgiving festivities are right around the corner, so it's time to play with fall flavors. Today, I wanted to prepare a savory tart using butternut squash and finally decided to prepare individual portions because they would look even cuter and be easier to eat.

I made a regular butter crust, but I flavored it with green onions and sweet basil. I filled the mini tarts with creamed butternut squash. Then I balanced the texture with a lacy cheese topping by pan-frying slices of sharp Cheddar cheese. It was literally easy as pie.

Delicious Drinks to Enjoy This Fall Recipe

Several times a week, I take little Aria to "Toddler Story Time" classes, which she enjoys tremendously. The theme these days is about the fall season. Miss Rose, the teacher, explained that leaves begin to change color and Aria seemed mesmerized by all the changes this season suggests.

When we went home, she made a drawing with trees and leaves. While she was busy, I made a pumpkin smoothie for a tasty seasonal treat. Then I told her we'd start cooking more fall-flavored dishes to satisfy her daddy's seasonal holiday cravings. For now, I'm sharing with you delicious drinks to enjoy this pre-holiday time.

My 15 Best Pumpkin Recipes

10.07.14 by Jackie

I haven't never taken baby Aria to a pumpkin patch yet. I'm planning on taking her soon. I'm sure she will enjoy the scent of fresh straw and the endless plot of pumpkins. I wonder what type of pumpkin she will select. We'll probably pick many so we can turn them into delicious fresh pies, pancakes and sweet bread for the upcoming holidays. In the meantime, I've gathered a list of savory dishes flavored with the deep-orange squash plant. I hope you will find plenty of inspiration in this post. 


I hope Aria has a lot of fun. I heard our local pumpkin patch has an inflatable bounce house and slide; that alone will probably amaze her. Even though the weather seems very warm these days in the Bay Area, summer is gone and fall is definitely in the air.
