Pumpkin Roll Cake with Bourbon Caramel Sauce


A couple thoughts: 1. I used to get SO irritated with my mom because she had a “No Christmas Music until December 10th” rule. DECEMBER TENTH.  Now I totally get it.  Mike put on Christmas music the other night and I was SO not ready for it. 2. Of […]

Pumpkin Coffee Cake

I really, really appreciate weekends, and this last one was the best one we’ve had in a while. Dinner with good friends on Friday, a beautiful run in Alameda on Saturday… followed by beer on a patio in Hayes Valley with my favorite college roommate. A new half marathon […]

Pumpkin Pie Bars


I hate pumpkin pie. It’s not the flavor I have problems with, it’s the texture. Custards just completely gross me out. Fortunately these bars taste like pumpkin pie, but have more of a cheesecake texture, which I love! I also like graham cracker crust about a hundred times more […]

Pumpkin Cake with Brown Butter Frosting


Yeah, another cake. I will eventually post healthy recipes again one of these days, but I’ve been making a lot of repeats lately, or just giant salads that definitely aren’t worthy of a blog post. So you get cake again! Ellie got to meet her great-grandparents this weekend. They […]

Vegan Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

There are a few phrases that have quickly become the most beautiful music to my ears: “I’ll take the baby, you can nap” (which was followed by a blissful, uninterrupted 90-minute nap) and “I’ll take the baby, go for a run” (which was followed by a delightful 50-minute run) […]

Pumpkin-Oatmeal-Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Cookies are probably the last thing anyone needs the day after Thanksgiving, but I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to pumpkin, and with no pie left, I have to have something for dessert after my leftovers! Thanksgiving started with a very hilly, very COLD (okay yes I’m lame […]

Vegan Pumpkin Bread

I think this is at least my tenth loaf of this bread since October 1st. I just can’t help myself! It has that perfect pumpkin spice flavor and tastes rich and decadent without sitting heavily in your stomach. I think I will continue making it at least once a […]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Thanks to Veterans Day, I did not have to be at school today. I decided it would be a great opportunity to try my hand at being a housewife! First I packed a nutritions lunch for my hard-working husband. Then I went to Target and bought some new boots […]

Pumpkin Pancakes for One

I realize there’s a lot of controversy surrounding Christopher Columbus. Should we celebrate the fact that he missed his goal by so much? Was he basically a racist piece of crap that got the ball rolling on the slave trade? Maybe…but I’m glad we have a holiday in his […]
