5 Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

There was a little crispness in the air yesterday, so I think fall is here.  One of my favorite fall flavors–even more so than apple–is pumpkin.

5 Apple Recipes for Fall

I love the change of seasons. There’s something wonderful about each season. It still feels like summer here in New York, although it has gotten cooler. But my mind is turning toward the comforts of fall, that crispness of air and apple.

Cool Food Blog

Aeri’s Kitchen is a very cool food blog of Korean recipes and culture by a South Korean-born woman who now lives in the U.S.  Not only does her blog contain Korean and American recipes, it also has Korean language lessons and step-by-step recipe photos and YouTube videos.  Since I’ve recently discovered the delights of Koreatown in Manhattan, I’ve been interested in learning more about Korean food.  I’ve heard about shaved ice but have never had it.  I’ve seen it in the shops in Koreatown.  A yummy-looking summer dessert is PotBingSu or red bean crushed ice made with condensed milk, fruit, corn flakes and sticky rice cakes.  Looks like a sweet and refreshing treat!  This colorful steamed bread recipe sounds good too.  The recipe for the Korean street-food egg bbang, or egg muffins, looks yummy.  Her savory beef, pork and seafood dishes sound delish too.  These crabstick cakes sound like a nice summer snack or appetizer.

Cool Food Blog

Outside Oslo is a very cool food blog by an American of Norwegian heritage, Daytona Strong.  The blog features traditional recipes like her great-grandma’s waffles, recipes for holidays like this cake for Norwegian Constitution Day (Syttende Mai, or May 7) or seasonal recipes like rhubarb soup for spring, as well as anecdotes and stories.  I’d like to try this Scandinavian Potato, Egg, and Dill Salad for a summer barbecue.

Cool Food Blog

Seashells & Sunflowers is a very cool food blog of Argentine recipes written by an American living in Argentina.  Since Pope Francis is Argentinian, I’ve wanted to know more about Argentina, as I’m sure a lot of people have.  And that includes the food.  Last year, I learned about empanadas, and a few years before that, alfajores, of which there are recipes on the site.  Any place with stuffed provolone cheese has to be good.  With 60% of the population of Argentina having some Italian ancestry, Argentine food reflects an Italian influence.  A recipe I’ve seen associated with Argentina is faina, a flatbread made from chickpea flour.  Italian influence can be seen in this Tarta Pascualina or Easter pie.  If you’re looking for more Easter recipes, try this rosca de Pascua, or Easter bread ring.

Cool Food Blog

Catholic Cuisine is a very cool food blog with recipes that celebrate the feasts and seasons of the liturgical year, including recipes for many saints’ feast days.  With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, the site has traditional St. Patrick’s Day recipes like soda bread and potato pancakes as well as creative dishes like an Irish flag veggie tray or candied shamrocks.  The site also has many meatless and fish dishes for Lent.  There are recipes for St. Joseph’s Day, coming up on March 19.  And egg bread and lamb cake for Easter.  The site also has a lot of recipes to make with kids.
