Praise for Savvy Entertaining Autumn

“Wonderful book for gaining tips, ideas and recipes related to autumn ingredients and entertaining. After reading many Kindle books that miss the mark in order to attempt to cash in on a poorly thrown together bit of info or an over-done concept, this book is a breath of fresh air! Shanna Hatfield has published many books, but this author is new to me. I appreciate the friendly tone of the book, with brief intros to recipes that personalize them a bit. I also liked the addition of photos, which are often lacking in Kindle books with recipes.

Recipes are easy to follow and contain ingredients readily available at your local market. Directions are clear, and some tips and/or ‘fixes’ for the recipes (ie: “if the cake seems too moist, pop in the freezer for a few minutes…”) which are helpful.

Touching highlighted links in the book take you to the author’s blog, which has great color photos of both the recipes and more ‘how to’. Seeing photos of the ingredients, stages of the recipe, and the finished product were very helpful!

The book contains tips for entertaining, party theme ideas, setting up a fall buffet table, and more. Not just recipes, but rather a book dedicated to sharing really good ideas for autumn entertaining.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for some good fall recipes which include main dishes, sides, desserts, and snacks, with a large dose of inspired tips for fall.”

Pumpkin Possibilities

When pumpkin time rolls around each fall, my taste buds shift ever so slightly from their 24/7 obsession with chocolate to throw pumpkin into the mix. Crazy, yes. But absolutely true!


So if you are a pumpkin maniac as well, here are a few ideas to add pumpkins to your menu.


• Make a simple pumpkin soup by adding about four cups of chicken broth to a 28-ounce can of pumpkin. Cook until bubbling and let simmer then stir in about 3 ounces of Feta cheese, season with salt and a pinch of nutmeg.


• Use canned pumpkin as a thickener. Add it to any type of chili or stew that needs a little thickening.


• Substitute canned pumpkin for half the fat in quick breads. This works well with cinnamon, citrus and chocolate. Or make your taste buds extra happy and make a loaf of pumpkin bread.


• Add canned pumpkin to half your cheesecake filling. Swirl it into the filling, but don’t mix, before baking to get an awesome design and incredible flavor.


• Mix canned pumpkin into softened ice cream then refreeze for a quick pumpkin dessert. Serve with gingersnaps and a drizzle of caramel sauce.


• Mix a heaping spoonful into grits, top with grated Parmesan cheese and a tiny dollop of butter.


• Mix canned pumpkin with one part apple cider and two parts ginger ale for a fun beverage.


• You could also make pumpkin polenta, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin muffins, roasted pumpkin wedges, pumpkin roll or pumpkin seeds.
