Sifted: Thanksgiving Planning + Decked Out Blueberry Muffins


Snickerdoodle Cookie Topped Blueberry Doughnut Muffins by Top With Cinnamon
5 Hot Links We’re Loving:

  1. Have you heard of snickerdoodle cookies topped blueberry doughnut muffins? Neither had we, but we sure can’t wait to try Top With Cinnamon‘s creation.
  2. For your vegetarian Thanksgiving guests, Oh My Veggie’s quinoa stuffed acorn squash rings are a recipe for success.
  3. Bourbon makes a lot a lot of things better, including pumpkin pie. A Cozy Kitchen not only has a great recipe, but she has an awesome braiding technique to make the dessert look as beautiful as it tastes.
  4. Perhaps breakfast is the least of worries on Thanksgiving Day. But for the day after, we suggest Mother Thyme’s pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
  5. For those weary of brining this Thanksgiving, Stick A Fork In It suggests salting your turkey with a dry brine rub instead.

Fall Fest: Kabocha Squash Pasta

Pasta With Winter Squash

We’re continuing our season long Fall Fest 2011, which welcomes food and garden bloggers to feature garden-to-table recipes and tips. We’ll help you to enjoy all that this season has to offer. First up was the classic fall favorite, apples, then potatoes, pumpkin, and now: winter squash.

I’ve never met a squash I didn’t like but I think I might be in love with a certain winter variety: kabocha squash. It’s sweeter than butternut squash (if that’s possible) and it doesn’t have a stringy texture that some squash varieties are prone to. So when I found Mark Bittman‘s super-simple Pasta with Winter Squash recipe, I knew the kabocha variety would be the perfect choice.

At long last, it’s squash and pumpkin season. There’s so much to love about winter squashes in their many forms — butternut, acorn, buttercup, spaghetti, delicata, hubbard, kabocha, sweet dumping, Cinderella pumpkins, sugar pie pumpkins. Yes, they all look lovely in a basket on your porch, or carved up with scary faces and all of that, but they deserve better — you deserve better —  here are some great ways to take advantage of these beautiful-to-gaze-at but even better-to-eat vegetables.

Canning: Pickles, Relish and Jam

The Finished Product Cucumber Jam, Pickled Squash and Hot Pickle Relish

I’ve always been intrigued, if a bit intimidated, by the canning process. My parents stopped canning when I was about waist-high, so while I dreamed of having a root-cellar (yes, I live in an apartment, but, hey, it’s my dream) full of canned goods, I’d never actually canned anything.

So when my friend (and canning aficionado) Margaret came home from a vacation to a two-wheelbarrow crop of cucumber and squash, I was thrilled to help her put it all up (and get half the results).
