Yummy Stuffed Pumpkin Appetizer Recipe!

It’s nearly Thanksgiving! Here’s one of my fave recipes that combines two of life’s most delicious things… pumpkins and cheese.



  • 3 lb. Pumpkin - cap removed (but not tossed!), seeded and cleared of strings

  • 1/4 lb. cheese - mix gruyere, emmenthaler, cheddar (or your fave melty cheeses)

  • 1/4 lb. cubed stale/dry bread (cut into 0.5” chunks)

  • 2-4 minced garlic cloves

  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

  • salt & pepper to taste (and any seasonings or herbs you love)

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream

Simple Guacamole Recipe

Looking for a simple, delicious guacamole base that your kids will eat? You can add spice to your own batch, but this one's plain delicious and even toddlers will eat it (at least mine does).

The most basic ingredients:
2-3 Hass avocados
1 small/medium red onion
1 handful cilantro
1 clove garlic
Lime juice to taste
Salt to taste

After that, add what you like! We usually add tomatoes if they're in season. My partner loves adding spice so he usually adds jalapeño pepper and some cayenne.

Also, for best results, don't eat it immediately. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so, to let the flavors blend together.

Cornbread Recipe

I've got another fun illustration for you all!  This one is a really nice cornbread recipe I made last Thanksgiving.  I was pleased with the results and will be making it again. Next time, for added texture, I might add canned or fresh cooked corn to it for a bit more added texture and cut a bit of the liquid.

Either way process was interesting for this one.  I started back in November with a little sketch I did by the recipe itself... and finally got the time to finish it!
