Best Pumpkin Pie

Like many of our American readers, I've had my share of tasting so many recipes and varieties of pumpkin pie. In the Philippines, we have a lot of squashes and they are a staple in my country but we don't really grow pumpkins. Perhaps it's the weather, I don't know. So, when I had my first Thanksgiving in Michigan back in 2004 - I was truly fascinated with the concept of using pumpkin (which  back then I just thought of as a regular squash) in a dessert, especially a pie. I thought it was rather strange as we only use squashes for savory dishes and never for dessert. Squashes are considered vegetables and, as such, they are never used for anything sweet. Little did I know that both pumpkin and squashes (at least some!) are actually the perfect ingredients for desserts, too! So glad I finally know.

Baked Chicken with Olives and Zucchini

Yay for Fall! That means the weather is cooler and we can finally turn our ovens on to bake and cook delicious meals for our family. When I make a savory dish for my family, I try to use simple recipes that I can easily prepare and do not require too much fuss. After all, when school season begins, there are tons of activities to attend to and oftentimes, there isn't a lot of time to make dinner.

Classic Belgian Waffles

Hubby and I plus our whole family truly fell-in-love with the fantastic waffles we tasted in Belgium when we visited there in the summer of 2013. They were so good that to this day, more than a year later - I can still remember how yummy they tasted and how our noses were tempted and awakened by their sweet aroma. We thought, we better remember these delicious treats as we may not be able to find something similar when we go back to the US. So, we truly indulged while we were there and savored these fantastic Belgian delicacy.

20 Fabulous Fall Desserts

Fall is just around the corner. Here in Connecticut, though the weather is still quite warm, we have already seen some trees start to change colors and some leaves already on the ground - a preview of what's to come. As everyone knows, New England has some of the best Fall foliage. I haven't been here on an actual Autumn day or season but I have seen photos and movies which feature such gorgeous and vibrant colors. I am truly so excited to see and feel the change of season here. New Haven, also known as Elm City, because it's surrounded by so many large Elm trees, am sure would be so pretty during the Fall. I really can't wait to go up to East Rock Park and see the lovely colors atop this wonderful mountainous ridge.
