Gluten-free Pumpkin Waffles!

Pumpkin Waffle 2

So you may know from prior posts that I find cooking waffles incredibly intimidating.  Really.  I love them, but so often when I make them I am met with major heartbreak and disappointment.  And it seems so random.  One time I make them and they will be beautiful. The next, using the same recipe, they will stick and stick horribly. I can’t tell you how many of my waffle-making forays have ended in tears (and I rarely ever cry!). So I will often go months in between making waffles because of the sheer dread of them not working.

Pumpkin Self-Saucing Pudding

Pumpkin Self-Saucing Pudding

When I was growing up self-saucing puddings were a real treat for dessert, especially on cool winter nights. I mean, what could be better than hot cake with a built-in sauce? Not much, I tell you. Self-saucing puddings really are a little piece of heaven!

For some reason, until I decided to make this gorgeous pumpkin pudding, I hadn’t had one in two decades.

Millet and Kabocha Porridge

I’m beginning my third week of a long, long trip and this week it’s Bangkok. It’s nice, steamy and hot, hot, hot here. And while I’m here for work, with pleasure on the sidelines, I’m making sure that vegan food-seeking is a big part of those extra-curricula activities.  I’ve already visited a few of my old favorites, like Erawan Tea Room and Rasayana Retreat, where I met up with Caryl and Paul, the vegan power couple behind veganfoodquest.com. And I’ve visited a couple more new to me places that I’ll be blogging about soon.

Kabocha Squash, Vegan Ricotta and Tempeh Galette

As I write this, I’m sitting in a hotel room in Berlin, having just spent an awesome few days in Madrid. Madrid’s vegan scene has grown a ton since I was there last (and when I think Loving Hut was the only vegan restaurant in town).  And Berlin’s list of vegan restaurants is as long as my arm! I’ve decided that for the five days I’m here there’s no reason for me to eat in any restaurant that’s not entirely vegan. I’m armed with my city pass and will be trying to visit as many of them as I can.  I’m also excited to visit Veganz, an entirely vegan German supermarket chain. Stay tuned for some restaurant reviews and product discoveries!

Pumpkin Hummus

Pumpkin Hummus

A very quick post today from the airport as I head back to Bangkok.

There have been a million pumpkin hummus recipes floating around the internets in celebration of all things pumpkin and fall lately.  Here’s my version. This one is nice and light, with no added oil.  And it makes a ton (4 cups worth!).  If you’ve got some pumpkin purée left over or even if you don’t, it’s worth a try!
