Autumn kitchen challenge

This autumn I am setting myself a little challenge in the kitchen, I am ashamed to say it but I have never cooked anything with the pumpkins I have brought for carving over the years, nor have I have cooked a squash. - Shocking I know!
My challenge this month is to make
  • 1.       Pumpkin Soup and Squash soup
  • 2.       Meat based soup
  • 3.       Pumpkin pie/desert
  • 4.       A hearty stew
  • 5.       Winter pot pie
  • 6.       Warm drinks
  • 7.       Halloween themed dish
  • 8.       Apple crumble
  • 9.       Roast with all the trimmings
  • 10.   A simmer scent pot to fill my house with autumn aroma


       My mouth is now literally watering as I type, if anyone has some recipes they want to share please do. To help inspire me I have started a Pinterestboard dedicated to autumn/ winter recipes, I have found so many things I want to try out already.



To ease myself in I have started off with a warm drink, and a bit of a naughty one at that. I invented this concoction last night while making my children’s pack lunch hence the Nutella.

2 heaped teaspoons of orange options hot chocolate

Boiling water (I am also going to try it with hot coconut milk next time)

A heaped huge spoon of Nutella stirred in.  – You can never have enough chocolate right!

Handful of mini marshmallows

whipped cream


I made these for my children last night after dinner and they want down a storm while they snuggled up and watched adventure time, and I made myself another today.



The weather is absolute glorious today and Betty is very eager to get out for a walk which gives me a chance to burn off those sinful calories and make room for apple crumble later nom nom
