Autumn recipes ... from my kitchen (and Ina's)

my fall sign from Homegoods
I promised you some recipes from my perfect day from last week, so here goes ...

recipe from my friend Merrily Lowry
Pumpkin Muffins

1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg  

Mix together. You can add raisins, nuts, cranberries and/or chocolate chips. Scoop into muffin tin. Bake for 20  minutes at 375 degrees.

Autumn Chowder - a recipe I have had for years, but I forgot who gave it to me.
Autumn Chowder

6 slices of bacon, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup water
2 1/2 cups potatoes, diced
1 cup carrots, sliced
2 teaspoons instant chicken bouillon or 2 cubes
3 cups milk
1 small package frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups shredded cheese
3 tablespoons flour (I leave the flour out for my gluten free girl.)

Fry bacon. Add onions. Brown until bacon is crisp. Stir in water, potatoes, carrots and bouillon. Simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 - 20 minutes. Stir in milk, corn and pepper. Heat til simmering. Mix cheese and flour and add to soup, stirring until melted.

I always double this recipe.

(A shout out to our dear friends, the Palms, who shared this meal with us many October nights.)

  1. It sounds like a delicious autumn at your home! I have canned pumpkin on my grocery list today. So far, the closest we've come to pumpkin is the three sitting on the table waiting to be turned into spiced pumpkin balls for Thanksgiving!!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  7. All sounds so delish! My cooking has deteriorated, thanks to slicing my thumb on a vegetable slicer (I forgot about the safety device). But I'm having Saturday night friends over anyway...cups of tomato soup with grilled ham & cheese sandwiches. Back to the basics, I guess...

  10. I have cut out most sweets and this KILLS me:) That soup sounds really good. It is cold and rainy here today. Kinda hard for me in the winter when things become gray and the sun doesn't shine as much.
    Happy you got to enjoy your girl:) any fun plans for the weekend?

  12. Oh Glenda these recipes look great. mmmmm.

    I see in another of your posts you are a Call the Midwife fan. I just love that show. As an RN with 26 years in public health, I think it is one of the best shows honoring nursing and women.
