I’m one of those people who will tell you that I don’t like a food, before I’ve even tried it. Scrunched facial expression included. At one point, Pumpkin anything was on the top of my hit list, until I got turned out by the perfect slice of Pumpkin Chiffon Pie. I did request yet another slice, just to be sure that I really liked it. The pie had a subtle sweetness that was heighten by the right spices. It was light. It was creamy and very savory.
I recreated all of those flavors and the right consistency with my Pumpkin Mousse recipe. My research has proven that you can achieve a good dish without 100, expensive ingredients. You get the intense Pumpkin flavor with the puree and pie spice. The puree is then combined with a rich, French Vanilla Instant Pudding. Finally, the mixture is turned into a mousse by gently folding in a container of whipped topping.
I continue to learn about my ingredients and the payoff with adding something so unexpected. I’ll never keep something so simple and inexpensive to myself. It’s a must share secret. Yes y’all. You can make my Homemade Salisbury Steak and I promise that it will be so tender and flavorful that folks will be so inclined to kiss you.
French Onion and Mushroom Salisbury Steak
We’re going into fall and my tummy wants a little heavier meal. Don’t you? Well how about a big ole tender Salisbury Steak infused with French Onions and lots of savory Mushrooms? The secret to getting the meat to be super tender is a sweetened Applesauce. I learned this little trick while watching a cooking show on PBS.
I bore easy of the same foods and today I was feeling somewhat uninspired. I stood in the kitchen with all the food cabinet doors open. Just standing here, sighing and looking. You know how you start digging through stuff and discover items you haven’t used in a while? Then I asked myself, what did I get this spice for? Baking cookies or a sweet loaf or something.
Pumpkin Pie Spice and I love this flavor.
Well, I’ve had it in my coffee and I wonder what else I can use it for. It’s early and what the heck. Let me see how this would taste in my French Toast mixture. How about a glaze on my boring but lean Smoked Turkey Sausage and while I’m at it, how about some Pumpkin Pie Spice Syrup? Now I don’t have the money or the ingredients to waste, so this better be a good experiment. Right?
Well, wha la!
