My newest cookbook, Pumpkin It Up!, has just been released by Gibbs Smith. I had so much fun developing and testing recipes that highlight the mild, earthy, slightly sweet flavor of pumpkin, and the result is a 128 page, four-color book that retails for $16.99. This month I’m giving away a free signed copy to one lucky, pumpkin-loving reader.
Pumpkin It Up! has 75 recipes that feature pumpkin in both sweet and savory ways.
It begins with a section about preparing pumpkins for cooking, with basic recipes for homemade pumpkin puree and roasted pumpkin seeds.
It has recipes for breakfast treats like Pumpkin Cheesecake Crescents:
…and soups like Pumpkin, Corn and Shrimp Bisque:
It features pumpkin in side dishes like Maple-Roasted Pumpkin and Brussels Sprouts:
…and dinners like soul-soothing Pumpkin Risotto:
Pumpkin stars in desserts like Creamy Pumpkin Tiramisu:
…and an old-fashioned Pumpkin Roll:
…in sweets like Pumpkin Cream Chocolate Cups:
and in treats like these pretty Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Brownies:
You’ll even find a recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte in this book. #PSL!
