My trek of sticking pumpkin in baked goods continued this weekend with these pumpkin popovers. I’ve successfully made pumpkin rolls, pumpkin garlic knots, so why not pumpkin popovers?

The batter was a little more dense and moist as a result of the pumpkin, so the popovers didn’t rise quite as much as some previous ones I’ve made before. You could definitely taste the pumpkin when you bite in and the popovers turned a pretty orange yellow.


I made these pumpkin rolls the other day using a recipe I found on King Arthur Flour and absolutely adore them. They are ever so soft and taste of pumpkin spices.  These are perfect dinner rolls and would be a great addition to Thanksgiving dinner.

Twenty Grill is a restaurant located inside the beautiful Sheraton Resort in Carlsbad.  A few weeks ago, FH and I went to go dine there.

It’s been a while since we had a “date night” type dinner, so it was fun to dress up and go out. It’s too bad the sun is setting so early now because I would have loved to see the resort in the daylight.

There is complimentary valet parking for customers dining at Twenty/20 Grill.

We came on a Sunday and sat in a comfy booth.  Sundays is “primetime Sundays” and you can get prime rib with baked potato for either $20.20 (10 oz cut), $28.20 (14 oz cut) or $42.20 (32 oz cut).
