One pumpkin recipe I knew I had to make this year are these pumpkin garlic knots. I love the softness and sweetness the pumpkin brings to these bread rolls.

I made a version last year that I enjoyed, but I wanted to try another recipe out this year. I liked these also. The knots came out soft and fluffy and a little bit sweet. You can taste the pumpkin flavor though it is subtle. The outside is coated with garlic and oil, adding a little savoriness to the rolls.


Update: This giveaway is now closed. chose comments #1 and #9. Congrats to Ada and Regina!

Are you one of the lucky people to have Friday off? Or are you like me and stuck at work? Well to help ease the day for those of us miserable at work, I thought I’d start Friday off with a giveaway!

With the holidays approaching, I have a few giveaways lined up. So stayed tuned for more. Today, I’m giving away two copies of the book “My Two-Year-Old Eats Octopus: Raising Children Who Love to Eat Everything”

Soft Pretzels

I adore soft pretzels. And ever since finding out how easy they are to make at home, I make them quite often. I’ve pretty much stopped buying them at malls, ballparks, fairs, etc.

Not only does the dough take only about five minutes to come together, but  you can freeze the dough too so you can have fresh soft pretzels whenever you want.
