Pumpkin Pie Bars

Pumpkin Pie Bars

Delicious pumpkin bars that are not as cakey as blondies and not as dense and fudgy as brownies. They taste just like pumpkin pie, minus the crust. Hope that these help to hold you over until Thanksgiving dinner!

Pumpkin Pots de Creme

Pumpkin Pots de Creme

The 'make my own pumpkin puree' madness hit me last year when I made my first pumpkin pie. I’ve had Pumpkin Pots de Creme on my mind ever since I made Chocolate Cherry Pots de Creme in September, and I thought it would be a wonderful way to use pumpkin puree - and was it ever!

One of Patty's signature recipes, resulting from much experimentation and refinement, these gluten-free brownies are a delicious tribute to one of Mexico's staple ingredients, frijoles negros.

Olive Oil Walnut Brownies

Olive Oil Walnut Brownies

About these brownies in the Chefs words, "This is an old fashioned brownie. Because of the air whipped into the first stage of this recipe, it comes out crunchy and chewy. To make these brownies even more decadent, add half a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I can't eat a brownie without a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream, and you shouldn't either."
