Mom made some tortière! Every Christmas my mom makes several tourtière– meat pies made with a blend of beef and pork. It’s a French Canadian tradition to eat this on Christmas Eve, but we eat it frequently in December.

Pumpkin Butter

Molasses bread and pumpkin butter | Easy Recipes from scratch

Spice-infused creamy pumpkin butter sweetened with a little bit of brown sugar and fruit juice is like pumpkin pie without the calorie-laden crust.

This has been my obsession for the past two weeks. I put pumpkin butter on everything! Spread it on oven-fresh bread, use it as a carrot dip, or spread some on a cozy bowl of oatmeal in the morning.

I even put it in my smoothies for a bit of a fall twist. I made a Molasses Bread to go with this. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow.

Easy Ketchup from Scratch with BBQ Potato Springs

Homemade Ketchup and Potato Springs

Homemade ketchup tastes so much better than its commercial counterpart. Here is a simple recipe that only takes about 15 minutes of active cooking time and a few hours passive. I haven’t tried it as a barbecue sauce yet, but I think it would make a good one!

Potato Springs

We made some potato springs to go with it. To make these by hand, pierce a potato with a metal skewer (you can easily find these at the dollar store). Take a knife and, starting at one end, cut a continuous spiral around the potato.
