A Farewell to Fellow WordPress.com Bloggers…

After one year of blogging, I’m leaving WordPress.com… I’ll still post weekly recipes to The Scrumptious Pumpkin – just as always – but my blog will now be hosted by another company (this will allow me to (with any luck!) (fingers crossed!) try to create a better and more custom…

Healthy Marinara-Smothered Meatball Sliders

I was first introduced to the idea of a “Meatball Mini Burger” when reading over a restaurant menu. I instantly saw one name written all over it: Meat-and-Potatoes-Guy. This dish is part burger and part oversized, marinara-smothered meatball. It’s mini, so you can help yourself to two or three (or…

Shine Smoothie (Avocado Smoothie for Soft, Smooth, Young Looking Skin)

The Avocado Smoothie. If my Hollywood gossip mags are correct (and I know they always are), these healthy smoothies have been popular with the rich, famous, and beautiful for years now. So I guess I’m a little late to the picnic, but here’s my discovery for all non-celebs who may…

One-Dish Dijon-Herb Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables

Plus, preparing a complete meal in one pot means it’s simple whip together, with quick and easy clean-up (hardly any dishes to wash!) What I love…

“Cinnamon Bun” Apple Tartlets

Good news and bad. Bad News: I completely failed in my mission to create a Healthy Cinnamon Bun that still tasted like an actual cinnamon bun. The problem is that an actual cinnamon bun really seems to be nothing without tons of butter and lots and lots of sugar. Let’s…

Skinny Broccoli Cheddar Soup

I have an interesting discovery to share today: Healthy broccoli cheddar soup still tastes as rich and comforting as the classic version. For this recipe, I took out all the flour, butter, and cream and thickened the soup with a cauliflower and onion purée. I loved it (no surprise), but (to my…
