A San Francisco Treat Pt. 1

Erin & Al at U.S. Half Marathon | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
A week ago today I was running 13.1 miles along San Francisco Bay, over the Golden Gate Bridge and to Fisherman’s Wharf. I didn’t run as fast as I normally would, but the whole thing went by a lot faster than I remember other half marathons going because I had my friend Al at my side.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
I’ll have you know, that I’ve now posted six consecutive recipes without pumpkin, which in the middle of fall is just plain rude. I am sorry. You know, we were just getting started and I didn’t want to be too needy with the pumpkin and force it on you, but as is the case with my life, I played it too cool and here we are, well into November without a pumpkin recipe. Fall is out there wondering “is she even interested in me anymore?” Oh Fall, of course I am! I just didn’t want to scare you off and risk early winter. Hug it out?

Eating Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies are as good as a hug. Like a hug for your stomach.

But, I guess I equate any bread with happiness, so that first statement isn’t terribly profound. But still, how can you not be giddy when you those see thick, soft slices of pumpkin bread – that deep caramel color with a pop of orange. Oh! The sight makes me happy, warm and tingly all over. Instead of saying “I have butterflies in my stomach” the saying should be “I have pumpkin bread in my stomach,” because odds are good that there IS pumpkin bread in your stomach and I’ve heard some butter flies are poisonous, so they really don’t belong in your stomach anyway.

Pumpkin Pancakes

30 Sep

Pumpkin PancakesI’m a journalism major, so I didn’t have to take any math courses to earn my degree, but a positive, plus a positive equals  a super awesome positive right? Thus, pumpkin plus pancakes equals super awesome pumpkin pancakeness.

I love these pancakes because you should be able to throw them together without making a special trip to the store, unless of course you don’t stock pumpkin in your pantry. If you don’t, it means you don’t like pumpkin, which means you won’t be making these anyway (see, no math skills, but my logic game is on point). Continue reading
