Pumpkin Spice Scones

Why is it that no recipe seems to call for a whole can of pumpkin purée? The big question when making anything with pumpkin in it is: "so what else do I make to use up this stuff?" How 'bout a slightly sweet, mildly spiced scone with cinnamon chips? Add a cup of hot coffee and you've got breakfast.

Ravioli Florentine

Sauteeing spinach with onion and garlic is one of my favorite ways to prepare that particular leafy green. Add that mixture to creamy ricotta and you've got a great filling for a ravioli (or tortellini). Now that I think about it, probably great for lasagna, too

Salsa Verde

Based on Rick Bayless' Frontera recipe. I found that no additional water was necessary and would have...well, watered-down the salsa. Bayless' recipe also mentioned an optional addition of a jalepeño; I didn't have one on hand, and I didn't find the salsa suffered from its omission, so I just left it out completely.

Simple Ham Spread

Whether on Ritz crackers or a buttered toasted English muffin, the salty-smokey goodness of ham spread has been a favorite of mine since childhood.
