Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween and blessed Samhain to all (whichever you celebrate)

I did writing and baking all day, more like writing bits and pieces of my new chapter while baking gluten free pumpkin spice muffins and pumpkin pie. All of them turned out awesome.

I used the flesh of a real pumpkin (the jack-o-lantern pumpkin) instead of canned pumpkin loaded with chemicals and high fructose can syrup. They don’t have it in Finland anyway and the real thing tastes waaaaaay better. Besides the whole Halloween spirit is about carving the pumpkin and making stuff with its flesh. Where’s the fun and joy when you buy it canned and processed from the store?

Anyways here are the recipes if anyone would like to try them out -they turned out splendid!

Old fashioned pumpkin pie (I made the pie crust myself using buckwheat flour, used the repice for the filling only)

This is supposed to be a bookish blog, not a food blog so I will make my Halloween reading recommendations.
