Hot'N'Spicy Pumpkin Margarita

Ingredients
Jalapeno-Pumpkin Simple Syrup
  • 1-1/2 C water
  • 1-1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 t ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 t ground cloves
  • 1/4 t ground ginger
  • 3 T pumpkin puree (how to make homemade pumpkin puree)

Cocktail
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur (I use Cointreau)
  • 2 ounces of Jalapeno-Pumpkin Simple Syrup
  • 1/2 lime
  • Also needed: cocktail shaker, ice



Procedure
Jalapeno-Pumpkin Simple Syrup
Add water and sugar to a sauce pan and heat slowly. Swirl the pan until the sugar is completely dissolved. Lower the heat and whisk in the pumpkin puree. Add the jalapeno slices and spices. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let the flavors infuse while it cools. Strain out the peppers and spices. Set aside.

Cocktail
Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the simple syrup, tequila, and orange liqueur. Squeeze in the lime juice. Cover and shake for at least 30 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled glass. Enjoy!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
