Tackle it Tuesday



Oh, I love the flavors of fall. Why is it that this time of year brings out such a strong craving for pumpkin? Pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie cake... I want it all.

So I saw this recipe on Martha Stewart awhile back, I knew I couldn't pass it up. Pumpkin and chocolate... could there be a better combo?

My interest was further peaked when MotherLoad's Notebook Experiment mentioned it after finding the recipe at Smitten Kitten. She includes a great tutorial with lots of photos.

So I broke down and make it, convincing my husband to try it with me as well. Here's what we came up with:





Ok, so food photographer, I'm not. But it was yummy. My husband wasn't fully convinced. He was expecting them too be gooey-er like brownies, while the consistency was similar to cake. But he did like it and the kids did too. Big Boy even ate it, despite the orange color. I think I'm adding a new fall flavor to our holiday tradition.
