The Rose Table’s Pumpkin Soup

I am incredibly proud of this pumpkin soup. It’s well-balanced in flavor, has the perfect creamy consistency that you want, and it’s just downright fun to make! It comes together in just about fifteen minutes aside from roasting a little pie pumpkin, which are readily available an easy to work with. To roast a pumpkin,…

Harvest Festival

Halloween may look a little bit different this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t all have fun at home! I had my quarantine crew, my parents, over for a backyard harvest festival-themed lunch. Here’s how I did it, recipes and all! The Food I wanted a super causal menu that would be easy to…

Autumn at the Arboretum 2020

It’s the fifteenth year of Dallas Arboretum’s beloved Autumn at the Arboretum festival, which has been named one of the best fall festivals in the country by several national publications. My avid readers know that I look forward to Autumn at the Arboretum all year and never miss it, but this year is particularly special…

Autumn Burrata Salad

Looking for the perfect fall salad? This is it! With butternut squash, pomegranate arils, and pumpkin seeds, this salad is as healthy as it is delicious. The maple vinaigrette just takes a minute to whisk together (or throw all of the ingredients in a jar and shake it) and makes a huge difference. The heat…

Adventures in Neverland at Dallas Arboretum

The other day I had the pleasure of exploring the Dallas Arboretum’s annual pumpkin village with my dear friend (and avid Rose Table reader!) Kat.

Pumpkin Oreo Pie with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have a confession, one we’ve never discussed before. I don’t really care for pie. I’ve met plenty of pies that I like but it’s not my favorite. I’ll take cake any day of the week over a slice of pie. My problem is the crust. Everyone talks about how to get a flaky crust…

Mini Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have long thought I should start a support group for those of us who liked pumpkin before the Pumpkin Spice Latte. As a lifelong pumpkin lover I find it incredibly frustrating that all pumpkin things seem to now be pumpkin spice. These are not. Like my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, these mini cheesecakes are pure…

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread with Orange Glaze

  There’s just something about pumpkin and orange and chocolate that makes me want to do cartwheels across the living room. I start craving this recipe in July! This pumpkin bread is incredibly moist. The brown sugar gives it a unique depth of flavor, the chocolate chips are a pleasant surprise when you slice into the loaf,…
