Pumpkin Zeppole with Ricotta Cheese

They may not be spooky for Halloween but they are great treats
It may sound strange, but the only way to mess up this pumpkin zeppole, is by using a fresh pumpkin. Like virtually every other pumpkin dessert, I think using pure canned pumpkin will give you the best results. That really is the trick to this Halloween treat.
If you take a pumpkin, roast it, and scoop out the flesh, it may look similar to the canned stuff, but you’ll be surprised at how little sweetness and flavor it actually has. It sounds like a great way to go, but in reality, it is not. And what about “Sugar pumpkins;” that smaller variety of pumpkin specially grown for cooking? They are definitely better, but still, it’s been my experience that even those don’t have as concentrated a flavor.
Absolutely delicious!!
Yummy!
Cooling off.......
Mixed all together and ready to deep fry. .
Now add the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
In an other bowl mix all the dry ingredients together...
In a bowl add all the wet ingredients and mix well...
Absolutely Delicious!

Stout, Rye and Pumpkin Sourdough

This stout, rye, and pumpkin sourdough is pretty wonderful.
Have you ever wondered what to do with leftover pumpkin puree? Me too. You can only drink so many of these.
I hate throwing away food. I had some pumpkin puree in the freezer from making these rolls, so I made this bread! This is perfect for this dilemma because it only calls for a small amount of the pumpkin puree.

                  Absolutely Amazing Delicious!
Beautiful! 
You do not taste the pumpkin at all, yet it softens and mellows the dough. Add a bottle of beer to the dough, and you have this glorious loaf.
  This is perfect for this dilemma because it only calls for a small amount of the pumpkin puree.

This bread takes a couple of days to make, but it is well worth it.

Don't be afraid of the dark crust. The caramelization adds an incredible flavor and crunchiness to this loaf of bread.
Absolutely Delicious!
