Seeking Recipe Suggestions!

Wow, two posts in one day! This is to make up for skipping Monday and Wednesday. Actually, I'd love to get some recipe suggestions from y'all. I'd love either links to online recipes or cookbooks to buy, especially for whole food recipes and natural ingredient recipes. A few things I'm looking for:

- pumpkin pie/other pumpkin recipes that use actual pumpkin (as opposed to the canned stuff)
- a fabulous whole-wheat pizza dough recipe
- a great bagel recipe
- good egg recipes (even better if they use LOTS of eggs!)
- your favorite holiday cookie/baked good recipe
- does anyone make egg nog anymore?

Thanks, everyone!

This link is the step-by-step directions I will be using to make my pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin. They also have a really easy flaky whole wheat pie crust. Which led me to learning that there is a difference between pastry whole wheat flour and whole wheat flour. I have not made the pumpkin pie yet, but I did make the whole wheat crust for a peach pie I made this past week and it was amazing!! (I should also note that I had never had a whole wheat pie crust before) Good luck with your holiday goodies and please pass on any great recipes you might find along your quest.

I've made this before, and it's quite good. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/105883

Martha Stewart's Everyday FOOD magazine really has some great, quick recipes, and almost ALWAYS has at least one quiche dish that uses lots of eggs. I've tried several, and they're very tasty, easy to make, one pan, mix, pop it in the oven, forget about it until it's done. Just what I need when the kiddos don't want to let Mommy cook.

There are folks that still make home made egg nog, I'd like to try, but haven't gotten the nerve yet. The only other thing I was going to share with you was frittata. It's the same as the quiche basically, you can put whatever you want into it, it just doesn't have a crust and it can be make in a casserole dish. I'll think about the recipes more and see what I can come up with.

my favorite cookbook is "the best recipe" from cooks illustrated. it's awesome. and explains things really well, which is great when i want to make up my own recipe.

the best cookies ever will be in foodday (in the oregonian), i think it will be the first tuesday of december. they are chocolate mint and they amazing. (i had one in the test kitchen at work last week.)

I make a no rise pizza crust that tastes great and is simple. I use my kitchen aid to mix 2 tbsp of instant yeast with 1/2 cup warm water and 1tbsp brown sugar and 1 tbsp salt. I then start adding whole wheat flour and water mixing as I go until it is a nice consistency. (usually 6 cups of flour and 3-4 cups water. I add basil and oregano to the dough and sometimes (if I remember) a tad of olive oil. I then spread it on oiled pans, cover with ingredients and bake at 375. It sounds like alot of work but it is quick and easy once you do it once or twice and it tastes so much better than anything store bought.
Another thing that has saved me since I became a mom is the crock pot. You can put a whole chicken in with a few vegs, cover it with coconut milk and voila- dinner 8 hours later without any tending. Feel free to e-mail me about the crust if you have any questions. I get all of my ingredients from King Arthur Flour.

So, I generally try not to self-promote my blog on other people's blogs, but you asked for it! Anyway...when I started it, it was supposed to be about knitting and cooking. It's actually turned out to be about cooking, with occasional knitting content. But I post lots recipes there. Some must have cookbooks in my opinion: How to Cook Everything by Mark Bitman. Anything "Cooking Light." In fact, I LIVE by that magazine and would recommend a subscription for the health, fitness, travel, nutrition articles as well as all the great recipes (and the super-fast, ready in less than 10 minutes section is perfect for weeknight meals). My favorite pumpkin pie recipe comes from a book called simply "Pie" by Ken Haedrich. Very approachable and humble book with everything you need to know about baking pie...including the maple pumpkin pie recipe. He gives instructions for using an actual pumpkin, but I've tried it and it's not worth the effort over the canned stuff. Just get pure canned pumpkin (Ingredient should be only pumpkin, and maybe water, but nothing else) and not the pumpkin pie filling. As always, I could go on and on (and on and on) about food and cooking, so please feel free to email if you want any more suggestions.
