Stuffed Pumpkin

I suspect this blog really will have mostly baking on it even though it doesn't seem this way right now.  Well technically, the pumpkins are baked, but they are definitely not cake and cookies, if you know what I mean.  My farmers' market selling is done until May, and I guess I am in the mood to cook other things.

I won't post the recipe here because I got it here:   http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130704456 , and I sure you can follow the link. It is a Dorie Greenspan recipe from NPR.

I bought these two little pie pumpkins at the farmers' market, and had stuffed some last year and wanted to do it again.  I couldn't find the recipe I used last year, so I found this one.  I pretty much followed the recipe leaving out the chives, but throwing in a handful of kale.  Really they were delicious.  We all ate way too much.  You should try it.

Roasted Black Radishes

Yes, I know, they don't look black, but they were before I peeled them.  Well, and the sweet potatoes and apples never were.  This past Saturday at the market where I sell my baked goods, one of my of my favorite vendors had Spanish black radishes.  Since I had never tried black radishes and because I am one of those people who always has to try the most unusual food available, I had to have some.  I came home and started looking up recipes. Nothing seemed quite like what I wanted to try, but several websites compared them to turnips when cooked, so I decided on a variation of my usual roasted vegetable recipe.  Now, before you go out and hunt down black radishes, let me point out that they are a strong bitter vegetable similar to turnips or rutabagas.  I happen to enjoy that taste, but you may not.  The sweet potatoes and apples are a nice sweet-tart foil for the bitter, and the brown butter sage sauce is decadent.  In fact, you could use the sauce on many different roasted vegetables.  I particularly like it on butternut squash, which would be a nice addition to this recipe, but I didn't have any on hand, so I didn't include it.
