Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

Hot Pumpkin "Cereal"

1/2 C ricotta cheese
1 egg
1/4 C pumpkin puree'
Pinch salt
Sweetener and flavorings to taste
2 T flax seed meal (optional)

Preparation: This cooks on the stove. It goes fastest in a non-stick skillet.

Mix up the ricotta with water to thin it out - quite thin if you want to add flax seed meal, which thickens it a lot.

Add an egg and beat well (use a whisk) - you don't want a lot of strings of egg white.

Add the pumpkin and salt. Sweeten to taste and add cinnamon and nutmeg or whatever.

Stir while heating on medium heat. When it goes "grainy", that's the egg cooking. Stir in the flax seed meal at this point.

Possible additions: peanut butter, butter, nuts, you name it.

I know this sounds a little weird, but I was pleasantly suprised. It reminded me of pumpkin pie. I added cinnamon and nutmeg and two packets of Splenda to sweeten. Delish!
