  • Spicy Chile-Chocolate Cake

    Spicy Chile-Chocolate Cake

    This rich yet simple chocolate cake gets a little kick from a touch of smoked Spanish paprika and espelette. Espelette is a smoky chile powder from France. If you don't have any of this in your cabinet, an equal amount of cayenne pepper will work just fine. This was created by the pastry chef at E2 Emeril's Eatery in Charlotte, N.C.

  • Pumpkin Custard Pie

    Of course you can make a delectable pumpkin pie with fresh pumpkin. Where do you think the canned-pumpkin-puree people got the idea? Let’s show ’em something. Use a ripe “sugar” or “pie” pumpkin to make the fresh puree, not the big, flavorless jack-o’-lantern type. Or visit your farmer’s market and experiment with other varieties of pumpkins or other winter squash that they have to offer.

    • Yield: One 10-inch deep-dish pie, 8 to 10 servings

  • Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

    As butternut squash ripens, the inside turns deep orange and its flavor becomes sweeter and richer. Roasting large chunks, instead of whole halves, gives more tasty caramelized edges from a cranked-up oven.

  • Caramelized Cane Syrup Sweet Potatoes

    Caramelized Cane Syrup Sweet Potatoes

    These are so addictive! The Louisiana cane syrup gives the sweet potatoes a unique flavor, but if you can’t find Steen’s, you could certainly substitute a mixture of molasses and dark corn syrup.
