This Applejack Rabbit Cocktail is a delicious combination of apple brandy, lemon juice, orange juice, and maple syrup, and garnished with a fresh apple slice. It's both sweet and tart, just like your favorite apple.

Pumpkin Pudding with Sour Cream Vanilla Topping | #PumpkinWeek

These Pumpkin Puddings with Sour Cream Vanilla Topping are like little individual crustless pumpkin pies. These puddings are baked in little individual custard cups or ramekins, and then topped with the sweetened sour cream topping and baked for five minutes more.

Pumpkin Pudding

These pumpkin puddings are creamy and silky. To get a thicker and even creamier pudding, you cook the pumpkin puree with the sugar and spices until some of the water in the pumpkin has evaporated. This concentrates the pumpkin flavor.

These Greek-style Lamb Burgers take the traditional American burger to a different level. The lamb is seasoned with onions, garlic, mint, and parsley, and then cooked on a hot grill or grill pan.

What I enjoyed about making these lamb burgers is that you actually get to make your own ground lamb in your food processor.

Chocolate-Swirled Pumpkin Cheesecake

I love the swirls of chocolate cheesecake that are incorporated in this pumpkin cheesecake. They look pretty fancy, but are actually pretty easy. If you know cursive, you should be able to easily pull this off.
