Kale with Bacon, Cranberries, Onions, and Cheese

Makes a nice side dish for two. Any type of kale will do, Very easy to double, triple, etc until pan size becomes limiting factor.

Pumpkin Saffron Bisque

An adaptation of the recipe from The Food Network. We've used marina di chioggia and speckled hen pumpkins from our favorite farmer at Eastern Market. A butternut squash can also be used.

Pumpkin Pie

We tried making pumpkin pies from scratch (like, starting with a pumpkin scratch), but we never quite got it to come out right. We've reverted to Jon's grandmother's closely-guarded recipe, which comes from the side of a Libby's can:

1 can Libby's pure pumpkin
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
2 large eggs
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
¼ tsp cloves
¼ tsp allspice (optional)
1 pie crust

Mix together sugar and spices in a small bowl.

Pumpkin Ravioli

With the arrival of the fall gourds, we decided to make a pumpkin ravioli. We really enjoyed this recipe. The first time, we didn't have enough ricotta cheese, so we added some creme fraiche as a substitute (seemed to work fine...). We used egg pasta sheets (available from the Eastern Market Grocery), though wonton wrappers are a good substitute. We put the dollops of batter evenly spaced on the pasta sheet (4x6 = 24 ravioli), laid a second sheet on top, and then cut into individual raviolis using a pasta cutter. A little water on the fingertips and squeezing the edges seemed to seal them just fine. This recipe yielded 144 ravioli and used 12 pasta sheets.

We used a marina di chioggia pumpkin the first time (greenish color, oval shape) and a peanut pumpkin the second time (orangish color with white "peanuts" all over the outside.

The original recipe came from http://theunemployedcook.blogspot.com/2006/03/pumpkin-ravioli-with-sage-...

Guinness Cottage Pie

This is an abomination, mixing in Guinness into a cottage pie.
The Guinness stew recipe parts are pulled from this recipe; the Shepherd's (lamb) and Cottage pie ingredients have been pulled from here and Epicurious. Cooking for Engineers has a nice pictoral guide.

Ragda Patties

IndianFoodForever provides a good basic chaat recipe for ragda patties. I'd add more tomato and make them very finely diced.

For the Patties (can be done ahead):
3 large Potatoes
1/2 tsp ginger, grated
1/2 tbsp Garam Masala
1/4 tbsp Turmeric
2 Tbsp Bread crumbs
Oil

Peel, quarter, and boil the potatoes until soft, then mash them or pass them through a ricer.
Add spices, mix and knead well into a dough.
Add the bread crumbs and knead well.

Shahi Paneer

A really yummy recipe - great on the first try. The original recipe was for chicken tikki masala, but we used paneer instead of chicken and the result was pretty similar to some of the best Shahi Paneer we had in India.

Modified from Food and Wine.
