Watermelon and Malibu Blue at the Atrium

 

As September starts, there is an unofficial sense that “summer is over”. Pumpkin flavors start arriving, and the leaves start turning. Well it’s a good thing that this summery wedding took place on August 31st, just before “autumn” began!

Eating with the Eyes

 

Food is a central part to any entertainment; most of our get-togethers with friends or family involve food.  Sometimes, it’s even used as bribery (community service projects, anyone?) There’s something about us humans that think “it’s not a party unless it has food!”

We at Savory understand the need for food, especially at weddings and corporate events. However, we take it to the next level and actually have the food be a source of entertainment.

Rustic Wedding in Hobble Creek

 

One of the prettiest places in Utah is Hobble Creek Canyon. It is beautiful mountain country just minutes away from Springville. In June, we had the opportunity to cater a wonderful wedding ceremony and reception up at the Hobble Creek Lodge. The lodge is nestled up against the canyon walls and has many beautiful landscaping features in addition to the massive house. The owners rent this space for family vacationers as well as weddings.

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting




Hi all! Jessica here, and I love reading food blogs. It really inspires me to see how other people try new recipes and I love learning all I can about baking. Baking definitely takes patience! My sister Haley is the  best baker in our family (well, after my mom). 
For one family get-together, my mother-in-law asked me to provide some dessert treat. Its fall and I really wanted to accentuate the best fall flavors. I thought about pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but thought it would be too “boring”.  Thats one trait I get from my mom– she is always creative in the kitchen!


 I found this recipe here: Its from Ina Garten


First, in baking always sift the dry ingredients together. It is very important to mix dry and wet ingredients separately. 

Now for the wet ingredients:

I always crack my eggs in a darker color bowl so I can catch any shells.

After the eggs, pumpkin purée, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vegetable oil are whisked together, its time to add the dry ingredients. 

Add slowly and don’t overmix! Speed should be on low

 As a novice, I’m not able to ‘eyeball’ the portions. I always use a measuring cup to make sure all cupcake tins are equal. This recipe only made 10 cupcakes, so I had to double it. You know our Utah families are large!

Next, is the cream cheese frosting with maple flavoring. YUMM! Make sure to use confectioner’s sugar, it is much more fine than regular granulated sugar. You want a smooth texture for the cream cheese frosting.

Ina Garten uses a Heath bar for garnish, I used a Symphony bar. Anything with chocolate and toffee will go great!

I am one of those girls who don’t like a lot of frosting on the cupcake. Weird, I know, but I usually end up picking off half of the frosting.

Overall these were a big hit! The pumpkin cake is so moist, the pumpkin and the maple flavors go really well together!
