Holiday Coffee

Seasonal Coffee is the Best

This Holiday Coffee Recipe is a real fun way to kick off your December with the latest tastes and fragrances of this Winter Season.  You’ve got a balance of a Classic Roast with a hint of Cinnamon, Cloves and Orange Marmalade.  It smells festive and it tastes like the Holidays are, literally, in the air.  So if you’re looking for a recipe that everyone will enjoy, look now further, this blend is for you.

French Press Coffee

In this recipe I’m using a French Press to derive every last drop of flavor for every cup of Coffee.  These are very easy to use and fairly inexpensive.  In fact the one I’m using here is made by Kona.  It was sent to me recently to demonstrate it’s use so I can give one away for free to one of you that likes, comments and shares this recipe.  I will choose one lucky winner this next week.  All you have to do is help me get the word out about this recipe and Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen.  This is my way of saying thank you for all of your support.  And remember you can follow me on facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram!

Drop Biscuits

I love Drop Biscuits

This is the perfect Drop Biscuits recipe for you.  They are very light and fluffy and they pack a sweet buttery flavor that just melts in your mouth.  They only take a few minutes to mix and they are in and out of the oven in practically no time at all.  I would dare say that this Drop Biscuits recipe is better than KFC’s Biscuits.  And if you’re making Biscuits and Gravy then this is most definitely the recipe for you.  But, I would highly recommend that you try them with my family Egg Gravy.

My Egg Gravy recipe doesn’t have the traditional sausage base, which is fantastic by the way, no my egg gravy recipe derives it’s flavor from bacon and I can personally guarantee that it’s the best breakfast gravy you will ever have.  So I’ll include a link for that, down below, plus a link to my Scotch eggs recipe; which is another fun filled breakfast recipe.

The Best Pumpkin Pie Turnovers

If you want to change up your Thanksgiving dessert this year or if you just want to try something fun, these Pumpkin Pie turnovers are just the thing and they taste great.  In this video tutorial, I make them small, like little mini turnovers but you can make them any size you want.  It doesn’t matter if you like to cook down a fresh a pumpkin and make these from scratch or if prefer to use a can of Pumpkin Puree.  Either way, you’re going to need basic Pumpkin Pie Ingredients, listed down below, to get this recipe started.

Pumpkin Pie Turnovers Experience

My Experience with Turnovers is personal.  When I was a child, I was babysat by a family that owned an A&W shop that went belly up.  I stayed good friends with their son for years and eventually they got back on their feet and bought a bakery.  They delivered bread to local restaurants, sold all kinds of desserts, cakes, pies, donuts and of course Turnovers.  And just like the Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen, they didn’t care too much for waste.  So anything left over would often find its way home.  It wasn’t often, but sometimes my friends would offer me a slice here or there.  But, my absolute favorite was the turnovers.  I’m not sure they ever made Pumpkin Pie Turnovers, per say but I sure had my fair share of Apple, Lemon and Raspberry.

Be sure to check out my Pumpkin Pie Milkshake.  It’s so good and easy to make. You can even use leftover pumpkin pie as the base.

Pumpkin Pie Turnover Ingredients:

1 can or 4 cups Pumpkin Puree, plus can ingredients
(ground ginger, cloves, cinnamon, sugar, salt, eggs & evaporated milk)
Just follow the Manufacturer’s recipe recommendations

1 box Pie Crust dough
1 egg, for egg wash

Glaze
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Add more sugar if you want the glaze thicker
