    This is the second recipe of yours I tried out and it was another winner! Just had to make a few substitutions as I can’t get some of the ingredients where I live — I steamed and mashed some kabocha squash to stand in for the pumpkin puree, and used Greek yogurt and cottage cheese instead of quark. Results were still very good! Thanks Amber!

    Hi, this recipe doesn’t display properly for some reason even though I’ve tried opening the page in several different browsers. All I see is a big gray box where the text of the recipe should be. Please take a look, thanks..
