Easy Halloween recipes

What can you do when you get a pumpkin from your bf dad's kitchen garden? (i don't even know if this is right to say in!)

My bf and me decided to dedicate our sunday to cook some pumpkin recipe together!
Let's start with the risotto ( i love risotto! )
Ingredients for 2 people:
Half a litre of vegetable stock
200g rice
25g butter
White wine
An onion
150g pumpkin
Greated Parmigiano.
Start cleaning the pumpkin from the seeds, then cut it in little dices.
Chop the onion in very little pieces, put it in a pan with some oil and let it to brown.
At this point add the pumpkin's dices, wait till they get soft then add the rice, mix it all for a few minutes, then add a sprinkle of wine.

Now start adding, little by little, the vegetable stock and let it all cook for about 20 mins (just taste if the rice is soft, and if the stock dry off).
At the very end add the butter and some parmigiano.

And now..Pumpkin cake, a very very easy one!
300g pumpkin
350g white flour 00 type.
3 eggs
100g butter
250g sugar
1 sachet baking powder
Almond essence
1 coffee cup of milk
150g dark chocolate

Cook the pumpkin in the oven till it get very soft.
Blow up the butter with the sugar till it became homogeneus and then add the red part of the eggs little by little (save the white too for later), keep blowing it.
Then, while blowing, add the flour the pumpkin and the almond essence, when it get creamy add the milk, the baking powder and the white part of the eggs that you previously blowed up.
Now put in the oven for 30 minutes to 180 degrees.

When it is ready, melt the dark chocolate with a microwave and pour it on the cake like icing.

And that's all.
Isn't it easy?
if i can do it you can as well, for sure ;)
