Pumpkin time!

Fall baking is one of my favorite things.  I've been eating too much sugary sweet baked stuff lately, so I've been trying to hold myself back from doing too much baking because in our house, I inevitably eat most of whatever I bake.  I did make pumpkin cinnamon rolls and the recipe & photos are coming soon.  But, I wanted to give you this list of pumpkin recipes already on the blog to inspire you to try something new this season.

Baked Goods:
Iced Pumpkin Biscuits (no white flour or sugar)
Pumpkin shaped cake (fun food craft project)
Pumpkin Cookies (2 versions - the best!)
Pumpkin Crumb Cake (super popular every time I make it)
Pumpkin Bundt Cake (easy fall dessert or brunch item)
Pumpkin Cupcakes (not going to lie - from a cake mix)
Pumpkin Zucchini Carrot Bread (a little healthier but still yum)
Pumpkin Banana Bread (another pumpkin quick bread)

Lamb Chops with Apricot Pumpkin Glaze
Penne with Pumpkin & Sage
Pumpkin with cheese fondue (if you only make one recipe on this list, try this)

Other (both are gf):
Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds (amazing)
Pumpkin Ice Cream 

What are your kids going to be for Halloween?  I think big sister is going to be Rapunzel and little sister is going to be a black cat (kitten).


  1. I can vouch for the fondue. It was good last year when Will made it!

  2. A recommendation: Pumpkin ravioli. I never would have tried it myself, but a friend made the filling and we made the pasta fresh. Incredible!
