It’s Pumpkin Time!!! Finally! My favorite food season is upon us! Happy October 1st ya’ll! Trader Joe’s has rolled out their plethora of pumpkin goodies – did you know they have Pumpkin Bagels and Pumpkin Mochis? This world has gone pumpkin crazy! I love how pumpkin has gone to super duper mainstream in the recent years – I mean look at Starbucks – they rolled out their Pumpkin Spice Latte a month or two ago! Everyone is getting creative with pumpkin nowadays, and you should too! There’s definitely more to pumpkin than pumpkin pie – trust me.
These are 4 of my Pumpkin recipes that I enjoyed making last year! I can’t count how many times I have made this pumpkin bread – you know it’s great when even I make it again and again – my go to recipe for pumpkin bread. This year, I hope to post up some Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting, Pumpkin Pie, and some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!!! Stay tuned for those in the coming weeks! I LOVE PUMPKIN!
1. Pumpkin Chocolate Bread – you can leave out the chocolate chips if you want, but really, why would you do that?
2. Snickerdoodles with Pumpkin Ice Cream – who doesn’t love an ice cream sandwich? I also cheated and used the ever sooooo delicious Trader Joe’s pumpkin ice cream as my filling. You can cheat too, once in awhile. 🙂
3. Pumpkin Mac&Cheese – if you loveee creamy mac&cheese, and you loveee pumpkin, these two things are a match made in heaven. Trust me.
4. Turkey White Bean Chili – when you have leftover pumpkin, what do you do? Use it as a base for a bowl of hot chili! Chilly days are ahead, but don’t let it stop you!
There you have it for now folks! I will soon post many more pumpkin and FALL recipes! Stay tuned!
