Pumpkin Muffins

Want the perfect fall snack? Bake my pumpkin muffins! I’ve been baking these for years and finally wrote the recipe up for you. These muffins take less than ten minutes to make (I baked these this morning while my coffee was brewing) and twenty minutes in the oven, which means you are thirty minutes from…

Easy Pumpkin Pasta

The best pumpkin pasta sauce I’ve ever had. This is the most incredible pumpkin pasta sauce. Wow. It comes together as quickly as it takes for noodles to boil so make this when you’ve only got twenty minutes to spare and want comfort food. Full of pumpkin puree, chopped fresh sage, parmesan, cinnamon, cream cheese, and…

Pumpkin Hummus

I am so proud of this recipe! It’s pretty rare that I publish a recipe the same day that I eat it but what can I say? I was just too excited for you guys to try this fantastic savory pumpkin appetizer. Hummus is a pretty easy dish. If you have tahini (sesame paste) in…

The Best Spinach Salad

Bacon and dates and pumpkin seeds, oh my! This is one of the best salads I’ve ever made. Spinach, sweet dates, crispy bacon, pumpkin seeds, and mushrooms, and gruyere are tossed with a homemade red wine vinaigrette for a beautiful combination. I was so pleased that I honestly could have had a slightly larger size with…

Pumpkin Picnic

This week I baked one of my favorite fall treats, my pumpkin oreo pie with cinnamon whipped cream, and headed out to Black Star Sport Horses for a little pumpkin picnic with my horse, Wendy. I laid an earth tone colored quilt down in front of the pasture and decorated with a few medium sized…

Pumpkin Sauce

It never ceases to amaze me how many dishes are served with pumpkin sauce in the Caribbean. It really doesn’t even taste like pumpkin by American standards. It reads more carrot to me. Either way, it’s absolutely fantastic alongside any fried fish dish, such as my Coconut Shrimp. I made this for my Disney Dinners:…

Mini Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have long thought I should start a support group for those of us who liked pumpkin before the Pumpkin Spice Latte. As a lifelong pumpkin lover I find it incredibly frustrating that all pumpkin things seem to now be pumpkin spice. These are not. Like my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, these mini cheesecakes are pure…

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread with Orange Glaze

There’s just something about pumpkin and orange and chocolate that makes me want to do cartwheels across the living room. I start craving this recipe in July! This pumpkin bread is incredibly moist. The brown sugar gives it a unique depth of flavor, the chocolate chips are a pleasant surprise when you slice into the loaf, and…

Pumpkin Pancakes with Toasted Hazelnuts and Cinnamon Sugar

I would like to go on record to say that I loved pumpkin before it was trendy. I want to start a support group for those of us who were pro-pumpkin before the famous pumpkin spice latte. Pre-PSL Pumpkin People, perhaps? I don’t actually care for the PSL – I’m a cinnamon dolce latte gal…
