Beginning September 1st, there’s one word we start hearing on repeat: pumpkin. Pumpkin this and pumpkin that, pumpkin flavored or pumpkin scented. I don’t remember pumpkin being a trend when I was a kid; they were just those orange things we drove out east to pick and later carve or paint. But pumpkin is most definitely a trend today. Whether the pumpkin itself is re-purposed as household decor or its essence is distilled into candles, lotions, or lattes, pumpkin has become a staple of our fall season.
If you too are pumpkin obsessed, here’s a little list of pumpkin-inspired recipes and projects to keep you in the fall spirit:
Rachael Ray’s Pasta with Pumpkin & Sausage
Pumpkin and Sweet Onion Quesadilla
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins
Wishing you all a happy pumpkin season!
