Cort here, signing in from a kitchen filled with the heavenly scent of pumpkin, cinnamon, and a little bit of nutmeg! We are in the full throes of pumpkin season and I have to ask the burning question:
Are you pumpkin-ed out yet?
I hope not because we have hardly scratched the pumpkin surface this year at my house! And I know everyone is all about pumpkin spice, but I’m not totally into that. For this reason I created this amazing list of 15 more ways to eat pumpkin, or 15-ways-to-eat-pumpkin that don’t involve a latte.
Pumpkin pie is coming soon, so you won’t find it in this roundup. Probably you’ve done the pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. (If you haven’t, tsk tsk. Try this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, or this Bakery-style recipe.) But have you ventured into pumpkin chili? Savory, hearty, filling, and so perfect for fall, it is one of my family’s favorites! Or if you’re feeling ambitious how about making your own pureed pumpkin from those cute little pumpkins you see at the store but then wonder who ever actually eats them? Oh man, and then there are all the pumpkin breads, rolls, and my favorite, pumpkin cornbread! How about Pumpkin freaking Alfredo? (Yes, please.) And my own baby, Pumpkin Pie Blondies which are a beyond incredible blondies with a pumpkin cream cheese filling that will leave you smiling for weeks.
So check all this goodness out! Embrace all this pumpkin love because come the end of March, you’ll regret that you didn’t!
Bake the bread. Share the slices.
