For some, autumn signals the end of long, sunny summer days. For others, it’s a welcome change to the air and for many, it means just one thing….PUMPKIN!
Out shopping recently, I was overwhelmed, more this year, than any year before, by the number of seasonal items that are pumpkin flavored. There’s the classic pumpkin spiced latte and pumpkin muffins. But I also saw pumpkin flavored ginger ale, pumpkin cream cheese and pumpkin flavored Cheerios. You may love it, you may hate it; I choose to embrace it.
This got me thinking and researching unique pumpkin recipes and I decided to share a few with you all. Enjoy!
