Tasty Tuesday: All Things Pumpkin

Today a young woman I know confessed, “All I can think about is pumpkin! All I want to eat is pumpkin! It must be the time of year!” I totally agree. It IS pumpkin season. Everywhere I look, I see glorious deep orange pumpkins and I’m tempted to drool, just a little. Some of my favorite treats are made from pumpkin and I wanted to remind you of a few of them.

And this last recipe is not my own but one that I searched out today when I was brainstorming all my favorite pumpkin treats: Pumpkin Spice Latte!

If you don’t feel like making your own Pumpkin Spice Latte at home, remember that Stick Boy Bread Company is offering this delicious hot drink right now. They also offer a delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake as well as a Pumpkin Spice Cake for those of us who are running too hard to bake this week!

Every year I pick up a couple more fabulous pumpkin recipes and I haven’t found this year’s treasures yet. Do you have a pumpkin recipe that you’re dying to share? I’d love to hear what YOUR favorite pumpkin recipe is. I’ll be adding to this list over the next few days, so wrestle those pumpkins away from the jack-o-lantern carvers and pop them in the oven!

  1. I like pumpkin in black beans with Indian spices and coconut. It is soooooo good.

    • Oh my goodness, that sounds amazing. Do you have a recipe or is this just more of a playing-it-by-ear sort of thing?

  2. We just made pumpkin spice latte MUFFINS for the first time ever and they were an immediate hit. Thanks for sharing the recipes – I’ll definitely be trying them out soon.

  3. Pumpkin is my favorite most favorite food ever. If hubby or anyone else is to ever bring me a pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin bread or something related it makes me feel loved. 🙂

    These look fabulous, lady! Could you remind us how to cook a fresh pumpkin to get the “meat” to make these delicious recipes?

    • Hi Anna,

      Just last week I cooked three pumpkins while! I covered them with oil and stuck them in oven for a little bit over an hour or until my knife stuck through them like butter. Then I just peeled the outside off and let them cool and opened them up to scoop out the seeds. Yum! Super easy pumpkin!
