Most Pumpkinful Time of the Year


My favorite pumpkin 10-29-08

If you follow me on Pinterest, you couldn’t help but notice I have a thing for pumpkin.   While I love fall for its crisp, cool mornings and warm, sunny afternoons, for its sweaters and boots, for its beautiful leaves, if I could only choose one thing to love best, it would be pumpkin’s availability.

The Knight rolled his eyes when I brought pumpkin flavored creamer to my cheek in the grocery store, but then the darling man dropped two boxes (home and office!) of Dunkin’s pumpkin K-cups on my desk.   (Available only at your local Dunkin Donuts retailer.)

I like sweet pumpkin, savory pumpkin… any pumpkin.  Do you have a favorite pumpkin recipe?

    Hmmm – how is the pumpkin coffee? I love the pumpkin stuffed shells with marscipone cheese. I’m also going to try the pumpkin raviolli that I pinned – but put it in shells. I picked up a jar of pumpkin pasta sauce at Cost Plus World Market. But one of my favorites is the super easy pumpkin muffins with spice cake and pumpkin!

    Rob likes pumpkin pie and bread. The dogs don’t like canned pumpkin but do like it fresh when we carve a pumpkin. I don’t like it at all. I’ve never liked fall much, nor Halloween so I guess pumpkin goes along with all that.

    I just put all the ingredients for sandra lees pumpkin pancakes on my grocery list…

    Hands down, my favorite is pumpkin pie!

    You would love the Nips candy that is “Pumpkin Spice.” Honestly, it tastes like pumpkin pie and is soooo good. Last year, I found them at Walgreens in the holiday aisle.

    I think one of my all time favorites was a chocolate pumpkin marble bundt cake from Sunset magazine (the west coast version of Souther Living and keeper of all fabulous recipes). I too LOVE pumpkin, but I’m having to try out some new GF/DF options.

    Gg looks so sweet in her pumpkin shirt. I’d love to give her a snuggle!! I also use the pumpkin K-Cups and I add pumpkin to my sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving. Everyone asks why my sweet potatoes taste so good but I’ll never tell. Oops–I just did!!

    What an adorable baby picture. I love pumpkin pie. Love pumpkin bread and muffins, too, but the pie is my favorite, bar none.

    Pumpkin! Yes, this is a great thing about this time of year!

  12. I do follow you on Pinterest and your pumpkin board is Spooktacular!!! I don’t know why but I just never figured you for a Pumpkin Girl. Boy was I wrong!!! I just pinned your Cranberry Bread Pudding with Pumpkin Creme Anglaise. Oh yum!

    Thanks for sharing, Channon. Say hi to the “girls” for me:) And that sweet Knight of yours too:)

    You sounds like a friend at knitting the other night. She had brought pumpkin salsa which was AMAZING!! I didn’t think I’d like it but it was awesome! I love pumpkin cheese cake but overall I’m ok with not too much pumpkin. OH AND PUMPKIN ROLLS made by my MIL!! I need them! NEED them!

    You know I’m right there with ya … loving EVERYTHING pumpkin! We just picked up some Pumpkin Butter (to die for!) and a loaf of Pumpkin/Apple/Cranberry/Cinnamon bread from When Pigs Fly in Maine yesterday when we stopped at their store & restaurant on our way home. YUM-O!
