Here’s to fall and holiday time with a roundup of 100+ awesome pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin flavors everything from pancakes to breads, cakes to cookies, main dishes to sides and everything in-between. You’re going to want to try them all!
Pumpkin and pumpkin spice are everywhere! And you know the season is here when the weather turns cooler, we don our sweaters and all the trees become ablaze with color. These pumpkin recipes, from my blogger friends, will likely make you drool and will definitely give you plenty of inspiration entering the holiday season. Just think pumpkin bread, pumpkin chili,pumpkin cupcakes and pumpkin pie. You name it, we got it!
Now you’re probably wondering how pumpkins became so popular. I know here in Georgia, every corner seems to have it’s own pumpkin patch. Interestingly enough, it wasn’t originally an American custom. Europeans brought over the pumpkins and the tradition of carving them. They made them into lanterns with scary carvings in order to ward off evil spirits. We continue the carving tradition to this day.
In fact, like me, most Americans can hardly wait for pumpkins to appear on the scene. They trigger happy memories of fall leaves, fire pits, good will and, the beginning of the holiday season. These recipes “really struck a gourd with me” (I know, I couldn’t help myself) and hope you enjoy them too.
