Welcome Fall: Bring on the Pumpkin!

One of my favorite things about fall is PUMPKIN! As soon as I start seeing Pumpkin Latte on the menu at Starbucks, I know autumn is in the air. Although, I must admit (listen up, Starbucks!) I absolutely, positively, without hesitation, will NOT drink a pumpkin latte in August! It is a treat reserved for fall and that is how it will stay!

Sheesh - glad I got that out of the way. Now that fall is officially upon us, I'm all about pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, pumpkin flavored chocolate malt balls. I'll be loving the pumpkin puree now through Thanksgiving. And with that, here are a few of my latest favorite pumpkin finds.

Nutella Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, from Saving with Shellie. Three of my favorite things - need I say more???

Autumn Squash Soup, from Spoonful of Flavor. This soup has all the right mix of flavors, spicy and sweet. Great for a cool fall night with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

Pumpkin Enchiladas, from Steph's Bite by Bite. I order pumpkin enchiladas at least once every year from our favorite Mexican restaurant. I confess I've never made them myself, but this recipe sounds very doable. Hhmm, might have to give it a try!

Sparkling Pumpkin Cider Beertail, from And I thought simply drinking pumpkin beer was festive; this sounds outrageous! Can't wait to try it!

And lastly, in the area of design with pumpkins, I give you one elegant and one goofy - for all your party needs!


Have a happy day!
