I freaking LOVE October. Pumpkins, costumes, cider, the smell of fallen leaves, MY BIRTHDAY, and lots and lots of candy… what’s not to love?
In celebration of October and all things pumpkin, I’ve put together this little collection of pumpkin recipes to make your life just a little bit easier. I highly suggest you try each and every one of them. After all, you can’t ever have too much pumpkin, right? What’s the worst that could happen? You turn into a big ‘ol jack-o-lantern, Violet Beauregarde style? Admit it, that would be pretty cool.
Pumpkin and cream cheese were made for each other. If you’re craving pumpkin flavored cheese cake, this is a good substitution. You can put it on bagels, crackers, cookies, or just a spoon. It’s gooood.
If you’re not into the coconut-spiciness of the other pumpkin soup, this is a super easy, basic pumpkin soup recipe. And if you’re feeling creative, this soup is an excellent blank canvas for all sorts of delicious add-ins! (black beans, cauliflower, hot sauce, chipotle, whatever)
