Pumpkin Season (with lots of recipe links!)
It's pumpkin season and pumpkin definitely ranks as one of my favorite flavors of fall.
If you love pumpkin, too, here are some ideas to bring some orange to your autumn menus.
First, how about some simple Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bars? They're super easy and really good!
A bit more work, but simply sublime: Pumpkin Cheesecake.
Here's a link to the Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe I shared in my Augusta Chronicle column that's a bit simpler than the one pictured: Easy Pumpkin Cheesecake.
Sometimes I can't decide whether I want pie or cake, so this Pumpkin Pecan Pie Cake satisfies both cravings.
And, this Pumpkin Flan is just amazing in the way it combines two of my favorites: Flan and Pumpkin. Yum!
And, I don't limit my pumpkin consumption to dessert. Try these delicious Curried Pumpkin Rolls the next time you're baking up a ham or braising a pork loin.
What's your favorite way to enjoy pumpkin in the fall? I'm thinking I'll have to come up with some new pumpkin recipes soon. Maybe pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin coffee cake, pumpkin muffins with maple cream cheese frosting...What about you?
