Beyond Pumpkin Pie

Confession #1--I don't like pumpkin pie, but I will pretty much try anything else with pumpkin in it. This has NOT always been the case for me. I was never in love with pumpkin until the Fall of 2006 when I was pregnant with my son. Now, scouting out pumpkin recipes is a mini obsession. One of the many reasons I love fall...

Some pumpkin recipes I routinely make: Dinner in a Pumpkin, Melissa's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, Pumpkin Dip, and Pumpkin Crunch (like Dump Cake, but with pumkin).

I'm going to post some pumpkin/Halloween recipes I wish I could try. Will the hospital let me have an Easy Bake Oven in my room? :-) What a fun blog that would be!! I may be on to something...

Confession #2--You know, I've never liked candy corn either. It sure does fascinate me though, it's pretty, fun, cheap, and yet another fabulous fall treat. Here are some candy corn goodies I found:

Candy Corn Bark
(I'm all about my sweet tooth, but this may be TOO sweet! Maybe a little more pretzel and a little less sweet treats?)

Candy Corn Cordial

Lick the Bowl Good's Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats

Smitten Kitchen's Pumpkin Waffles

Real Simple's Pumpkin Cornmeal Muffins

101 Cookbook's Thai Spiced Pumpkin Soup

The Mother Load's Creamy Pumpkin Pasta

(This looks great, but I don't love Italian Sausage--would probably substitute with ground turkey sausage, even sausage links or good ol' Jimmy Dean in this one!)

Sunset's Spicy Avocado Poblano Salad
I should stop, but I can't....

Cooking Light's Pumpkin Ravioli with Gorgonzola Sauce

On to some sweet treats...

Libby's Pumpkin Roll

Picky Palate's Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate Caramel Corn

Picky Palate's Black Bottomed Mini Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites

Lick the Bowl Good's Pumpkin Spice Latte:

This one is by far prettier than Starbuck's version!
