Top 10 Pumpkin Favorites
Happy Friday y’all! Sassy here and I am PUMPED that it has started to cool down this week. I know, call me crazy but I could live in 65 degree weather year round, yes I live in Upstate New York and yes I know I’m crazy, but a gal can dream! I also love that pumpkin is coming back in season, call me a basic girl but I love all things pumpkin and could eat it year round (which not going to lie, I do!). This week’s shout out is going to revolve around the beautiful squash and I would love to hear from you if a) you like pumpkin or not and b) if so, tell your favorite thing about pumpkins. Okay, I’ll go first a) I LOVE pumpkin b) homemade pumpkin pie and/or pumpkin ice cream.
My top 10 pumpkin things for this fall:
Primal Palate’s Pumpkin Custard This looks simple and delicious, I may have to try this soon. The bloggers Bill & Hayley from Primal Palate create delicious recipes and they like to share recipes of other food bloggers out there. Yours truly made it on their with my Lamb Burgers once! I think I may try this as an alternative to pumpkin pie this fall and see what the response is!
Crockpot Pork and Chili Pumpkin Chili I’ve mentioned this gal before of Primally Inspired but how yummy and fun does this recipe look! I would love to eat my chili out of a pumpkin 🙂 Anyone ever tried it?
Sassy’ Pumpkin Latte I know, I know a shameless plug but I have been sipping on these ALL week and I am one happy girl! Pumpkin adds such a sweet and delicious touch to your coffee and it makes me feel like fall is coming. Want your coffee to taste even more like pumpkin? Add a pumpkin pie spice to the coffee grounds before grinding them up, you’re welcome 🙂
Pumpkin Hummus Oh hello there! This recipe is great for any gatherings you have this fall season. Have a football game gathering? Bring some pumpkin hummus and cut up veggies. Maybe if you are crafty, cut open a small pumpkin and serve the hummus out of the pumpkin, overachieve a bit!
Pumpkin No Bake Energy Bites I cannot wait to make these, they look simple and delicious, win-win! I mean who doesn’t want a no-bake treat while getting great nutrition from pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and more.
Pumpkin Seed Recipes When you are making jack-o-lanterns with your kiddos save the seeds, don’t throw them away. Roast them with one of these delicious recipes and never let the pumpkin go to waste.
Pumpkin Cider Harpoon makes a delicious hard cider for the fall. In general I am not a big hard cider fan as most are loaded with sugar and they are not enjoyable. However, I stumbled upon this cider last fall while visiting my friend Kelsey in Boston and we ventured to the Harpoon Brewery. The tour was awesome but while everyone was sipping on the beer I was enjoying some water, woop! The bar tender suggested I give the pumpkin cider a try, I said sure but figured it would be a cup of sugar in water. Wrong! While still sweet it only has 7 grams of sugar in 12 fl. oz. and is mild in taste. Bottoms Up!
Homemade pumpkin puree by The Healthy Foodie. Do you love to decorate the house with pumpkins but end up throwing all the pumpkins away? Stop! Try this pumpkin puree recipe and freeze any leftovers to use year round for all of your favorite pumpkin recipes.
Twine Pumpkins I totally stumbled upon this blog by accident but this doc did her medical residency in Albany and she has ADORABLE crafts on here. Going to have to try and make some twine pumpkins, who is with me?! Now that I have a house I suppose I should decorate, who is coming over for craft night?
Teal Pumpkin Project Okay, we may be a month plus out from Halloween but I love the idea behind this project and want you all to be aware of it. This project sheds light on children (and adults) that face food allergies, and unfortunately that number is growing each year. This year pledge to offer non-food related treats for those with food allergies (or heck for those that don’t want all the sugar) and place a teal painted pumpkin outside of your house! Tag #tealpumpkinproject and join in on the movement.
