Fall officially began on September 23rd, and with it comes baking and cooking with a beloved favorite: pumpkin.
It’s this time of year that excites me most from a culinary perspective. Scents of apple, cinnamon, pumpkin, and nutmeg fill my kitchen with autumn splendor. This also means that I’m hungrily in search of new ways to integrate these flavors into my oven and my skillet.
Pumpkin is a very versatile ingredient that incorporates well in a variety of sweet and savory dishes. From breakfast to dessert, there are few meals that pumpkin can’t enhance when included with other flavors and spices. To kick off the season that celebrates pumpkin dishes in all their delectable forms, I wanted to share some exciting recipes both from Flour and Fancy and from other food bloggers that place this delicious ingredient center stage!
