Simply Put, Pumpkin

I was having a chat with my friend Devon today and as tends to happen when we talk, our conversation turned to wonderful, glorious, food!

I mentioned that I had a bunch of recipes that I'd been collecting all year involving baking with pumpkin.

May I digress for just a moment? Yes, I can bake with pumpkin any ole time of the year. But I just don't feel right about it unless I'm well in to the month of October. And by "well in" I mean about six days.

So, I weeded through my pumpkin recipe collection and made it a more manageable endeavor. I'm going to do one a week and document my progress. Here are the recipes, in case anyone would also like to take a stab at them!

  1. Homemade Pumpkin Ice Cream (Adam T., if you are reading you will be treated to this in a few weeks!)
  2. Pumpkin Butterscotch Nutella Bread
  3. Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Bars
  4. Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
  5. Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Creamy Ginger Filling
  6. Pumpkin Truffles
  7. Pumpkin Pie Pancakes with Pumpkin Maple Syrup
  8. Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
  9. Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling
  10. Pumpkin Spice Donut Muffins
That's ten week's worth of pumpkin recipes! Hopefully I will get so tired of pumpkin by the end that I won't want to venture back into that realm for a long, long time.

Or I will just keep doing it because I love it so very, very much!

Probably that one.

I am so excited about this you'd think I'll actually be eating it. Although, if you need someone to taste test for you ...
