10 Delicious Pumpkin Recipes

Eat seasonally. Fall.

There was a hint of crisp coolness and there was no denying fall is in the air. That’s when I decided. It’s time to kickoff the upcoming pumpkin season.  Pin it now to have the recipes for later. Click through to grab the pumpkin goodness.

You’re either going to be happy to see this [because you love all things pumpkin as much as I do] or you’re going to be totally annoyed [because it’s too early and you’re not ready for summer to end]. After all, fall is only 19 days away.

Yesterday evening my daughter and I went for a walk after dinner. There was a hint of crisp coolness and there was no denying fall is in the air. That’s when I decided. It’s time to kickoff the upcoming pumpkin season. Why wait, right.

  1. I love pumpkin all year round but I do love to see the Fall recipes roll out every year.

    1. It’s crazy Elle. As much as I love pumpkin I still only eat it during the fall. It’s a mindset for my favorite season. Have a terrific Thursday!

  2. I think I might be one of the few people who doesn’t like the taste of pumpkin. Could that partly be because I hate to see summer end and I hate colder temperatures? 🙂

    1. You’re definitely in the minority Kathryn. What is your favorite fall food? I’m in denial about the pending cold temps. I won’t even say the W word.

  3. I loveeeeeee pumpkin!!! Before I started my food blog last October, I had never even cooked with pumpkin or had pumpkin spiced lattes but now I’m hooked and I’m not looking back lol

    1. There’s no going back Lara. Cooking with pumpkin is so yummy and the aromas are wonderful if you’re baking.

  4. I just opened my first can of pumpkin puree for the season. I’m SO ready for fall to start. Thanks for the awesome list of pumpkin-y recipes! Can’t wait to try some of them. 🙂

  5. I am happy that fall is near although it’s still so summer-like here I find it very hard to believe! Maybe making a few of these recipes will help make fall a reality!

    1. Hi Diane. How are you? The weather has changed and it feels like summer again. I’m ignoring it and embracing fall 🙂

      Did you try the recipes to get in the spirit of fall?

  6. Lol, can I say annoyed because summer is over and we are already talking fall food and happy cause I’m loving your mini recipes. Perfect for portion control.

  7. I’m so ready for fall and pumpkin! I do want to try more pumpkin recipes this year like adding it to my oatmeal, and protein pancakes. So basic but I have never really done this and only actually tried pumpkin pie last year!

  8. yessssss, I need to check these all out as a pumpkin obsessed girl :p

    Sarah Grace

  9. I love pumpkin! Great round up! I used to be sad when fall came when I lived in NY because I knew colder weather was around the corner, now I don’t mind living in Florida!

    1. Hi Toni. I dont’ even think about the W word. See I can’t even say it. Have a wonderful Saturday!

  10. I have never eaten pumpkin as a dessert, but your pictures are tempting me to try it.

    1. Oh Priya you’re missing out. Try a pumpkin dessert and let me know what you think. How about pumpkin breakfast?

    1. Me too! It’s the second thing I think of every year when fall is coming. First is the nice cool weather. Have a fantastic weekend!

  11. Thanks for this! I am in the “OMG I’M SO EXCITED IT’S FALL” camp 😉 The weather changed SO quickly here, and I’m totally ready for boots and sweaters and scarves and warm things!

    1. I’m right there with you in the “OMG I’M SO EXCITED IT’S FALL” camp! I’m going shopping for boots this weekend 🙂

      Have a fantastic weekend Ariana!

  12. I’m not quite ready to let go of fall and to embrace the pumpkin. I usually wait until October. September is apple month for me. Apple pie, apple crisp, apple sauce . . . yum!

  13. Oh my gosh. This post has me wanting to run to the kitchen to make something yummy to eat!!!

    1. I know. Right. That’s how I felt when I was writing this. Nice to meet you Lindsay 🙂

  14. I’m in the annoyed category. 😉
    Although the weather here is way more fall than summer so I guess I have to get out of denial.

    1. Oh no. Sorry I annoyed you but it’s all just so good. I couldn’t resist. I don’t think you’ll stay annoyed for very long 😉

      Have an amazing weekend Jen!

    1. Hi Wendy. I hope you’re husband enjoys the pumpkin goodness. What is your favorite fall fruit or veggie?

  15. Mmm! I am so hoping it turns to fall soon! These 90 degree days are just killer, haha. These recipes though look AMAZING! Pumpkin is really good for you so it should be used more than just one time a year 😉

    1. When I start cooking and baking with pumpkin I always wonder why I wait until fall. It’s a seasonal mentality. Or maybe only having it this time of year is part of what makes it so good.

      Have a fabulous weekend Heather.

  16. Can I be in both camps? I’m annoyed summer is coming to an end, but happy because I love pumkin everything! Honestly, fall isn’t even that bad, I just hate that winter comes right after it. On the bright side, this is really the best time of the year. We get summer weather AND pumpkin food/drinks. Okay, I’ve talked myself into being happy and not annoyed 🙂
    Happy weekend!

    1. Yay! Welcome to the happy camp. Where we never speak of the W word. See. I can’t even say it 🙂

      Have a wonderful weekend Julie.

  17. I’ve never gotten into the whole pumpkin everything deal….peanut butter is another story.

  18. Can’t wait to try all of these!!! They all look Amazing esp the mini cakes!

    1. Hi Katie. The mini cakes are so good and easy to make. I’m partial to mug cakes 🙂

  19. I’m totally refusing to acknowledge that fall is starting. (Probably because we had such a rough winter in New England!) I think I’ll admit it in October.

    1. I’m not even going to say the W word. I hope that doesn’t mean you’re in the annoyed camp 😉

      Have a wonderful weekend Kristen!

  20. I love this! I am at my parent’s house and my mom has pumpkin everything, including pumpkin squares, which I had to sample! Can’t wait to check out some of these recipes!

    1. Good morning Nichole. I always wonder, if we love pumpkin so much why don’t we eat and cook with it all year long. It’s a seasonal mentality thing.

      Have a fantastic weekend!

  21. I’m going to try some of these recipes- my husband loves pumpkin stuff!

    1. Hi Sara. It’s so nice to meet you. I hope your husband enjoys the recipes! Are you a pumpkin fan too or just your husband?

  25. I love pumpkin and can’t wait for fall to be here! However, in Florida we tend to just skip right over this season… ugh. I love savory pumpkin dishes and that chili recipe looks delicious!

    1. I remember when I lived in FL (and CA) it never really felt seasonal. That is one thing I love about the midwest. Thanks Carly and have a fabulous weekend.

  26. Yes, it’s pumpkin time!! I’m very excited about it and hopefully I’ll finally follow through and try some delicious pumpkin recipes from scratch!

    1. This will be your year of pumpkin from scratch Janelle. I just know it. And if not, that’s ok too 🙂

  27. I love pumpkin, but I’m not quite there yet! It’s still 88 degrees today! I like to hang onto summer for as long as possible. BUT love your wrap up and it will be handy very very soon!

    1. Hi Julie, so I’ll count that as in the not quite ready camp. That’s better than the annoyed camp 🙂 Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!

  28. I am right there with you– I love all things pumpkin! In fact, I have a pumpkin pie smoothie today for breakfast 🙂 Thanks for all the yummy ideas!

    1. Hi Amanda, I love love pumpkin smoothies. I think I’ll make one after yoga this morning. Have a fabulous day!

  29. I’ll be ready for this in about 3 weeks. For now, I’m still holding on to my peaches, made even easier to do while it is 90 degrees outside!

    1. Hi Susie. Not ready for fall but not annoyed either 🙂 I will miss summer fruits and veggies.

  30. this post got me way too excited! yes to pumpkin and fall!

  31. As soon as this freaking heat wave is over- I will be pumpkining and pumpkin spicing ALL the things!

  32. Happy! So very happy! I’ve been making several pumpkin recipes lately for testing and even though it is still hot out, I don’t mind!

    1. Hi Megan. So far the happys outweigh the annoyed 🙂 I’m looking forward to your recipes.

  33. Hi pumpkin! Happy camper here! Im not ready to make these yet, but Im def pinning for later! Im still in apple mode…which reminds me…I have a similar (apple) recipe I need to revisit too! Thanks for refreshing my memory and sharing the awesome!

    1. Hi Autumn. Has apple season started and I missed it? Or do you just love apples 🙂 I hope you’ll share your recipe.

      1. I do love apples. Dont worry you didnt miss apple season. Or at least I dont think you did (geography/harvest). For me in (CT) Apples begin first at the end of Aug til end of Oct. Pumpkin picking begins Oct. The recipe I mentioned…I want to re-do it…I will def share! Let me know where you want me to put it! 🙂

  34. I’m annoyed … but I want to check out those mini spice cakes! And the soup and chili recipes ….

    1. I’m sorry I annoyed you. I’ll have to make it up to you with a post that you will love 😉

  35. I looooove pumpkin so I’m definitely pinning this for later! The heat wave here is really messing with my seasonal mentality!

    1. Seasonal mentality is a great way to put it Michelle. Those feelings when you’re ready for cooler temps of fall after summer or blue skies of spring after winter. Thanks for pinning and have a wonderful weekend.

  36. I’m in the happy camp (mostly). Sad to lose daylight but excited for the cooler nights and less humidity. And the beautiful trees when they change. And, of course, PUMPKIN!!! Thank you so much for sharing all of these 🙂

  37. I definitely have mixed feelings about summer ending! I don’t really like pumpkin all that much, but seeing it everywhere definitely reminds me of fall. I am feeling ready for cooler temps but not quite ready for summer to be over!

    1. Mixed feelings is better than annoyed haha You still have a few weeks of summer. 🙂

  38. I’m not annoyed, that’s for sure. 🙂 Despite this weird heat wave, I’m very ready for fall. Thanks for including my recipe in your round up! I’m pinning right now. 🙂
