10 Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

Hello! I hope you are relaxing with a cup of coffee and perusing a few blogs to catch up on all the latest posts. I love to take an hour or two to see what I have missed during the week, honestly there are so many great blogs with recipes, book reviews, adventures, and more it is hard to keep up. 

As I mentioned (a few times) pumpkin is a favorite of mine, and I have been making tons and tons of pumpkin things. I have not made note of all of my culinary adventures here because then I would have to rename the blog, let me just say that a few were not that good and a few were made for dinner and I have not managed to perfect night images. 

If you too are a pumpkin fan then here are ten recipes that I have made here or on my other blog, Once Upon a Chocolate Life.

  4. Oh yum! I've never tried pumpkin in chili and you can't beat a Mac and Cheese on a cold winter night.

    Thanks for sharing!


    1. Leslie,

      The Mac and cheese is to die for, I could eat the entire pan. And the chili is fab too.

  5. Ooh blue cheese pumpkin Macaroni sounds divine. I haven't had macaroni cheese for years, so overdue!

    1. Paul, do try the macaroni! You will really enjoy it if you like cheese and noodles!

  6. Wow, those pumpkin cheesecake bars look yummy!! And I'm still trying to get up the nerve to try the pumpkin Mac and cheese!!

    1. The bars are so good, and I love the frosting. The mac and cheese is my favorite!

  7. I am planning pumpkin
    pancakes sometime this
    week : ) These all sound
    so good, particularly the
    shells, which I have to try!

    Happy Sunday, Elizabeth.
