Pumpkin recipes and autumn seem almost synonymous. The weather is getting crisp, there’s the smell of burning leaves in the air, and baking seems to be almost a necessity â€” at least in my house. My husband and I both love to bake, and my 3-year-old son loves to get in on the act as well. Since fall is officially here, we figure recipes for pumpkin are only a natural. Good thing we’ve put together this list of 18 perfect pumpkin recipes for us to choose from!
Among the tasty pumpkin recipes I think we’ll be trying this season are this healthy pumpkin pie, just right for when we have company. Personally, I happen to love both cranberries and pumpkin (so does my son, but my husband â€” not so much). That’s why this cranberry pumpkin bread recipe appeals to me. Creamy pumpkin polenta also sounds really good to me, but that’s probably because anything with polenta sounds good to me! A couple other pumpkin recipes that look yummy to try are low-fat lemony lentils with pumpkin and almond pumpkin charlotte.
