Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I love fall because of all the squash! I have made so many pumpkin/squash recipes over the years! If you’re looking for some recipe ideas, you can click the links here –> PUMPKIN recipes or SQUASH recipes. The awesome thing about squash is that they come with a bonus inside – the seeds! When roasted,…

Pumpkin Pancakes

I’ve saved the best recipe for the last of pumpkin week! I made these vibrant pumpkin pancakes. The recipe is from Once Upon a Chef (link here). There is no food colouring in these pancakes, the colour comes solely from canned pumpkin puree. Aside from colour, the pumpkin also adds lots of moisture and helps…

Pumpkin Meatballs with Cinnamon-Sage Tomato Sauce

Monday’s pumpkin spice latte (link here) was a great way to start pumpkin week. To continue on with pumpkin posts, I made the perfect fall dinner. I saw this recipe for pumpkin turkey meatballs with a cinnamon-sage tomato sauce and it looked incredible. I knew it would be a wonderful meal and great for this…

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hello hello and welcome to week 2 (of 2) of fall themed recipes on my blog! This week, my special ingredient is PUMPKIN which I think is the food most associated with the season. You already know how much I love squash but pumpkin sort of hits differently. It’s so creamy and sweet but a…

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds + Pumpkin Puree

Fall is the season of squash. There are so many things you can do with squashes, they’re almost as versatile as potatoes. Did you know you can also eat the seeds? It’s true! I had bought a couple pie pumpkins because I wanted to make my own pumpkin puree to use in cooking***. As I…

Recipe #52: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Biscuits

If you’re noticing that I’ve done a few pumpkin recipes in the last little while, you are very observant (Recipe 46Β and Recipe #49). It’s only because I opened a big can of pumpkin and wanted to use it up before it went bad. It’s nice there are multiple pumpkin recipes in this cookbook. All this…

Recipe #49: Turkey, Pumpkin & White Bean Chili

Welcome to month 5! I am basically halfway through this cookbook which is pretty cool. I’m still loving it and having fun trying so many new recipes.Β  On a cold, almost, winter day, soup or chili is a good comfort food that just warms you up nicely. This chili was perfect. It was super hearty…

Recipe #46: Pumpkin Banana Zucchini Loaf

I was really looking forward to this recipe because I love each of those ingredients on their own, and I figured a cake with all three would be even better. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out as well as I hoped. Don’t get me wrong, this cake tasted delicious, but the cooking time was so off….

Recipe #36: Pumpkin Spice Granola

October may be finished but it’s never too late for pumpkin spice-flavoured foods. I honestly love pumpkin and pumpkin spice things. This granola was so tasty – I could eat it all day. The combination of the nuts (I used walnuts, pistachios and almonds), oats and other good stuff with the sweet pumpkin-ey mixture was…

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

I wanted a nice pumpkin pie, but at the same time, I wanted it to be healthyish. I was successful in finding a recipe! Chocolate Covered Katie (Crustless Pumpkin Pie) made this crustless pumpkin pie and I had to make it too. It was pretty easy to make and I followed the directions exactly as…
