4 Gorgeous Pumpkin Recipes To Celebrate Fall

September 13, 2014

Fall flavors evoke warm, comforting feelings in all of us. One of the most popular fall flavors is pumpkin. That's just fine by us because pumpkin is one of the most flavorful and certainly the healthiest foods to start indulging in. We use pumpkin for many things; pureed pumpkin is perfect for a side dish, dusted with nutmeg and a drizzle of maple syrup. It's also an amazing ingredient in a low fat recipe for chocolate muffins, if you combine a can of pumpkin with a box of chocolate cake mix. So simple and easy! Pumpkin pie is always welcome. Why wait until the holidays? It's a seasonal food that is available right now at the farmer's market. Buy as many pie pumpkins as you have room to store. You will need them when you taste how great the following recipes are:
