It’s Autumn Y’all!
Fall is my favorite time of year. Always has been, always will be. It helps that my birthday is in mid-October and my first born arrived right before Halloween almost 9 years ago.
Cool mornings, falling leaves, clear sunny skies, festivals and of course PUMPKIN OBSESSION! While we are all starting to get over our back to school hangovers, pumpkin everything starts to hit the stores, everyone’s social media sites, blogs, including pumpkin patches pop up overnight.
Pumpkins are the quintessential fall food. Let’s face it! It starts with Halloween and continues into Thanksgiving. One cannot enjoy all things fall without a little bit of that glorious, round orange edible fruit.
Below are 5 of my favorite fall pumpkin recipes that you mamas must add to your online recipe books.
