I guess if there’s already Christmas stuff out, I should have started eating pumpkin stuff last Easter. Whatever. It’s *finally* cool enough to start scarfing my favorite spicy winter squash mashups after the summer weather from opposite-ville so I’m taking an opportunity to cram in as much baking as I can before the Fall decides it actually wants to be 90 degrees every day to balance out last year’s Polar Vortex. There are a lot of these recipes I’m planning on re-working, too…maybe even in non-paleo form. Scandalous. I’m also cooking my way through Seriously Delish while watching a few more episodes of Dr. Phil than I’m willing to admit. Insane. Funemployment is a busy time, you guys.
OK, OK…Pumpkin Things! For those of you who hate pumpkin, and while I cannot conceive of a world where this is possible I’ll accept it and move on and ask that you just…I dunno…pretend that wherever it says “pumpkin” just insert “chocolate” instead. Chocolate is like Type O blood or super-glue…just a fix-it for everything.
Savory Garlic Pumpkin Bread
Pumpkin Pie Hummus
Pumpkin Spice Latte Muffins
And because I have to…here’s a recipe I loveLOVElove for a pumpkin spice latte that hits all the right notes and still manages to spare me from feeling like my teeth are covered in peach-fuzz.
