Pumpkin Chunkin

Just in case our recently featured pumpkin cheesecake isn't your thing, here are some additional ideas as we head towards the Thanksgiving holiday. It's kind of a mystery why we only enjoy these recipes this time of year, since they're all made with available-anytime ingredients, but whatever it is, it's probably the same reason people don't make s'mores in the winter. 

Anyway, I hope you give some of these great pumpkin recipes a try soon, while there's still time. Just click on the recipe title links, and away you go. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pancakes

It's a crime these aren't a regular item on diner menus. 

Pumpkin Scones

There are some colors that only occur with food, and this is one of them. Look for "pumpkin scone" on a paint chip near you.

Best Pumpkin Pie Ever

Since no one can prove otherwise, my legal team is fine with this recipe's outrageous claim. 

Low Fat Pumpkin Flan

There are some things that just shouldn't work, but they do, and sometimes those things are low-fat flans.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

You can pretend these are healthier for you than regular cinnamon rolls, since they're made with nutritious pumpkin, but we know the truth.

Why must I look at your posts at 9:30pm. It's torture, and I'm way too tired at this point to go and cook something amazing.

Some blogging chef is going to become famous and dearly loved because he refuses to get caught up in holidays and as a result, provides relief to the hungry with Something Else . . .

Corned beef on Thanksgiving Day? Christmas pork chops? St. Patty's day eel?
