Autumn has Arrived, It’s Time for Pumpkin Recipes!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Today is the first day of Autumn, and even though we haven’t seen too much of a change down here in sunny southern California, I am ready to dive head first into some fall flavors!

Just this week, the mornings have cooled down enough that I can now wear my comfy slippers rather than flip flops when I walk down the driveway to pick up the morning paper.  And that alone is enough to make me crave warm pumpkin pancakes dripping with butter and maple syrup!

Can you tell that I’ve been looking forward to the end of summer?

So I thought perhaps I’m not the only one who is already excited to start a season filled with pumpkiny delights!  I spent the morning rounding up all my own pumpkin recipes and then headed to Food Blog Search to dig up some more pumpkin recipes that look appealing.  Happy browsing!

    I’m definitely ready for fall flavors! I posted about pumpkin today, too. There’s just something about the fall and pumpkin…

    Shoot…I was just thinking about how I can make my Pumpkin & Apple Risotto now just the other day. I’ll have to write it up this time 😉

    Ryan: You should definitely write about it! Sounds wonderful!

    I’m ready for it too! I bought a pumpkin scone at SB this morning and it made me think of your homemade ones you posted a while back. So yummy, love the fall flavors. They even have fall flavors for baby foods, and Abby loves it…pumpkin, squash with a nutmeg flavor…yummy!

    I’m so glad you posted this! Just the other day I was scrounging your website looking for anything pumpkin related. YUM!

    It seems all is right with the world today… I have power back after Ohio’s version of hurricane Ike, and Nicole’s blogging again.

    I only wish I’d been paying attention for that cool knife contest!

    Ruby: Has Abby been “sharing” her baby food with you again? 😉
    Britney: Happy to be of some help!
    Curt:Glad to hear your power’s back on! And yes, it’s good to be blogging again!

    Thanks so much for the link Nicole! I am extremely excited for all things pumpkin all the time…at least for the next few weeks 🙂

    This is my favorite time of year. The smell and taste of pumpkin with the holiday feeling. I look forward to the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks every year…and the scones like Ruby said. We have our latte and stroll the Santa Monica promenade in the cool weather:) And i am sure that your new home is going to smell so yummy. Maybe i will get brave enough to try a pumpkin recipe:)

    OH yum..Thanks for sharing all the links! You know I am going to want to make the mini cheesecakes! My 7 year old has been wanting a pumpkin pie too. I love to just smell it.. I’ve got my pumpkin candles out. I’m bombarded w/ apples now (we have trees) and I have got to get some pies made!
    Thanks again!

    My favorite season and my favorite flavors. I am already starting today with some acorn squash. Yummy, and all the pumpkins I have been seeing is making me so excited about cooking and getting into the spirit of fall and winter 🙂 Also cooking with apples and making hot spiced apple cider.
    Have a beautiful autumn day.

    Erin: You’re welcome!
    Steph: You should definitely try a pumpkin recipe or two!
    Alyce: You’re welcome! I think I might the pumpkin cheesecakes again just to get a better photo! 🙂
    Anna: Yum! I was thinking about picking up some acorn squash this week. I might use it for soup, but haven’t decided yet!

    Nicole- Those pumpkin pancakes look divine. I bet they’d be wonderful gluten-free with a couple of tweaks. Yum. And thanks for including one of my recipes!

    Mmmm…I love fall and pumpkin! I just read through your archives a few days ago and saved almost all your pumpkin recipes. They sound so good I can’t wait to try them out!

    This is a great collection of pumpkin recipes. Now I know where to start looking.
    Thanks! Now If it would just cool down a tad.

    Great links. I’ll have one order of pancakes and another of the pasta with pumpkin and sage….

    Karina: I’m going to take your advice and pick up some GF pancake mix. These will be fun to make for a friend who has recently had to give up gluten!
    Julo: I’m hoping to have some new ones soon!
    Sandi: Yes, I wish the weather were more autumn-like here. But I’m already forging ahead to warm, comforting food anyway!
    Maggie: Haha! Wouldn’t it be nice if it were that easy? 🙂

    Nicole, I don’t know what area of SD you’re in, but it’s still full on summer where I am! I don’t care, I’ll still make pumpkin pancakes, and pumpkin scones, and dream that one day maybe starbucks will make a pumpkin latte that doesn’t make me pucker because it’s so sweet. Seriously, how did they mess up such a wonderful thing?

    Julo: I know it’s still summer, but the nights and mornings have cooled just enough to make me dream of fall! I’ve never tried the pumpkin latte at Starbucks, I never stray from my regular: a tall latte, never iced. I don’t like overly sweet coffee concoctions!

    Nicole, you’re so right. It was down right foggy this morning. I loved it.

    I wouldn’t recommend it. It always sounds so good, but it’s so sugary I don’t even taste pumpkin. Blegck! I love Chai tea actually.

    In New York the air has just turned, perfect for fall coats, baking bread and all things pumpkin! This pancake recipe looks wonderful and I’m looking forward to some of the other recipes mentioned in the comments.

    Pumpkin is one of my all time favorite ingredients! I can’t wait to pick up a few sugar pumpkins and play around with new pumpkin recipes!

    I cannot let my daughter Laurel see this post! I love pumpkin pie—love it so much that I ask for that instead of cake for my birthday. But that’s pretty much it for me and pumpkin. Laurel, on the other hand, loves all things pumpkin. Even Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte. I do have to say, though, the pancakes sound pretty delicious, Nicole. I may need to trot those out.

    This is such a great resource. Thanks! I love pumpkin sooo much that I dedicated an entire blog to the delicious squash!

    Your pumpkin pancake recipe is my ultimate favourite. I make it whenever I need some comfort food. I think, in fact, it was the entry I ever read on your blog – thank you!
