Happy Halloween! It’s become pretty clear to me between talking to friends and family and reading blogs that I’m not the only one with a pumpkin obsession. Folks have been sending me pumpkin recipes and it’s been really fun (and tasty!) trying them out.
Recap: Recipes tested thus far:
Unfortunately, I’m just not able to make all of the pumpkin recipes that have come my way lately (plus my cooking was pretty bad this week since I was sick for the better part of it). For those of you who are still trying to satisfy your pumpkin cravings, here are some intriguing recipes which I haven’t tried out:

From my husband’s sister-in-law (my sister-in-law, in-law?): “Low Brow, Low Fat” Pumpkin Mousse: one can pumpkin, one container fat free, sugar free cool whip (I’m sure real whipped cream would also work), 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice, one box instant, sugar free vanilla pudding. Mix. Chill. Eat. Especially good with ginger snaps
In addition to my list, $5 Dinners just pointed me in the direction of a really amazing list of Pumpkin Recipes from Amy’s Finer Things. And Kevin from Closet Cooking posted a list of his top 10 Pumpkin Dishes. A Year of Slow Cooking is featuring a collection of Slow Cooker Fall Favorites, including several with pumpkin.
Again, I haven’t had the chance to sample the dishes above. I’m just sharing them with my pumpkin-obsessed audience! Enjoy–and please let me know if you try any of them out!
