Pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin rolls, pumpkin bread, pumpkin everything!  Every year I look forward to fall, not only for all the candies of Halloween or the gatherings of Thanksgiving, but for pumpkin! Last week, I shared with you a collection of autumn desserts and drinks.  This week, I’m focusing on pumpkin.

There is a whole world of pumpkin dishes besides the usual pumpkin pie.  Get ready to expand your pumpkin recipe collection!


Pumpkin cupcakes and muffins are delicious on their own.  Lindsay of Life, Love and Sugar takes it the next level with her delectable pumpkin cupcake topped with maple cinnamon cream cheese icing.


My favorite part of carving pumpkins is gathering all the seeds for future snacks!  Toasted pumpkin seeds are a terrific afternoon pick me up.  I didn’t know it could get any better until I saw this roasted pumpkin seed hummus by Tieghan of Half Baked Harvest.


Wow, talk about taking fall breakfast to the extreme.  I would love to wake up to a fresh batch of pumpkin spice bagels by Jennifer of Seasons and Suppers.  Can you image how these smell baking in the oven?!

This pumpkin macaroni and cheese by Pamela of Brooklyn Farm Girl is sure to warm you on any chilly autumn night.  It’s also a great way to sneak a little extra fiber into your diet.


There are countless recipes for pumpkin bread all over the internet.  Here’s a tasty gluten-free pumpkin loaf by Henry Happened food contributor Meg van der Kruik.  With holiday parties and social gatherings galore coming soon, it’s a good idea to have gluten-free options for those with gluten intolerance.


Here’s a great gluten-free and nut-free dessert!  Look at this festive pumpkin flan by Cheryl of This Mama Cooks.  I love serving desserts in little ramekins because they are already perfectly portioned out for guests.


Serving food in edible vessels is such an awesome idea!  This stuffed pumpkin by Dine & Dish is the perfect dish to impress any dinner guest.  I’m totally recreating this for Thanksgiving.
