It’s October which means we’re more than allowed to discuss all things pumpkin. Specifically pumpkin desserts and treats. I love how creative people get when it comes to pumpkin recipes. There are an insane amount! And I’m not even talking about just “pumpkin spice” related recipes because that’s a category of its own. I’m talkin’ all things sweet and pumpkiny. With or without the spice. I tried to get a selection for all you pumpkin lovers, whether it’s a delicious breakfast item or the perfect pumpkin treat for your Halloween party. You’ve got options. And they’re all good.
