With cool weather also comes cravings for spiced desserts and these blondies are perfect for such cravings. They combine pumpkin with the flavors of chai tea and are topped with a glorious spiced cream cheese frosting. Kelsey calls them one of the most delicious things she's ever made.

Pumpkin Muffins

The name of this blog really resonates with me. My brother, sister and I used to be super picky eaters, and my mom had to get creative to get us to eat anything.

Baking pumpkin bread into muffins is genius! Muffins aren't intimidating. They're friendly and recognizable: a perfect way to get picky eaters to fall in love with this fall favorite.

Pumpkin Pie Bars

Pumpkin Pie Bars

Delicious pumpkin bars that are not as cakey as blondies and not as dense and fudgy as brownies. They taste just like pumpkin pie, minus the crust. Hope that these help to hold you over until Thanksgiving dinner!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Whoa! Cinnamon roll meets pumpkin and gets slathered in sweet cinnamon-sticky goodness. Rich, tender and flaky, and bursting with flavor, these could well be the ultimate fall pastry.

Bonus: These have less fat than traditional cinnamon rolls, as much of the fat was cut and replaced with pumpkin "making it even more decadent and gooey than a traditional cinnamon roll!"

Pumpkin Caramel Cupcakes

Pumpkin Caramel Cupcakes

Tired of putting pumpkin and chocolate together, Joelen sought out a different flavor combination and landed on pumpkin and caramel. Two classic fall flavors that, in my opinion, don't get to spend nearly enough time together!

And yes, those are pumpkin caramel cupcakes with pumpkin caramel icing. Divine!

Patty's Pumpkin Pudding Pie

Patty's Pumpkin Pudding Pie

from Pattycake

Today is Thanksgiving up in Canada, and it being the country I hail from, I get a bit nostalgic for the flavors and aromas that would always permeate the house on this particular day of the year. The highlight of Thanksgiving is of course the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. There would be turkey and stuffing with cranberry sauce, and plenty of side dishes, but it was always the dessert that had me hold back from getting completely stuffed during the main course. For you see, I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie. 

Now, pumpkin pie is a wonderful thing, but there's another option which my wonderful partner and wife came up with a few years ago that takes the pumpkin out of the pie, so to speak, and it totally rocks my world. She calls it Patty's Pumpkin Pudding, but it's essentially a crustless pumpkin pie that will make your nose swoon and your taste buds soar with delight. Seriously, this stuff is like pumpkin nirvana.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
