5 not-so-basic Pumpkin Recipes

It’s finally Fall, and we all know what that means, PUMPKIN SEASON!! It is officially acceptable to eat pumpkin for every other meal, and I am in heaven. I could eat pumpkin for every single meal and not get bored. With that being said, I honestly am not a huge fan of the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. I have been eating pumpkin for so long, drinking it just doesn’t feel right.

Below are five recipes that aren’t pumpkin spice so you don’t have to worry about being judged when enjoying my favorite Fall food (besides candy corn).

1. Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

These are the perfect version of a normal cheesecake that will get you in the Fall mood. It is the perfect combination of creamy, sweet, and Fall flavors. The recipe can be found here.

2. Cream Cheese Stuffed Pumpkin Dinner Rolls


I bet you have never heard of this before, unless you are like me and spend half of their day watching food videos on Facebook. . .And on that note, get a life and stop procrastinating all your adulting decisions (I mean it out of the kindness of my heart).  Find your new favorite Thanksgiving rolls here.

Ok, so I know how this sounds. I mean, honestly, who has ever heard of shrimp and pumpkin together in the same dish. Believe it or not, however, this is actually a really popular Brazilian dish. If you are like me and feel the need to test out this funky dish, you can find the recipe for it here.

5. Pumpkin Sugar Cookies with Vanilla Glaze
