all things pumpkin

I will shamelessly admit it. Once Labor Day hits here in the States, signifying the traditional end to summer, I'm all about the pumpkin. We always were growing up, so I have an excuse - I blame my mother. Gladly.

First up comes the Spiced Pumpkin candle from Yankee. They usually send me a coupon right about now, so I grab my fave for the Christmas season as well...

And as I mentioned before - I love me a good pumpkin spice frappe. Which brings me to this:
A recipe for homemade pumpkin spice syrup. To make your own latte/iced coffee. No Way. So trying this!!

And you'll find a whole series of posts {one for at least every year I've been blogging} devoted to our beloved pumpkin swirl cheesecake that makes an appearance each year at Thanksgiving.
Last year I added pumpkin pancakes to the repertoire..

This year I've pinned a few new ones to try.

Pumpkin Butter:

Or this Pumpkin Butter. Apparently the idea really appeals to me?:

The Great Pumpkin Dessert:
Teeny picture which I shall have to remedy when I make it myself!

Anyway - happy to know that I'm already passing this Autumn tradition on - as we were strolling the aisles at Whole Food last week - E got all excited when he spied a can on the shelf! And I had to promise to start making our pumpkin favorites... so it begins!

Oh yum. You are making me so hungry for pumpkin pancakes. I LOVE those and made a bunch last year, too. Right now, though, we're deep in apples and I've made apple butter (so yummy, and a lower-sugar recipe than some I've seen) and now applesauce. You'll have to let me know how that pumpkin butter tastes if you make it :D
