When I think of fall, I automatically think of pumpkin everything. From pumpkin bread to pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin carving and more, every stage of fall can be represented by pumpkins.


During fall, you’ve gotta utilize pumpkins for everything: decor for both Thanksgiving and Halloween, roasting the seeds, and most importantly, using the pumpkin flesh for food.

I love pumpkin everything. Pumpkin pie has always been my favorite pie, and I bake as many pumpkin-flavored goods as I can during this time of year.

You’ve heard of pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread, but a little-known pumpkin delicacy that you’ve just got to get your hands on is pumpkin cake.
