Foodie Friday: Perfect Pumpkin Recipes & Cook's Tools For Fall

From now until after Thanksgiving, when it comes to food and home decor, it's all about the pumpkin. We carve them, cook them, and scent our homes with their fragrance. I hear there is a shortage of these pretty little pumpkins. Oh no!  Better get cooking now!

Sip. Savor. Repeat. Shop the NEW Wine & Cheese Collection from Le Creuset!

HERE: 21 Ways To Get Inspired

Spiced Pumpkin Souffles
Served with a bourbon sauce, this dessert couldn't be more festive for Fall!

Maple Pumpkin Martini
I wish I liked Vodka, because if I did, I would be sipping this chic concoction right now. Made with Vanilla Stolichnaya, maple pumpkin puree, half and half and more, it's not exactly figure friendly. Well, Boo! Who cares?

Pumpkin Spice Syrup
The pure taste of Fall. Use your imagination and blend this syrup in champagne, coffee, or a cocktail. Made in small batches without preservatives.

Chorizo Sage Mac and Cheese Baked In A Pumpkin
This is a must make for me. What an impressive looking comfort dish! The author tells us that the fragrant aroma of this is just the best welcome home for family and company.

Maple, Bacon, Pumpkin Tart
Made with puff pastry, this a sweet and savory dish that can be served any time of day. Watch a step by step video at

Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake
I never thought about chocolate and pumpkin as a delicious duo, but this recipe has me sold!

Pumpkin and Vermouth Risotto
What an interesting dish and it is certainly company worthy. Made with both Parmesan and Mascarpone cheeses, this is a sophisticated one pan dish.

Illume Autumnal Votive Set
Even if you aren't baking, your home can smell like a little lov'n from the oven. "Pumpkin Peppercorn: dark brown sugar and cinnamon spice are blended with creamy pumpkin puree and finished with notes of cassia root and warm vanilla sugar." Mmmmm!

 Toasted Coconut Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Like the author of this recipe, I love the smell of coffee, the idea of coffee, but I do not like the taste of coffee. Add a little something special like chocolate, hot cocoa, pumpkin pie spice, and more, I just may take a sip!

Pumpkin and Apple Spread
"Perfect for serving alongside cheeses or just piled high onto a cracker with some crème fraîche and fresh thyme leaves."  I plan to keep this spread made all season long for last minute gatherings.

Classic Pecan Pumpkin Butter Pie
I am not much of a purist, and the classic Pumpkin Pie just bores me to death. This recipe calls for Muirhead pecan pumpkin butter, which sounds interesting. Between that and the two sticks of butter in the crust, this is one rich pie that gets major style points.

Chorizo, Pumpkin, and Zucchini Frittata
This is your new brunch staple. The spiciness of the sausage is balanced with the sweetness of the pumpkin.  So good!

Hand Held Carving Set
If you really want to impress the kiddos, get this set! It's American made of white birch and carbon steel. Surely it will create a pro pumpkin.

Pumpkin Pie Ice cream with Coconut Cream & Roasted Almonds {Gluten Free}
Could anything be better for topping this season's pecan and pumpkin pies? Made with half coconut sugar and half Sukrin Gold, a natural sweetener.

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes With Cranberry Syrup
Plain pancakes are boring. Shouldn't they be fluffy and festive, like these? This recipe checks all of my required boxes. Give it a try.

Pumpkin Empanadas
 Here's a little something different. This recipe turns a savory staple into a sweet treat. What a pocket of pumpkin goodness!

Pumpkin Lovers Lasagna
This meatless recipe (though it does call for chicken stock) has just the best list of ingredients! Think sage, Fontina, Gouda, escarole, nutmeg and more. Go ahead, serve the unexpected.

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie
Now we're talking! The crust is made from chocolate wafers, so no need to worry about pie crust fails. This is a beautiful pie!

Boozy Pumpkin Milkshakes
Oh my! This year, you may want to just skip the pie and go straight for this shake. It calls for Vodka, but I would switch that out for rum, Yum!

Pumpkin Pie Stuffed Waffles
Oh you guys! How yummy does refrigerated cinnamon rolls "waffled" and stuffed with cream cheese and pumpkin sound? I have a feeling that this will be a fave of Mr. Shop This.

Pumpkin Spice Caramel Crisp
Sure you could try to make this yourself, but why would you when you can buy it fresh and handmade? I've had it, it is fabulous! Makes a great gift to send for Halloween.
