Planning for Pumpkin Food Paradise: 3 Simple Recipes

What to do with all that goo? Pumpkin goo, that is. After carving a pumpkin, you’re left with a heaping mess of membrane and seeds. Most people throw them away. Alas, they can be used for tasty treats! We’ve scoured the net over (actually, just allrecipes.com) for some easy recipes that use pumpkin or pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins All Recipes

So you like to bake? These Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins are a great start to plenty of pumpkin-filled projects! Easy ingredients like cream cheese, eggs, and your basic baking items (vanilla extract, sugar, flour, etc.) mean you probably already have a majority of these ingredients in your pantry. What’s better, this recipe includes a homemade streusel frosting, including crunchy pecans and comforting cinnamon. If you plan on serving this at a party or some function, consider cooking them in Teacupcake molds for a unique presence and some extra compliments.

Pumpkin Gingerbread
Maybe pumpkin isn’t enough holiday spirit for you. Why not try Pumpkin Gingerbread? Imagine the intoxicating aromas of both pumpkin and gingerbread throughout your humble home, the feeling of holidays all around, all warm and cozy. Plus, it sure beats fruit cake! And when you use these Heart-shaped Measuring Spoons, the love you filled it with will be that much more obvious. (Hey, we can be cheesy from time to time!)

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
And for those pumpkin seeds, we have a bath of Worcestershire sauce, butter, and seasoned salt– that’s it! This recipe for Toasted Pumpkin Seeds could not be easier and oh-so-addictive! Just be ready to practice some self-discipline because, trust me, it’s gonna be a challenge to keep from eating them all in one sitting! As a distraction, you could read the fun facts on this Equal Measure Measuring Cup. For example, you’ll need as many pumpkin seeds for this recipe as 20,000 grains of rice! See? A fun fact for some delayed gratification!

Think you’ve got an even tastier, even easier pumpkin recipe? We’re all ears!

    Pumpkin is becoming one of my favorite flavors to go with anything and everything. But I have to say that Pumpkin pie along side a nice hot cup of pumpkin latte is definitely at the top of my treats list.

    When we were done with our pumpkin this year, me made a loaf and toasted up the seeds. Usually we just toast with plain old salt, but that recipe sounds really yummy!
