It's that time of year when all we can think of is pumpkin and everything coming out of our kitchens is spiked with pumpkin or pumpkin spice.  Am I right?  Somehow despite our careful budgeting, I always leave the grocery store with a can of pumpkin, even if it isn't on the list.  Here are some of my favorite ways to use pumpkin:

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

This may be the very best way to use a can of pumpkin.  It's my favorite anyhow.  If you recall, making cinnamon rolls is on my Fall Bucket List so these will be baking in my kitchen very soon!

Pumpkin Smoothie
A smoothie may be an unexpected place to find pumpkin, but I promise you it is delicious!  A great way to squeeze in some veggies in the morning!

Pumpkin Scones
This is the perfect treat to go with a hot cup of decaf coffee in the mid-morning! Bake a batch and invite a friend over.  I promise they will love you forever!

Pumpkin Fettuccini
So often we make pumpkin sweet, but it works so well in a savory dinner too!  This meal is warm and comforting for a cold Autumn evening.

Pumpkin Banana Overnight Oats
I have too many favorite ways to use pumpkin, but this one tops the list.  Right now I love breakfast that I don't have to think about in the morning.  This one is already made for you.  That is if you can leave it alone in the fridge overnight without eating it for dessert first!

Pumpkin Spice Donuts
Mini donuts are so much fun!  And these pumpkin spice ones donut not disappoint!  I love these for breakfast, snack or dessert!

There are so many more ways to use pumpkin, and these are just some of my favorites.  Do a quick pumpkin search on my recipe page and you'll find nearly 30 ways to use pumpkin, both savory and sweet.  Enjoy the fall and enjoy your pumpkin!
