Confession: I don’t even like pumpkin-flavored things that much. I like pumpkin, but I don’t love it. I think that it’s just OK.
Yet every Fall I get the urge to bake pumpkin-y things. I think it’s mostly just because pumpkins are everywhere this time of year. Especially at places like Trader Joe’s where, from October through November, almost every item they sell suddenly contains some form of pumpkin. Pumpkin butter, pumpkin pancake mix, pumpkin beer, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin tofu, pumpkin hummus, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin pizza, pumpkin pumpkin… everything is pumpkin!
