The first day of Fall just around the corner, pumpkin recipes are a popular trend among food bloggers right now. It is amazing what ingredients are paired with pumpkin. Keeping with the trend, this weeks shopping alert will include awesome pumpkin products and recipes finds as well.  A creative pumpkin appetizer that screams fall flavor, Parmesan Pasta Crackers with Pumpkin and Cauliflower, was found on Foodalogue, one of my favorite food blogs. Joan’s culinary and creative talent never ceases to amaze me!

My dear foodie friend Catherine, author of The Living Gourmet, shared her spicy Pumpkin – Tomato soup. Tomato soup recalls fond childhood memories for many. With the addition of pumpkin, I  classify this one as a childhood favorite for adults.

Another classic recipe with a pumpkin twist is this Pumpkin Macaroni & Cheese. The recipe originated from cooking light and includes 2 cups of pumpkin or squash and a crumble topping. 

The breads, muffins, and sweets category proved to be swoon worthy and oh my gosh there was already an abundance of awesome recipes available. My top recipe finds include Dinner, Dishes, and Dessert who offered up a lovely Pumpkin Bread from the food network while Joelen of What’s cooking Chicago served up beautiful Glazed Pumpkin Cranberry Scones. Finally, Mommy’s Kitchen share these yummy Butterscotch Pumpkin Muffins {W/Cream Cheese Frosting}. I have to admit the Glazed Pumpkin Cranberry Scones is my favorite of the pumpkin baking recipes and one I will definitely attempt!
