Do you love all things pumpkin?

Once fall time hits- it is hard to avoid the pumpkin craze that happens everywhere. But for good reason! When I think pumpkin I think all things food, family, fun, and traditions!

Because the weather is cooling down I also enjoying incorporating pumpkin into my meal planning each week. I used to think that the only thing I could make with pumpkin was soup or cookies- but I was mistaken!

There are SO many yummy dinner recipes out there using pumpkin- and most are super easy to make, too!

Though I do recommend running to the store and stocking up. In my experience, the cans of pumpkin puree run out fast.

Unless, of course, you are planning to make your own homemade pumpkin puree. I’ve never done this, but I think it would be really fun to do.

We’ve shared a couple of our favorites over the years including the famous Dinner in a Pumpkin.

Dinner in a pumpkin

This meal is a festive holiday favorite! Have you tried it, yet? If not, I highly recommend you add it to your to-do list this season. It is a great recipe to get your kids involved in (they can help clean out the pumpkin) and I guarantee it will be a hit at any party or gathering.

We have also perfected our Creamy Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce.

It is so simple and uses ingredients you probably have on hand. It’s delicious paired with crusty garlic bread or a light caesar salad. You can add chicken to make it a little heartier, but it also works great as a purely vegetarian dish. This is one of our family’s most favorite recipes, and it’s definitely perfect this time of year.

Whether you are wanting breakfast for dinner, something light, or something more hearty- we have rounded up some of the best pumpkin dinner recipes out there.

Get cooking and enjoy! Let us know what your favorite recipes are!
