Easy Pumpkin Perfection

We've been inundated with pumpkin flavored everything since the beginning of September. And, this is great news for those of us who are big fans of all things pumpkin.

One of the best ways to incorporate pumpkin into your life is to stock up on canned pumpkin puree. I like the organic version the best. Using the canned pumpkin saves hours of prep time that would otherwise be spent on baking and processing the gourd itself.

Here are a few quick and simple ways to use canned pumpkin for the ultimate in fall flavor.

Blend into a soup for a bright and healthy meal

Make pumpkin coffee creamer by mixing half and half, condensed milk, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice.

Mix into muffins

Make pumpkin cinnamon waffles or pancakes

Try making pumpkin curry

Mix with cream cheese for a savory bagel or bread spread

Moms, how else do you use pureed pumpkin during the fall season?

I really don't. Just pumpkin pie but all these other options sound delicious.

One year I made pumpkin gnocchi, and usually I make pumpkin bread.
