It finally feels like fall!!!! I couldn’t be happier about this because I am so over the heat and humidity. I used to love the summer, and I still do overall, but the older I get, the more I enjoy the cool and cold weather.
For me, learning how to create a feeling of hygge (coziness) in my home has been so helpful to transform me from someone who loathes winter to someone who eagerly anticipates its arrival each year.
Honestly, y’all, a lot of it is simply learning how to dress warmly! Gone are the silly teenage years of wearing t-shirts and flip-flops in the snow. Now I’m all about waterproof boots and warm scarves.
Embracing seasonal eating is another fun way to welcome the changing of the seasons. Right now, that means PUMPKIN IN ALL THE THINGS! I’m not just talking about pie on turkey day, but pumpkin in breakfast foods, snacks, treats, and even dinners!
If you are all about the pumpkin right now, or maybe simply needing a little inspiration to change things up and try something new, I put together eight pumpkin recipes on my blog.
I’ve got you covered for breakfast, dinners, snacks, and desserts! (Maybe not all in one week, though).
Check out this video to see how easily you can make your own pumpkin puree in your Instant Pot. Don’t worry if you’d just rather buy the cans…it’s what I usually do too.
