My 15 Best Pumpkin Recipes

10.07.14 by Jackie

I haven't never taken baby Aria to a pumpkin patch yet. I'm planning on taking her soon. I'm sure she will enjoy the scent of fresh straw and the endless plot of pumpkins. I wonder what type of pumpkin she will select. We'll probably pick many so we can turn them into delicious fresh pies, pancakes and sweet bread for the upcoming holidays. In the meantime, I've gathered a list of savory dishes flavored with the deep-orange squash plant. I hope you will find plenty of inspiration in this post. 


I hope Aria has a lot of fun. I heard our local pumpkin patch has an inflatable bounce house and slide; that alone will probably amaze her. Even though the weather seems very warm these days in the Bay Area, summer is gone and fall is definitely in the air.

Roasted Butternut Squash Galette Recipe Recipe

When you feel like improvising, consider making a galette. It doesn't have to look perfect, and it's basically a combination of dough and filling. It's easy to modify, easy to adapt.

I prepared a flaky, buttery dough and roasted a butternut squash. Then I created a large disk, placed the flavorful butternut squash filling in the center and made the free-form tart. 

Cooking doesn't have to look perfect. The more rustic this savory tart appears, the better; starting everything from scratch only adds to the charm of the homemade meal. Plus, it's not very labor-intensive and I find rolling the dough very de-stressing. So if you want to free your mind in the evening, just do as I do and mix up some dough!
