Friday Shout-Out: Pumpkin and a New Blog HopPosted on Oct 7, 2011 | 40 comments
Yeah, you love my MS Paint pumpkin thumbnail. I had a feeling… I know I’ve slacked on the Friday Shout-Out for two weeks, but it’s back! (ok, fair warning: we’re skipping next week too as I’ll be on vacation…but then we’re back for good). And we’re better than ever. I’ve been strict in the past by selecting only recipes published on blogs that week, but that always meant I was leaving out so many incredible recipes and blogs! So this week I’m adding a new feature: a blog hop linky party! Why didn’t I think of that before?? So I will shout-out some awesome recipes around a theme from that week and then you can add all of your awesome recipes from whenever.
With the start of Fall I’ve been seeing a ton of inspiring pumpkin recipes. Although it’s still 90 degrees in Israel I’m trying my best to get into the Fall spirit and these recipes help. Be sure to check out these amazing recipes and blogs, then submit your own favorite pumpkin recipes using the linky tool below!
My close friend and fellow Be’er Sheva-based food blogger Beth Michelle has a way with pumpkin (Beth I hope you’ll submit some more of your awesome pumpkin recipes to the linky party). This week she presents Pumpkin Challah – yes you heard me right! Pumpkin Challah. I’ve read that you should never mess with your mother-in-law’s recipes, but this is a clear exception. And just last week she shared (both on her blog and with me personally – I have a jar in my fridge!) Pumpkin Spice Caramel Sauce. I know you want some.
You remember Georgette from Chocolate and Figs right? She did an amazing guest post for me over the summer. Well this week she made her very first gluten free dessert and it looks phenomenal: Gluten Free Pumpkin Cake. The recipe comes from a fabulous-looking gf cookbook (she just hosted a giveaway with five of them to offer!). I’ve never done any gluten free baking either, but this looks like the perfect place to start. Also, I’ve got a guest post up on her blog today on food photography so go check it out!
I am a huge fan of Ewa’s recipes over at beautiful food blog Delishhh and this recipe immediately caught my eye: Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread. My all time favorite pumpkin recipe happens to be my mother-in-law’s pumpkin chocolate chip mini muffins so this recipe struck an immediate chord. And hers has the added bonus of a spiced glaze. Yup. She also has an awesome list of pumpkin recipes to check out. Go on. Get over there.
I’m a fairly recent convert to the exquisite food blog Not Rachael Ray, and I’m not sure what took me so long! This recipe isn’t a pumpkin recipe per se, but how could I not include her homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice? I knew you’d like it. It’s the perfect addition to all of these great pumpkin recipes. For more pumpkin love check out her adorable post from Sunday with photos from her family trip to a pumpkin patch. If that doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
I have what seems like a million pull-apart breads saved on my Pinterest “sweet tooth” board (can we say obsessed?) but I think this is the one I’m going to start with: Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread with a Buttered Vanilla Glaze from The Farm Girl. This was actually my first introduction to The Farm Girl and I am totally hooked. Stop by and you’ll see what I mean (Pizza Pancakes people. Think about it.)
Two Peas and Their Pod needs no introduction and it’s no surprise that they’ve been tempting me again and again with incredible pumpkin recipes. This week came the ultimate: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars. They look ooey and gooey, somewhere between a brownie and cookie, and just pure heaven. As if that’s not enough, last week they posted Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes! I know!
Your turn! Please link up any pumpkin recipe – savory or sweet – that you’ve posted on your blog. Limit three per person. If you link up here please add a line somewhere in your post linking back! And this is a blog hop, after all, so be sure to hop around and see all the other amazing pumpkin recipes! Thanks 🙂
