Friday Shout-Out: Pumpkin and a New Blog Hop

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 πŸ™‚

  1. Thanks again for including me! I added on my recipe from today!

  2. LOL, yes I do love the MS paint thumbnail! It’s the finishing touch:) Thanks for hosting this – I love pumpkin and can’t wait to see what everybody else comes up with.

    • Haha thanks!! I realized I didn’t have any photos (somehow!) of pumpkins so just made my own… I’m so happy you submitted, thanks! I love pumpkin too.

  3. I love pumpkin season! Just picked an almost 50 lb. pumpkin from my garden last night (possible frost overnight)! Everything looks great! Thanks for letting me link.

  4. I love your paint pumpkin! The food blogosphere lacks these kinds of things. Pumpkins are totally in season here, and a few months ago, for the first time ever, I saw American-style pumpkins in the market (here it’s summer squash, of course). Does that not totally put you in pumpkin mood?

    • Haha thanks!! It does lack these kinds of things – maybe for good reason? Ha. I know I love that it’s pumpkin and squash season! American-style pumpkins?! So exciting.

  5. You have some awesome recipes here – I was never a huge fan of pumpkin growing up but something happened a few years ago and now i LOVE IT. I have to try some of these. Pumpkin Challah??? WOW. Thanks again for including me in your write up – love reading your blog! I added another one to your linky that is awesome which is Pumpkin Brownies – always a huge hit.

    • So glad you like pumpkin now! Isn’t it the best? Growing up we really only ate pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving (which I always loved) but that was our pumpkin quota for the year. Now I can’t get enough! So glad you linked up another recipe πŸ™‚

  6. There are some great recipes here for fall eating! I just enjoy the different seasons and what each has to offer. Fall is wonderful with all the stews, squashes, baked goods, and comfort foods. The link-up is a great idea! Have a lovely weekend!

    • I know, I can’t wait to go through everyone’s links and see all these great pumpkin recipes! Fall really is wonderful. Thanks for linking up and have a great weekend!

  7. I live in a farm area of Bucks County and the pumpkins are growing everywhere. My son even has a little pumpkin patch in his back yard. Each of his kids will have a pumpkin to decorate. Love the collection of pumpkin recipes,especially the pumpkin challah.. Thanks for hosting.

  8. Tomorrow I’ll post a pumpkin recipe! Perfect timing, my friend:)

  9. Oh wow!!! What an amazing round up. Wish I could get my hands on pumpkin to cook or bake something. πŸ™

  10. Best round up ever as I am a pumpkin addict! Thanks for including the challah πŸ™‚ I wish I had some of it leftover. Craving….
    All these recipes look SO good. I am anxiously awaiting your first pumpkin recipe of the season!

    • So happy to include your challah – people are loving it! (And it was delicious). I know I need to get on the pumpkin recipe thing…!!

  11. So many delicious pumpkin recipes and ideas. I too fell in love with the pumpkin pull aparts idea.

  12. I LOVE the idea of this blog hop! I’ve not actually got round to posting any pumpkin recipes this year, but am loving reading through all the others up here and finding fabulous new blogs πŸ™‚ Great post!

    • Thanks!! I know I realized that I haven’t posted any pumpkin recipes this year either! We need to get on that πŸ™‚

  13. Hi Katherine, I’m visiting you from Roti and Rice. I’ve linked my Pumpkin Pie Soup to your fun Fall Pumpkin Blog Hop and a=have added a link back to your site. Thanks for hosting!

  14. So much delicious inspiration here! I think I have a pumpkin muffin scheduled to post this week…I hope to share it here, too πŸ™‚

    • I know I am loving all the pumpkin-y inspiration! Oooh pumpkin muffins sound yum, I do hope you share them here! πŸ™‚

  15. OOOh…I want in! I have my SRC choice semi-done. I’m conremplating what I can do to ‘pumpkinize’ it! Everyone’s submissions look fanrastic. What a talented bunch!

    • Hahaha I love your enthusiasm!! Mmm pumpkinized SRC – that would be a fun twist on things if we all had to either choose a pumpkin recipe or “pumpkinize” it! It is a talented bunch, isn’t it?

  16. It is a old recipe, but still my favorite: butternut squash ravioli. Hope you enjoy it!

  17. Katherine, this is such a nice round-up for pumpkin lovers! Everyone makes good stuff! I am loving your Friday blog hop – this is such a great idea although it might be a lot of work for you… thanks for doing this!

    • Thank you Nami!! I love looking at everyone’s great recipes. I’m glad you like the idea! It’s really not a lot of work at all, just some html on the page that allows people to enter their urls.

  18. Fun, Katherine! Thanks for letting me know about the blog hop, i linked up my bars!

  19. Nice line up of links here. I really wish I was somewhere near a pumpkin patch! Picking your own would be so much fun. I am ready to bake with pumpkin now-thanks for sharing.
