Pumpkin Roundup

It’s time to whip up all those pumpkin treats you’ve been longing for all summer long! Ahhhh…pumpkin season has arrived! This is my favorite season to bake. Pumpkin anything and everything are always on my list. Pumpkin bread, scones, pancakes, cakes, soup, muffins, cookies…the list goes on and on! Just thinking about pumpkin makes my mouth water! :) Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, every fall we would go to the Circleville Pumpkin Show. A whole festival dedicated to my favorite fall fruit! It was one of my favorite things about fall. We would make our way around the giant pumpkins weighing over 1,600 pounds, 14 feet wide pumpkin pies, parades, marching bands and of course every pumpkin food you could think of! Since moving to Peoria, I was surprised to learn that I lived very close to Morton, Illinois-the Pumpkin Capital of the World! Morton is home of Nestle/Libby’s pumpkin packing plant. According to the University of Illinois, 90 percent of the pumpkins grown in the United States are raised within a 90-mile radius of Peoria, Illinois. About 5,000 acres of the farm land is devoted to producing the pumpkins used for Libby’s Pumpkin. With my love of anything pumpkin, I am beginning to think that Peoria is a great place for me to be! ;) I was super excited to hear that the annual Morton Pumpkin Festival starts today and runs through Saturday. I know where we will be this weekend! ;)

I want to share with you some of my favorite pumpkin recipes that I posted last fall before I start with a new round of pumpkin recipes. Do you love Pumpkin recipes as much as I do?

    Pumpkins EVERYWHERE!! My mouth is watering :) By the way…I’m going to a “fall bbq” next week and I was asked to bring something sweet. Problem is…I do not currently have an oven in my little “bachelorette” pad. Any suggestions of a no bake treat that would be a sure fire hit to bring?

    Oh, you must go to the Morton Pumpkin Festival! I am originally from Washington, IL (just moved to Ohio a little over a year ago.) We would go every year! The pumpkin pancakes on Saturday morning are delicious – just have to get there early to avoid waiting in line for an hour plus. Also, the pumpkin donuts are fantastic, and the pumpkin ice cream. And the pumpkin chili. Heh. I guess everything.

    My husband & I are actually going home to visit this weekend for a 40th anniversary party and I am so glad it coincides with the Pumpkin fest! I will be running the 10km Saturday morning. :)

      Oh I had forgotten about pumpkin chili! I made some last year. Thanks for the reminder.

    Thank you for sharing all of these wonderful pumpkin recipes! I will be making the pancakes this Saturday in honor of the pumpkin festival; this way I don’t have to stand in line! I absolutely LOVE the Morton pumpkin festival! My family is from East Peoria, IL and I have been going to the festival since I was a little girl =) I am a junior at the University of Illinois and I have gone home every year, including this one, for it. I need my yearly fix of pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin chili! I hope you have a wonderful time there this weekend! Happy Pumpkin-ing!
