Last year I deemed October the month of Pumpkin All the Things! I made a bunch of different recipes, sweet and savory, and indulged in all the pumpkin goodness all month long. It was glorious! The problem was, I think I wore myself out on pumpkin. It’s now the end of October, and beyond adding a little pumpkin pie spice to a few protein shakes I have had zero pumpkiny foods this fall. Seriously, none! It’s not that a little pumpkin bread or a pumpkin spice latte doesn’t sound appetizing. It’s just that it doesn’t appeal to me enough to go through the effort of making it. Which, let’s be honest, is probably a good thing.
I’m not counting on that lasting too long though. I’m sure I’ll be craving all things pumpkin here sooner or later. And you can bet your ass I’ll be making my favorite paleo and AIP friendly pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving! It’s suuuuuper good. Dang, now I want pumpkin pie. Maybe I’ll have to go make one of these pumpkin recipes after all to tide me over. It is Halloween after all.
So in honor of Halloween (and the fact that it’s finally cooling off here in Central Texas), here is a pumpkin recipe roundup with all my favorite real food (gluten free, grain free, dairy free) pumpkin recipes….

The color of this Candy Corn Pudding is inspired by candy corn, not the flavor. Which is cool with me since I hate candy corn, but I love pineapple and mango which is what this pudding actually tastes like. Continue reading →
I have a lot of cookbooks. Like seriously a lot. They’re like grown up picture books where the pictures are all of food. Who wouldn’t like that, right? Typically when I get a new cookbook, I spend a while looking through it, drooling over the pictures and reading the recipes. I may make one or two of the recipes and then I typically won’t cook anything from it again. I definitely don’t see that happening with All American Paleo Table by Caroline Potter of Colorful Eats Nutrition. Continue reading →
Man, I didn’t mean to disappear on you guys. I’ve just been spending some much needed time these past few weeks with family, friends and my awesome husband, as well as just taking some time for myself. I was all over the place, driving from Texas to Washington to Oregon, back to Washington, to California, and then home to Texas. Continue reading →
