Perfect pumpkin recipes for autumn

Perfect pumpkin recipes for autumn | Hello! Hooray!

Pumpkin season is well and truly here, and I thought it would be fun to put together a selection of perfect pumpkin recipes for autumn! I’ve been taking part in #ColourMyEveryDay with the lovely Joanna from Adventures and Tea Parties, and today’s prompt is ‘food’. I’ve been a little quiet over on my blog recently, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to write a post and share some of the pumpkin recipes from the archives! I love pumpkin as it’s such a versatile ingredient, working in savoury and sweet dishes. So here’s a selection of a few recipes I’ve enjoyed making.


Pumpkin lemon and poppy seed loaf
