Happy October! Am I the only one that can NOT believe it is already October? It seems like time is speeding by at break neck speed. Oh well…what can you do? October is one of my favorite months. I love Halloween, and football and seeing all my friends at our annual work conference. Oh and I love everything pumpkin. This year I AM going to make some pumpkin recipes even though my family doesn’t quite share my love for it. Over to Pinterest I ran to find recipes to try.
The other day I absolutely HAD to have a pumpkin cream cheese muffin. I have eaten these in the past from Starbucks but, honestly, I think their baked goods have gone down hill in the last few years. These days they are always cold and gummy. I broke down and bought one anyway and it was quite good….not as good as in past years but still good. I think these will be better….

And look at this one…..Pull Apart Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Bread. It looks a bit complicated for me but I just may try it. Anyone want to come over & bake it for me??? Anybody?
As I mentioned before…pumpkin and cream cheese are a match made in heaven. Which I guess is what makes these dessert bars look so darn heavenly.
And last but not least…..if you buy too much pumpkin and get tired of pumpkin-o-rama…..make pumpkin butter! We love apple butter around our house and I bet pumpkin butter would be just as yummy. Like pumpkin pie on toast!
