                                   3 Favorite Pumpkin Recipes

 I love when pumpkins start popping up all over grocery stores, which means the cooler crisp days of autumn are not far behind. From table decorations to jack-o-lanterns, pumpkins come in very handy to add to your fall festive flair; however, don’t just save the oversized squash for décor! Pumpkins are rich in nutrition, providing a host of vitamins and antioxidants in recipes from sweet to savory. Try my 3 favorite trim and terrific pumpkin recipes to really taste and smell the season! 


Pumpkin, Orange and Cranberry Muffin: The essence of the fall season embodied in one muffin.  

  • I made these muffins at an Our Lady of the Lake Regional Mecial Center event last year and everybody gobbled them up!
  • Rich in carotenoids, including beta-carotene, which are what give pumpkins their bright orange color, including beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant.
  • The perfect breakfast, snack or dessert for all ages

Pumpkin Cornbread: This hearty savory side goes well with chili now that the weather is getting cooler. 

  • Did you know that 1 cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin contains more than 200% of recommended daily intake of vitamin A – which is important for bone health, immune support and vision!
  • Canned pumpkin provides 7 grams of weight maintaining heart healthy fiber per cup.

Pumpkin Crawfish Soup: Our delectable Louisiana crawfish combined with autumn’s number one flavor. 

  • Hollow out a pumpkin for a fun festive way to serve this soup.
  • For a vegetarian pumpkin soup, use vegetable broth and leave out crawfish. 
  • Always be sure to look for Louisiana crawfish!
