When it comes to cooking, Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! I LOVE all things pumpkin! Here are 5 of my favorite Pumpkin Recipes that are sure to get you in the mood for Fall and for Thanksgiving that is just around the corner!

Pumpkin Butter

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter - Detours in Life

 This is a super easy way to prepare Pumpkin Butter – in the Crock Pot! Pumpkin Butter is one of my favorites on toast or warm biscuits. Yummy!

Pumpkin Bread


 One of my all time favorites for Fall – Pumpkin Bread! This recipe is super easy and makes two loaves – one for now and one to freeze for later if you have the will power! This is a recipe that my family has been fixing since I was a little girl and it always reminds me of home.

Ranny’s Amazing Pumpkin Pie

Ranny's Amazing Pumpkin Pie - Detours in Life

 Another family recipe, my Grandmother would fix this every year for both my birthday and for Thanksgiving. It is the ONLY type of Pumpkin Pie that I will eat. It is not baked, but prepared in a double boiler and then refrigerated. It is smooth, creamy, and oh so yummy!

Pumpkin Dump Cake

This pumpkin dump cake dessert can be made so easily! All it takes is a few ingredients, a cake mix, and the baking time! Super simple and a great dessert to take for a party or potluck!

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cheesecake - Detours in Life

I never thought of having my two favorites combine: pumpkin and cheesecake, until I went to the Cheesecake Factory last year. Pumpkin Cheesecake is a new favorite of mine! I set out to find a recipe that would mimic that taste and this is it! The perfect combo of cheesecake and pumpkin and taste a lot like my Ranny’s Pumpkin Pie as far as flavor. It is so good!
