I've been craving the flavors (and temperatures!) of fall lately. Since I've had an extra can of pumpkin puree in the back of my cabinet since last autumn, I thought I'd rush the season a bit (as I am quite wont to do) by making some delectable pumpkin treats!
While searching the vast and extensive Tastespotting archives for pumpkin dishes, I bookmarked quite a few intriguing possibilities. But I was absolutely sold when I came to this recipe for Pumpkin Challah Bread. One of my absolute favorite flavors fused with one of my favorite baked goods - what more could a girl ask for?
I also was pretty smitten with this one - a Lump Crab and Pumpkin Flatbread. Though lump crab is readily available in these parts, it isn't quite in my budget. I ended up just using the pumpkin sauce portion of the recipe as a base and utilizing whatever else I had on hand for toppings, including swiss chard, oyster mushrooms, chicken breast, and Parmesan cheese. The outcome was pretty tasty and made for a unique way to satisfy my pumpkin cravings!
