In celebration of October and all things pumpkin, I've put together this little collection of pumpkin recipes to make your life just a little bit easier. I highly suggest you try each and every one of them. After all, you can't ever have too much pumpkin, right? What's the worst that could happen? You turn into a big 'ol jack-o-lantern, Violet Beauregarde style? Admit it, that would be pretty cool.

If you're not into the coconut-spiciness of the other pumpkin soup, this is a super easy, basic pumpkin soup recipe. And if you're feeling creative, this soup is an excellent blank canvas for all sorts of delicious add-ins! (black beans, cauliflower, hot sauce, chipotle, whatever)
...And if you missed these two gems couple weeks ago:
If you can't find pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice blend at your local grocery, it's SUPER easy to mix up at home.
