Our posts for this week’s edition of It’s Tasty Tuesday all feature some of our favorite pumpkin recipes. If you’ve been thinking of a pumpkin as a vegetable, well it’s time you got it straight. A pumpkin is technically a fruit because it is a product of the seed-bearing structure of flowering plants; it develops from the blossom.
According to the Huffington Post, “the pumpkin is more accurately classified as a berry. A berry is defined as the fleshy fruit produced from one single ovary.” Now you can tell your kids, “eat your fruits,” even though you’ve put them on their plates as veggies. We’re smart that way.
Not to blow your mind or anything, but a strawberry isn’t a berry. Watermelons, avocados and bananas are though.
So, there ya’ have it. We don’t really care whether it’s a fruit or a vegetable just as long as we get to enjoy it’s deliciousness. So whether it’s pie or soup, stewed or candied, we’re all about enjoying the season affectionately known as Pumpkin Spice time!

Lacie Ring: Easy 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Pumpkins
And for your sweet tooth cravings, Lacie Ring of Easy Peasy Pleasy shares these cute as…well…pumpkins! Could they be any more precious?
It’s Fall Y’all! The weather may still be warm in my neck of the woods but I know it’s Fall just by looking at my yard…It’s covered with leaves.
I don’t know about y’all but in Arkansas it cools down for a couple days then heats right back up. Have you ever heard the expression “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a few minutes”? I believe that quote comes from Mark Twain and he was speaking of Arkansas. LOL! Ok, so maybe he wasn’t speaking of Arkansas but the saying definitely works for any of us in the southern states! Being that is officially fall, I am working on all kinds of Fall treats. One of those treats is these cute little peanut butter pumpkins. Read More
CINNAMON PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE: Keri Bucci
How can something sugar free and low carb be so good? Keri Bucci, our October Blogger of the Month, shows us how with her Cinnamon Pumpkin Cheesecake. Check it out on her blog, My Table of Three.
Fall is my favorite time of the year, it always has been. I look forward to Fall activities, pumpkin spice everything and most of all, cooler weather. We are starting to see some leaves falling to the ground here and there, but our daily temperatures are still in the mid to upper nineties. So typical for our weather, here in the south.
So it looks like I will be waiting a little longer for those cooler temps, but that doesn’t mean I have to wait on the pumpkin. Thank goodness, because I don’t think I could have passed up a slice of this cheesecake even if I had wanted to. READ MORE
