The summer has come and gone, and as always, I am a little sad to see it go. But while I love the sunshine and spontaneous fun of summertime, I have a special place in my heart for fall. It may mean getting back to a regular schedule and the daily grind, but it also brings so much beauty. I love the chillier mornings and the bright, changing leaves. I love that I can wake up and put on a cozy sweater that I will need to peel off by lunchtime. I love the sense of community that the start of school brings. I love the smell of woodsmoke in the air as I walk home in the evening.
And I love the pumpkin recipes. Some people complain that bloggers have pumped the world too full of pumpkin recipes, that pumpkin recipes start coming earlier and earlier every year. I say stuff and nonsense! There can never be enough pumpkin recipes in the world. Never in a million years. Pumpkin is infinitely versatile, playing well with both savory and sweet flavors. And ever since that nameless pilgrim woman baked that first pumpkin pie, the big orange gourd has earned its hallowed reputation. Pumpkin is about fall and family and coming together over the holidays. Pumpkin rules. Don’t you go bashing my pumpkin!
So here’s a fun, new, sugar-free twist on pumpkin, bringing it together with another classic dessert. Tiramisu and pumpkin were made for each other. Enjoy the fall!
