I admit that I absolutely love pumpkin anything.

And, then there is all of the other pumpkin stuff that I love…

I usually make my own whole wheat pancakes, but when I found this at Trader Joe’s, I had to try it out.

Oh my goodness, these were delish.


I love muffins!  These pumpkin muffins are made with freshly ground whole wheat.    They are a little heavy, but oh so tasty.

pumpkin muffins yes

Of course, you can’t have the muffins without a good hot cup of coffee.  Right??

Green Mountain Coffee is one of my all time favorites.  Their pumpkin spice is seasonal, so I stock up when they have it available.

Pumpkin Spice coffee, homemade pumpkin muffins, and homemade apple butter.  OH MY!


One more look at this beautiful pumpkin and my gorgeous hydrangeas.

Add a pumpkin candle, and I am one happy lady.

See what I mean.  Pumpkin anything….

Blessings everyone.

And you've inspired me to bring MY greenish pumpkin inside for decoration!

Hi Amy,
I am totally with you, I love everything pumpkin!!! My sister-in-law made a homemade pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting the other night and it was to die for! I wanted to eat the whole thing myself.:)
Your photos are simply beautiful, I love the hydrangeas and your blue-gray pumpkin.
Hope you have a glorious day!

I love pumpkin too! Pumpkin pie was always one of my very favorite Fall treats. Too bad I am not eating sugar anymore! Everything looks wonderful-from the pancake mix to the muffins. I thought at first you said the Pumpkin Spice coffee was sensual...and then went back and re-read to see you said SEASONAL! Hmmmm...maybe both?!;>)

Hope your week is wonderful. I miss seeing you around but know how busy you are! xo Diana

I so love pumpkin anything too! We don't have Trader Joes here in Utah, do they sell on line by any chance? I would love to try the pumpkin pancake mix.

Diane said...

Me too! I'm making pumpkin whole wheat scones later this afternoon!

Pumpkin is a great thing to cook with. It makes everything so moist.

Love your pumpkin display.

Becky C said...

Oh I am going to be in Pumpkin Heaven while I'm there, aren't I? I'm sure you are planning a pumpkin pancake breakfast at least one morning?? Right? LOL
Sounds so delicious and I can just smell it from here :) Your pumpkin looks fabulous with the hydrangeas, Amy!
Tomorrow is the day!!!!

Robin said...

I have to admit I'm just starting to like pumpkin things. I love pumpkin bread but pie is a too pumpkin'y for me. I try every Thanksgiving though.

Jenni said...

Hello Amy! I hope your day is going well so far! :) Those pancakes look AMAZING! And pumpkin muffins are so good! {Add a cup of hot coffee to it, and it is perfection!} Your home looks gorgeous, by the way! Green pumpkins are so pretty! :)


Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

I love everything pumpkin. Makes me salivate for my mother's pumpkin roll we have for Thanksgiving!!!!!

Cheryl said...

Pumpkin anything? YES! Me too!

Just came over from "A Pocketful of Blue"...and enjoyed nosing around your bloggy space a bit. "All Things Home" is quite charming! (Among other things, I ab.so.lute.ly love the feed bag on the front door!)

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Now those pancakes look soooo good!!! I love pumpkin too!!! I made a pumpkin dip for our tailgate last Saturday and it was a BIG hit.


Debbie said...

I am another one who loves anything pumpkin. It might possibly be my favorite taste next to chocolate.

Yep. A cup of coffee and some pumpkin bread with chocolate chips, and I'm about undone.

*And I have covered your mom in advance of today. I'm also praying for your own health so that you don't have to stay away from her again.

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

Oh, I am right there with you. I can sweet your heavenly baking right now.

Stephanie said...

I'm with you on the pumpkin candles - love the pumpkin and spicy scents this time of year!

Chrissy...The Apothecary Shop said...

I agree too...and anything fall!! Love this post...glad you came by! Chrissy


Love your photos! Now I need to go light my pumpkin candle.

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

OMG you are killing me with the pumpkin pancake pictues, yummmy!!! I also need to find that coffee, can you believe the price of the k cups lately, crazy!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Mari said...

OH...when I went to TJ's the display person was making crepes out of the pumpkin pancake mix and wrapping their breakfast sized bratwurst sausages that had been cut into bite sized pieces and sauteed with apples in them. Heaven on earth. They also told me to buy it NOW since they will likely sell out of that mix before Thanksgiving when I want to do that recipe for my family. :) You need to try it. Seriously. I would not steer you wrong. :)

Creative Ambitions said...

Pumpkin pancakes sound delish Amy!! This post is making me want some pumpkin pie!! :) Hope all is well! The colors are really pretty here in Chatt town... I thought it wouldn't be so with the drought... how about your neck of the woods?

Shannon said...

Ooooh, those pancakes look delicious, Mrs. Amy! =)
Love you,

Jayme Goffin said...

Right now, I can't think of one thing that makes me or my mouth happier than pumpkin. Not. One. Thing.

Mary said...
