“It’s too early for pumpkin” is one statement you’ll never hear me say; Never ever. It’s always time for pumpkin, always. That’s why I start the day with these Pumpkin Pancakes and end the day with this No Bake Pumpkin Cream Pie! Hah.

Because I have so much pumpkin love, we grow pumpkins twice a year. We have a few to harvest in the Summer and a few to pick in Fall.  Fall’s pumpkins are already planted and have started to produce a few flowers.

We planned to have 2 pumpkin plants but somehow we have 10. I say “somehow” because the truth is, this is my doing. I always want more pumpkins so I saved all the seedlings and secretly planted them. Surprise, a rooftop pumpkin patch! A dream comes true (I hope!)

Chocolate and pumpkin is a great couple,  aren’t they?

I mentioned on Monday that we just used up our last bag of homemade garden tomato sauce that I froze.  The same goes for pumpkin!   When making this pumpkin pudding, I had to reach for my last bag of frozen pumpkin puree.  

 I’m always a bit sad seeing the last bag gone, but it’s a great feeling knowing all the vegetables get used with love. We just planted our pumpkin seeds last week so already I’m planning for some Summer pumpkins!  Are you guys ready for the pumpkin dance?  Prepare yourself… hopefully, I’ll be dancing with happiness soon!

Lots of people think Pumpkin is only for Fall months but I don’t agree with that. I think Pumpkin is great for the summer months for cool treats.  

Besides this chilled pumpkin pudding, what about pumpkin pretzel fudge or pumpkin milkshakes?  Delicious, right?

Want to watch a video of me making this recipe? Check it out here!

I’m on a muffin kick right now.  My favorite muffins of the moment are the Fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins and these Pumpkin ones.  I swear they can’t last in my kitchen with me around.   These chocolate chip muffins here make for a happy breakfast.  

For this chocolate chip muffins recipe, I’m using brown sugar instead of regular white sugar. I find that brown sugar adds a bit of a depth to muffins and brownies.

I start by mixing my wet ingredients. Later in I sift the dry ingredients and combine it with the wet ones. I have added cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg in my dry ingredients. That’s why these chocolate chip muffins are bursting with flavor and some sweetness.

Add in the chocolate chips to the batter. Pour into a muffin tray. For added goodness, I sprinkle in chocolate chips at this step too. This makes the chocolate chip muffins look so much better when they come out. You can instantly see the chocolate chips. So much eye-candy!

Want to know a true story?  I made these buttermilk biscuits twice.  In one week.  I nearly ate them all.  I’m thinking about making them again.   Right now.

Everyone in my family LOVES it – even toddlers!

This weekend there were many surprises in the garden. The monster pumpkin plant just won’t stop growing.  There was a 5 pound bag of potatoes waiting for us under the soil.   Carrots were pulled.   Jalapeno peppers were picked.   Cucumbers were spotted.  

These are all vegetables I was hoping for, but maybe in a few weeks…. but in typical garden fashion, they make their own rules and showed up to the party early.  I couldn’t have been more happy to see them!

I saw a few baby cucumbers growing on the vine last weekend but somehow those babies transformed to multiple large cucumbers in just a few days, ready to be picked and enjoyed.    My Half Sour Pickle recipe and Cucumber Tomato Salad is a favorite way to use cucumbers, but I was trying to figure out how to bake with them.  

Baking with Cucumbers!

This Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread was created because of that!  This bread is similar to Zucchini Bread, but instead is made with grated cucumbers.  After the bread cools, a delicious powdered sugar glaze is poured on top to make it really special.    This is our new breakfast recipe that I’ll be making weekly until the cucumbers finish in the garden.

This is one of my family’s favorite cucumber recipes – perfect for Mom and Dad, but also perfect for toddlers and kids! Even my 1 year old loves a piece of this for breakfast in the morning!

Plus, they taste so much better than store-bought! Start with organic plants and you’ll have your own inexpensive supple of organic veggies to fill your meals.

Diced Tomatoes Recipe

HOW TO MAKE diced tomatoes recipe from fresh tomatoes.  Step by step instructions walk you through the beginning all the way up to freezing or canning them. This is a great way to preserve your garden tomatoes!

How to Make Diced Tomatoes

It’s raining tomatoes still.  A ton of them! 

Right now we have a explosion of cherry (hello cherry tomato sauce!), roma (hello roma tomato sauce!) and beef tomatoes of all sizes currently occupying our counter.    I love seeing a kitchen full of fresh vegetables but it also gives me a slight overwhelming fear of anxiety because I know I have to go to work on them and start preparing our tomatoes to last the next few months.

We pretty much only buy tomato sauce or tomato products during the months of May and June.   July, August and September gives us fresh tomatoes by the basket full while October-April supplies us tomatoes that were canned or frozen months prior.  

It’s always a special feeling when its a cold Wintry day and you can still enjoy some fresh tomatoes you grew months prior when the garden wasn’t covered in snow.
