Hey, have you heard that it's officially fall? Of course, you have! It's everywhere and people are excited about it. Including me. That means pumpkin spice everything, Halloween, cooler temperatures, and the beloved legging season is upon us.
Pumpkins are an extremely versatile fruit that ripens in late summer which is why they're everywhere come fall. They're a part of our fall culture. It can be added to almost any recipe to make it tastier, can be put in any room to make it more festive and can even be the perfect bassinet for your baby (more on that later).

Here is a list of everything you can (and should) do with a pumpkin this year because… why not? Yes, a majority of these are recipes but some are *out of the box* ideas!

1. Make Cookies

Who doesn't love cookies? Who doesn't love autumn? Put the two together and what do you get? An undeniably irresistible cookie recipe. In case you didn't know already, pumpkin and chocolate go very well together. These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies have the spice of pumpkin and the sweetness of chocolate. Using a simple cookie mix, add a generous amount of canned pumpkin, and be careful not to over bake. These are best served warm but stay soft and chewy over time.
