Pumpkin Recipes From Local Sacramento Bloggers

It’s officially pumpkin season! This time of year, we’re inundated with pumpkins at the grocery store, pumpkins at the farm, pumpkins on our porches, and even pumpkins in our lattes.

Join the masses by preparing some delicious pumpkin dishes at home — whether it’s time for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. (And let’s be honest, it’s always time for a pumpkiny dessert.)

The best part about these tested-and-approved recipes is that they were created by local Sacramento area bloggers! Who knows? You may find yourself following a recipe from one of your neighbors…
