Heaps of tasty pumpkin recipes to take you from lunch, to dinner and even dessert – there’s pumpkin pies, pastas, bakes and so much more!
I absolutely love pumpkin soup and eat it at least a couple of times a month, but I realised that I probably don’t get overly creative with pumpkin. I recently did a call out on my Instagram stories for your favourite pumpkin recipes and they came flooding in (you are all so clever!). I am so delighted to share these tasty pumpkin recipes with you all, including a family Pumpkin Pie recipe that was kindly shared with me by one of my lovely community members.

ENAMEL BAKING TRAYS
Falcon Enamel products are incredibly popular because of their enduring strength. Enamelware is porcelain fused onto heavy-gauge steel, making it durable, smooth and chemical-resistant. It can assume brilliant, long-lasting colours, and cannot burn. If you drop it, it may chip but it won’t break.
I am totally converted to enamel bakeware. I love them cause they are lightweight and super easy to clean, I’ve been using The Pink Stuff Cream Cleanser when my roasts make a huge mess.

- Freezer Friendly
- Suitable for gas and electric
- NOT suitable for Microwaves
- PTFE & PFOA FREE – so chemically safe
- various colour options available
