As soon as the weather turns or here in California the calendar changes from August to September my tastebuds switch from stone-fruit to the rich, warming flavors of pumpkin.
Baking with pumpkin packs so much moisture, thickness, and subtle flavor to your baked goods then add some delicious pumpkin pie spice for the best warm flavor combination! It is often used as a fat substitute for a healthier twist on baking recipes.

I love your recipes! Is it possible to replace the pumpkin for sweet potato in your pumpkin recipes. Not a very big fan of pumpkin but I love sweet potatoes.

Hi Cynthia, thanks for reaching out. I have never swapped out sweet potatoes for pumpkin but it seems as if you can totally swap it out. Please let me know if you try any of the recipes! Hope you're having a wonderful autumn season! XX Liz
