Around the World in 30 Bytes: All About Pumpkin

{Photo by D Sharon Pruitt}
"Around the World in 30 Bytes" is a recurring series focusing on what’s shakin’ in the food blogosphere and in my virtual recipe box.

October is my favorite month of the year. The leaves are turning, the air is brisk, and Starbucks' pumpkin spice lattes are in full effect. All is right with the world...but back to pumpkin. Puree it, chop it, bake it – I’m just crazy about pumpkin! 

Thus, this edition of 30 Bytes is in homage to that sumptuous squash.

Belgium Byte: The Yvestown Blog’s Pumpkin Soup. Mmm...coconut milk...

California Byte: 101 Cookbook’s Roasted Pumpkin Salad. For the healthy pumpkin lover in all of us. 

New York Byte: Smitten Kitchen’s Pumpkin Bourbon Cheesecake. Pumpkin + Bourbon + Cream Cheese = Fab.

Oklahoma Byte: The Pioneer Woman’s Pumpkin Cake with Whiskey Whipped Cream. So I like to cook with liquor. What?

Oregon Byte: Noble Pig’s Pumpkin Caramel Bars with Bacon. The Holy Grail of savory-sweet pumpkinosity. All hail Cathy!
