For those of you who are new to the blog, you may notice some of the photos on here are quite excellent and make you want to eat the computer screen, while others look terribly sad and unappetizing. The first year or so of doing the blog, I had no clue a) how much thought and effort is required in order to get good food photos and b) just how important it is to have high quality photos (in hindsight this seems pretty obvious but, ya know, hindsight is always 20/20!). Knowing these things now, I decided to try to go back through the recipe archives on here and remake the recipes with the not-so-awesome photos in order to get higher quality photos in order to showcase them a bit better.
Since fall is now upon us, it seemed appropriate to begin this project with all of the pumpkin recipes on the blog and that portion of the project is now complete! Below is an index with links to all of the pumpkin recipes currently on the blog, all with their schmancy new photos. These recipes are all tagged as “Pumpkin Goodies” too, so if you ever want to find them without going through this post you can either search by that tag in the tag search or simply search for “pumpkin” in the main search box.
It was actually pretty great making all of these recipes again, especially since I haven’t made/eaten most of them since they were made for the original posts on here and I had forgotten how absolutely amazing and delicious they are (I’m especially looking at you, Cheesy & Delectable Pumpkin Stuffed Shells, Pumpkin Pancakes w/Buttered Apple Cider Syrup and Pumpkin Cheesecake French Toast Rollups!). There’s a bit of everything in here – breakfast items, side dishes, main entrees, spices, spreads and desserts; hopefully there’s something new for you all to add to your pumpkin recipe repertoires. Enjoy and happy fall to all!
