One Pumpkin Five Dishes: Pumpkin Pecan Bread

Needless to say, this ‘One Pumpkin Five Dishes‘ series has been an exciting and delicious journey! One large pumpkin was bought with a mission to learn different ways to cook with it – not just use it for Halloween decoration and then toss. My goal; five dishes. These dishes include:

  1. Pumpkin Coconut Rice
  2. Pumpkin Pie Pancakes
  3. Caramel Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
  4. Pumpkin Jerk Fries (smells and tastes similar to sweet potato fries)
  5. Pumpkin Pecan Bread (moist and incredible and featured here today)
