Parmesan Pumpkin Biscuits

Ever noticed how everyone is absolutely gaga over Red Lobster's cheddar biscuits? I've never thought they were that special.

Although I guess you can't really go wrong with cheese in a biscuit. Which brings me to my next point: you can't go wrong with cheese AND pumpkin in a biscuit.

Pumpkin Cobbler Bars

Ahh my favorite time of year: Pumpkin Week! Okay, so it took Monday off as a pumpkin holiday, but it's here now in full force. Stay tuned for pumpkin-themed posts all week!

Love pumpkin pie but hate using a plate and fork?

Solution: pumpkin cobbler bars. If you remember my Berry Chocolate Cobbler Bars, you know I love cobbler. Crumbly, buttery goodness. Plus, it only takes a few ingredients and is fairly quick to throw together.

I made the cobbler crust from my berry bar recipe and mixed up the standard pumpkin pie filling recipe that's on the back of every can of pumpkin. (Try here if you're without a pumpkin pie can label.)

Broccoli, Fig & Chickpea Salad

Lately it seems like all I've been eating is bread, cheese, pasta, pie, and pumpkin spice lattes, because hey, it's Fall. I love this season, and all the hearty food that comes with it, but sometimes I have to remind myself to take a step back and lay off the butter.
