Pumpkin Pie Dessert Hummus is everything that you love about pumpkin pie.. without all the fuss! This protein-packed dip comes together in minutes and tastes just like pumpkin pie filling. Serve with homemade Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips, fresh fruit, or graham crackers for a healthy fall snack or sweet treat.
You know that saying, “as easy as pie”? Yeah, I never really got that.
To me, pies are some of the most laborious desserts out there. After all, it’s basically two recipes disguised as one (if you’re making the crust from scratch, that is).
First, you have to make the dough. Then you have to roll the dough. Then you have to transfer the dough to a pie plate. Then you have to go back and inevitably fix all of the holes that you tore in the process. Then you need to parbake the the crust. And then you need to make the filling. Then you have to transfer the filling to the cooled pie crust. Then you have to bake the pie for another hour. And then, THEN, after all that, you finally pull your labor of love out of the oven, only to realize that you forgot to cover the crust with foil, so the edges are burnt to a crisp. *Siiiigh*
The whole thing is nothing short of a broadway production.
Luckily, I’ve found a way to evade all of this unnecessary hassle (are you surprised?)
It’s called… PUMPKIN PIE DESSERT HUMMUS. (more…)

Hi, my name’s Kara and I’m addicted to Panera’s Autumn Squash Soup.
Alright, fine.. I guess there’s probably worse things in this world that I could be addicted to. But tell that to my wallet.
For real though, have you tasted this soup? It’s warm, creamy, and loaded with two of my favorite fall veggies: butternut squash and pumpkin. Eating this soup is the equivalent of wrapping your taste buds in a big, cozy, oversized sweater.
Utter fall perfection.
Blender Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa is the perfect addition to your fall tailgate menu! Smoky chipotle peppers are paired with subtly sweet pumpkin, resulting in a flavorful dip with just the right amount of kick.
I tried, guys. Really, I did.
I promised myself I would wait until the first day of fall to open my first can of pumpkin. I refused to be that girl. You know the one I’m talking about.. the one that is all “OMG #PSL” in like, August.
And yet, here we are. Three days away from the official start of fall and elbows deep in Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa. Soo close…
