Enjoy these fan-favorite healthy pumpkin recipes (and mine, too!) all fall long. These delicious and flavor-packed recipes are perfect for those who love the creaminess of pumpkin or those who love a little pumpkin spice.

I’ve selected my favorite pumpkin recipes and those that I get requests to make by private chef and meal prep clients this time of year. The pumpkin hummus crostini is also a favorite at holiday get togethers!

With the weather (sort of) starting to cool down around here and the fall decor going up all over Winter Park and downtown Orlando, I thought it was the perfect time to share a roundup of my own fall favorites.
