Even though cooking isn’t high on my list of fun things to do, some of these Pumpkin Patch recipes just might tempt me to get back in the kitchen and whip up something fun for my family. That is, if I ever finish all these painting projects. Seems like they will never end, so I’m thinking I actually need to take a break from painting and do something else for a while. But I really just want to get it DONE! Unfortunately, it just takes time for paint to dry (especially when you are painting old cabinets, shelves, and cupboards and they need several coats of paint to make them look good!), so while the paint is drying on the most recent project, I’m off to do something else for a while. So why not cook while I’m waiting? I’m trying, really, I am! Here are a few fun autumn recipes that I found around the blogosphere that I just might try this coming weekend.

OK, so I really can’t resist all these adorable little cakes in a jar! This one is not only pretty, but I’m thinking it is pretty yummy, too. This is going to be my first attempt at being creative in the kitchen this autumn. I’ll let you know how mine turn out.

These certainly look delicious! Can’t tell for sure, but they might take a lot of work and a lot of time, but I’m going to check out the recipe and see. If they aren’t too “fussy” I might try the Pumpkin Mousse Cupcakes for my family. Cupcakes are certainly better that a whole cake, that’s for sure – we actually don’t eat lots of sweet stuff around here, so a whole cake sometimes goes to waste, but with cupcakes I could pop a few in the freezer for another day.

I don’t know . . . this Pumpkin Cheesecake really looks . . . good enough to eat! But isn’t cheesecake really hard to make? I don’t think I’ve ever tried, but this just might tempt me to give it a go. Of course, the chances that mine would look this good when it is finished are pretty slim, but I’ll bet it would still be really yummy! Want to try making this Pumpkin Cheesecake? Visit the Brown Eyed Baker for the complete recipe – then let me know how it turns out!
Only if you are really brave! There is just no way mine would ever look this pretty – what about you? Since this one was created by those professions cake makers and bakers at Wilton, I thing that it would take a professional to get it to look like this. But who knows, it might be worth a try – I might discover that I actually like creating this kind of beautiful care. But then the problem would be that I would want to eat it, and I really don’t need more sugar in my diet. But if you would like to try making this gorgeous Pumpkin Roll Cake, visit the Wilton website for the complete recipes and directions.

Pumpkin and praline, all together in a cake. I just might be able to try this one, because it looks like the frosting is only in the middle and on the top. I always have trouble getting the frosting to look pretty when I try to put it on the sides of a cake. Then all I need to do is add a few pecans to the top to make it look positively perfect. Maybe, just maybe . . . this would be a perfect dessert for Thanksgiving dinner, don’t you think?

That sounds like my kind of kid! The Girl Who Ate Everything – could be easy to cook for. This might be a little bit easier to get the whole cheesecake thing figured out, if I could put it inside of a muffin instead of trying to make it stand on its own. These muffins actually do look pretty perfect for a Sunday morning around here, so we’ll see if I can find some time in between waiting for all of the coats of paint to dry to whip up something for my family. After all, just having every room in the house painted, even though that is a good thing (when it is finished!) doesn’t replace feeding my kids. Occasionally.
