I stirred up a little debate on twitter earlier today with my statement of not liking pumpkin flavored anything. I found that either y'all are strongly against me, or strongly with me.
Let me first say that I love the look of all pumpkin decorations. I'm not anti pumpkin, I just do not like pumpkin flavored things.
However, I feel like I'm making a blogger no no by admitting this today. You see, in my blog feed there has been a flood of pumpkin flavored recipes since October began. Not to mention that I see at least once or twice a day someone showing off their Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks.
My question is... Why can't we have a season where it's all about sweet potatoes. Now that's something I could really get into — sweet potato fries, sweet potato casserole, sweet potato pie. YUM!
For those of you who are cursing me under your breathe for not being a pumpkin flavor fan, I will say that some of the recipes I've seen look like they would be delicious. However, I'm going to take your word on the taste... I can hear my taste buds clapping in the background.
If you are looking for a great pumpkin recipe... you "fans of pumpkin" might like:
Darby's Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon Pecan Streusel — if it wasn't pumpkin flavored I know I would love it!
Now, I have to ask... are you a pumpkin flavored girl or a non pumpkin flavored girl. You can admit it, I promise you will not get any backlash from me! I can't wait to see how many of you are lovers or haters.
