Pumpkin Madness

At least, that’s what Fall in New England feels like sometimes!

It started with the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, and seems to have spread from there. Now everyone has pumpkin something on the menu. To wit:

Dunkin’ Donuts has gone Pumpkin crazy. I’ll admit, I love the pumpkin coffee flavor, both hot and iced. It’s pre-sweetened and I just order it plain with a dash of skim milk. And by that I mean, I send my husband out to fill my order while I nurse the baby every morning. Yum!

Pumpkin Spice Whiskey, crafted by the Sons of Liberty Spirit Company. Available starting this week in liquor stores around Boston.

Yes, there are even pumpkin spice M&M’s. I can’t decide if these sound good or not?

I love me some pumpkin flavor, but I wonder if there’s such a thing as too much. And let’s not forget that other classic New England fall staple: apples! I can’t wait to take the baby out apple picking — she’s a little small this year — and to eat apple cider, cider donuts, and caramel apples. Since she’s so tiny, our fall festivities so far are confined to taking her for walks and drives among the foliage near our house. The Boston Globe had some great apple recipes in the paper Tuesday: apple crostata, apple-bacon tartines, and turkey kielbasa with apples and sauerkraut. And the Pioneer Woman also just posted a collection of her best pumpkin recipes, from soup to muffins to pumpkin cream pie. Even Make Magazine jumped on the bandwagon this year, posting a recipe for pumpkin cheesecake martinis the other day. Yum!
