    It's pumpkin season and there's no time to waste.


    IT IS PUMPKIN SEASON. (Sorry for shouting but I am just so excited.)

    You probably want to eat all the pumpkin, all the time, ASAP. But, sometimes it's hard to know where to even begin.

    So, we asked the folks at Pinterest to share their most popular pumpkin recipes. Whether you use the collection as a starting point or a straight-up bucket list, a few of these are bound to catch your eye.

    1. For midday snack attacks, this spice cake is satisfying without being too sweet.

    This spice cake would be great alongside a cup of tea in a chilly office.

    2. This revved up pudding comes together in just a couple of minutes.

    The recipe starts with pre-made vanilla pudding and calls for add-ins like cream cheese and confectioner's sugar, so it's not exactly light. It IS quick, easy, and delicious, though.
