Friday Four 1: Pumpkin Recipes + Life
Hello all and welcome to my first installment of the Friday Four! And more importantly, Happy Friday!
What is the Friday Four? Why am I doing this? Easy questions, easy answers! I’m going to share 4 of my recipes with you along with a little peep into my world for the past week. I think it’s great to share our stories with each other. If you’d love to share anything fun and fantastic that happened in your life this week, feel free to share in the comments below.
Sorry not sorry but the first installment of the Friday four is all about pumpkin. Don’t hate. In my world, it’s never too early for pumpkin. And in case you missed it, Starbucks rolled out their pumpkin spice syrups this week. Guess who enjoyed a Pumpkin Spice Latte on Wednesday?
National Dog Day was also this week. Every day is National Dog Day for my dog. She’s spoiled rotten. And she’s the cutest dog E-V-E-R. In case you haven’t seen thousands of photos of her already, here’s one of her sleeping. Cue the cuteness factor.
OH. One more thing before we get to the recipes. My Carrion plant finally had it’s first bloom of the year. This made me do the HAPPY DANCE!
Here are those pumpkin recipes I promised I’d share with you.
Morning pumpkin cravings? Try these Pumpkin Swirl Pancakes with Pumpkin Butter Topping.
Give the cheesecake lover in you a slice of this Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake.
Cookie monsters love these Pumpkin Pie Cookie Cups. I’m a cookie monster. I would know.
And last but not least, this crazy good cake. Pumpkin Spice Cake with Maple Bourbon Frosting.
I hope you enjoyed the first installment of the Friday Four. I’d love to hear how your week was!

So many delicious pumpkin recipes, I love it! That Carrion flower is really neat, I’ve never seen anything like that before. Enjoy the long weekend, Julie!
Thank you, Ashley! I love that plant! It smells horrid (its way of attracting blow flies, which assist in pollination) but it’s beautiful!
Have a great weekend!
Thank you for the nice recipes and have a Great Weekend!
You’re welcome. Liz. You have a great weekend, too!
Love this new series! It’s always great to catch up. I have yet to stop by Starbucks and grab myself a PSL. Must fix that this weekend. I had a lazy week because the boss is away so I was slacking and enjoying time with the boy! Hope you have a great weekend!
Glad you enjoy it, Zainab! Funny story – we live near Port St. Lucie, Fl. People abbreviate it PSL. So when I see Pumpkin Spice Latte PSL, I always think of Port St. Lucie. Gah. Not cool!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend.
PS, LOVE lazy days at work. Not that I love not being productive. But it seems like there are just times when a lazy day is warranted. Like right before a holiday. Of course, my day wasn’t really lazy today. SO busy. Month end, having to run around to different places. Gotta love accounting. But I do. It keeps me busy and keeps my brain working! LOL
First of all, your dog is adorable!! And, I love all of the pumpkin recipes. Your recipes are always delicious, Julie!
Aww, thank you, Joanne! I love that dog! And I’m glad you love these pumpkin recipes. Hope you have a great weekend, Joanne! :)
My brain is not ready for Fall quite yet, but they look delicious Julie!! Maybe if it drops below 90 degrees, and the dewpoints drop below 70 I can think about it. LOL Have a great weekend. :)
My brain is always ready for fall! I want the cooler weather to be here now! Thanks for stopping by, Lisa. :)
Yay, love this new series Julie! All these pumpkin recipes look amazing! Definitely getting me more excited about fall now! That Carrion flower is so pretty and oh my goodness, your dog is so so cute :)
Thanks, Kelly! Glad you enjoyed this series. :)
Looks like some delicious pumpkin-y goodness to me, hope you’re having a great holiday weekend Julie!
Thanks, Emily! It was good. Hope you had a good holiday weekend as well!
What a great collection. I didn’t realize you can do pancakes with pumpkin.
Thank you, Jacqui! You should try it sometime. So easy to make and so yummy to eat!
Great post, Julie! I love the sound of that pumpkin cheesecake!
And that amazing flower … wow! It’s beautiful and even a bit scary at the same time!
Thank you, Helen! That flower has opened all of its blooms! There were about 10 buds on it this year, by far the most of any year since I have had it. I moved it to my backyard earlier this year. I think it must like the environment out there much better. :)
