Y’all, every time I begin to type the word pumpkin, it ends up pumpking.  Then I backspace the g.  Seriously, every time.

As you know, if you’ve followed my blog, pumpkin really is king around here.  From savory, to sipping, to sweets, I can’t get my hands on enough pumpkin in the fall.  Now, let me be the first to say, we’re barely into the beginning of September, and it’s been blazing hot here in Nashville.  So I’m not quite craving the fall foods just yet, but trying to squeeze out the last bit of goodness from summer (corn on the cob, watermelon, okra, etc).  However, due to the wonders of Pinterest, lots of autumnal treats & decorations have been getting pinned since at least mid-July!  Heck, even I’m guilty of some pumpkin pinning of my own.

I’ve been on the receiving end of pumpkin pins on pinterest (try saying THAT one 3x fast!), as the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Truffles I made in my inaugural year of blogging have been getting a lot of hits from Pinterest lately.  When I went back to reread the old post, the first thing that I cringed at was the photos!  Eeek!  They were done with my point & shoot.  While they aren’t awful, they are quite up my current standards.  Those little balls of pumpkin, white chocolate, graham cracker, & cream cheese goodness deserve better!  And while I would normally hold off on posting pumpkin stuff this early, by golly you got to give the people what they want!  And the people want pumpkin!  *cue crowd cheers*

So head on over to the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Truffle post to get the recipe, and happy pinning!  (PS. If you have no idea what Pinterest is, and want an invite, just fill out my contact form and I’ll invite as many people as I can.)  Or if you’re interested in more pumpkin goodies, check my pumpkin tag to see ALL pumpkin related things in my blog.  Here’s just a sampling of some of the things I’ve made & enjoyed!
