Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

_MG_5353

Slightly cool breeze. Falling leaves. Cozy pumpkin spice lattes. Yes. All the signs that fall season is finally here! What better post than a pumpkin inspired one?

I’m really not too fond of how pumpkin only comes out seasonal… I can literally eat it any time, any day. Summertime pumpkin ice cream. Winter pumpkin spice hot chocolate. It is one ingredient that knows how to find its place everywhere haha. I guess the good thing about its seasonal character is that it gives you that excitement where you look forward to the pumpkin patches and what not.

With pumpkin, especially pumpkin, I really feel that there is a difference when you use the homemade pumpkin puree. It is the real deal and it’s pure pumpkin. A whole pumpkin can last you the whole year, depending on the frequency that you bake or cook using pumpkin puree. Last year I changed it up and made two pumpkins which I have still not used up. I probably have a cup or two left. My step-by-step recipe for homemade pumpkin puree can be found here.
