So I caved. I did not wait until October 1st to post a pumpkin recipe. Mother nature has been telling me it’s fall for the last two weeks so I listened.

Fall is my absolute favourite season. Thanksgiving, the weather, the beauty that is Northern Ontario when the leaves are changing, and the excitement of now being able to decorate my house! When it comes to decorating, whether it’s my home in general or for each season, I’ve been SUPER impatient. You know how your parents have bins and bins of like Halloween and Christmas decor in the attic with stuff that they’ve had since before you were even a thought? Yeah, I’ve been having a hard time accepting the fact that I haven’t accumulated 25 years of decorations in the last year.

At this time of year, I’m so tempted to go drop a large sum of money in HomeSense and Michael’s to buy ALL OF THE THINGS fall and Christmas. The second I walk in the doors, I immediately regret my decision of going to “look”. Not only do I want to buy everything, but I honestly believe it causes me stress over the fact that my house does not look like something off HGTV.

But, I am quickly learning that a first house will probably always be a work in progress, and to just enjoy the ride. I’m at least getting good use out of my kitchen? HA.

Now, can we PUHLEASE discuss the amazing-ness that is this rice pudding though? My mouth is watering just typing about it. Growing up, rice pudding was always one of my favourite desserts. Was anyone else obsessed with those little Kozy Shack cups? SUP COSTCO.

But I’m prepared to say that this version is arguably way better (and healthier). Fall spices, pumpkin AND maple syrup? Like hi. Creamy, decadent, pumpkin spice goodness.

What’s great is that this is totally healthy. Healthy enough that you could probably eat it for breakfast, but delicious enough that it can pass for dessert.

Canadian Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I’m thinking this is definitely going to be a winner.

- You can use honey instead of maple syrup if you desire
