Risotto Stuffed Pumpkin

So I've been meaning to make risotto for a while, but after reading this post, I finally went out and bought ingredients! I used a basic vegetable and brown rice risotto recipe, and baked the pumpkins with some olive oil, salt & pepper. It was my first time eating fresh pumpkin and I was actually pretty surprised at how well the pumpkin and risotto went together.

Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies

I've been wanting to make something with pumpkin ever since fall started. After reading about these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, I decided to give it a go! Well, everything was going well until I realized that I forgot to add in honey after it had been in the oven for about 10 minutes. .
First of all, they were already in a cake tin because I was already using the muffin tin for the spider cupcakes :), and when I pulled it out of the oven to mix in the honey as an attempt to save the "cake", the chocolate chips were already melting, so these turned into brownies. . .
I thought these tasted a LOT better after they cooled down. They stay pretty moist, and make a good topping for oatmeal too.

Spider Cupcakes

It's almost Halloween! These cupcakes were made for a friend's birthday, and while they were baked from cake mix, the cute candy decorations should make up for that!
