You might not want to turn into a pumpkin at midnight, but odds are you wouldn't mind eating pumpkin all day until then. This fall, get your pumpkin fix with sweet and savory recipes that will take you from breakfast to dinner (not to mention dessert), whether you use fresh pumpkin or canned puree.

Breakfast

Once your alarm blares, heat up your waffle iron first thing for  Pumpkin-Chipotle Waffles. This sweet and spicy morning treat comes with a Southwestern-style kick from cayenne-and orange-infused maple syrup.

Coffee

Conjure your inner barista by brewing Food Network Kitchen's own take on the  Pumpkin Spice Latte at home. Warming and spicy, it has a little pumpkin puree whisked in for extra body — and it'll be a whole lot cheaper than hitting the coffeehouse day in and day out.

Lunch

Get some midday comfort by cozying up to a bowl of Food Network Magazine's  Tortellini with Pumpkin Alfredo. Adding pumpkin puree to beloved Alfredo sauce adds another layer of flavor and nutrients.

Snack

If you find yourself carving jack-o'-lanterns in the lead-up to Halloween, be sure to save the seeds. That way, you can roast 'em for an easy, crunchy and addictive snack. Follow our instructions for making  Pumpkin Seeds 5 Ways in sweet and savory flavors.

Appetizer

Serving Food Network Magazine's hot  Pumpkin Queso Fundido is a crowd-pleasing way to get the party started, especially if you're having company. Use a sugar pumpkin as your dipping vessel and as an ingredient to combine with hot cheese.

Drink

Knock back some pumpkin by shaking up Food Network Magazine's  Mexican Pumpkin Punch, a sweet drink inspired by a Mexican cocktail and made with pumpkin puree, cinnamon sticks and dark brown sugar. Make it with or without rum.

Dinner

Sink a spoon into Food Network Magazine's warming  Pork and Pumpkin Chili, which works as a nice break from your go-to chili routine. With pumpkin, pork and a splash of beer on board, it has layers of fall flavor your chili bowl has never seen.

Dessert

A full day of pumpkin eating had better end with dessert. Bake a batch of these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, loaded with pumpkin puree and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves, plus the mandatory scattering of chocolate chips.
