    I was lost in Pinterest recently when I stumbled on a recipe for something called “Bacon Amazeballs.” Being a good American, I clicked on the link, thinking to myself that I would probably drool over it but not bother ever actually making them, because who actually makes all the recipes or follows the fitness regimen on their Pinterest boards?

    Anyway, I clicked the link, and to my surprise and delight discovered that these little goodies are insanely easy to make. Five ingredients. That’s it!

    There is nothing more satisfying than a lasagna. Hello, my name is Garfield the cat, and I approve this message. Just kidding, it is really me, Becca Stokes, a writer and not a cat, though I too reserve a fierce hatred for Mondays and a passion for this noodle-laden, warm, saucy entree.

    Lasagna! I sing your name from the hills! Of course because I am too plain to have lured a man into my lair, I mostly cook for myself. While weeping. This initially involved a lot of trial and error since I come from a family of six. Every meal I made could serve six people. I've since learned how to portion out my cooking, but lasagna's tricky. They don't sell boxes of noodles designed for one person. So what do to with those leftover noodles?

    What do you get when you take red velvet cake mix, Oreo cookies, and white chocolate pudding and blend them all together with cream cheese and -- oh, why not -- even more chocolate bark?

    Please do not tell me that pecan pie is the new pumpkin. Please tell me this is not happening. I don't think I can take it. Just when I thought we'd survived Pumpkin-Flavored Everything Mania 2013 it appears the food industry may be trying to make Pecan Pie-Flavored Everything happen. Or maybe I'm just feeling paranoid after finding out Pringles has come out with a pecan pie-flavored potato chip. Really, potato chip companies? We're so desperate for new flavors that you're raiding Thanksgiving now?

    According to the HuffPo taste-testers the chips don't even taste like pecan pie. They taste more like maple syrup and French toast, and they're incredibly sweet. They also say the chips "are not the worst," which shouldn't be confused with "taste great!" But l almost don't even care if they're good or bad. My issue is this blatant example of holiday flavor abuse.

    Okay, we get it. Some of you are a little bit burned out by the annual October pumpkin obsession. Pumpkin spice everything, everywhere, all the time. But you know what?

Here are 15 pumpkin recipes we think might bring pumpkin back into your good graces this fall.

    At some point in every person's life, we have to answer for ourselves this crucial question: How important is Jell-O to me? Gelatin desserts, wiggly, shivery, translucent blocks of sweet mystery. Can we live without it? Or do we need it like water and air? One man decided gelatin was very important to him indeed -- so important that he called the cops when his Jell-O was stolen from his workplace break room

    Not okay, Jell-O thieves. Not okay.

    Candy corn is to Halloween what turkey is to Thanksgiving -- it's a colorful, celebratory symbol of one of the most joyful holidays of the year. But it isn't as common an ingredient as pumpkin, of course, and it isn't every day that you come across a cool, kid-friendly recipe that incorporates candy corn in such an artful, interesting way. So when I came across this Candy Corn Cheesecake recipe from the blog I Heart Naptime, I knew it needed to be shared with the world.
