Recipe Roundup: Pumpkin / Squash

Happy Autumn Equinox!

This year has felt like it has crept by at a snail’s pace while also flying by — how is it almost fall already!? I’ve written at length about how much I love the autumn season and there’s no denying that gourd-related foods are a major contributor to that passion. Foods made with pumpkins and squash during the cooler months just make me incredibly happy. It’s been really warm, especially during these last few weeks of summer and I am so ready for things to cool off here in Seattle — totally craving cardigans, boots, and pumpkin spice everything — self-proclaimed basic girl over here!
