I was recently told by someone that “pumpkin is acceptable [only] until December 1st” – which means I’m in trouble because December 1st has come and gone, and I still have some pumpkin recipes to share with you!

I know the official pumpkin season has mostly passed, but I am still dying to share these last couple of recipes with you – so bear with me, please?! I promise, it’ll be worth it.
