Fall is ALMOST here, and even if it doesn’t yet feel like it in your neck of the woods, now is as good a time as any to start celebrating it! There’s so much to love about fall — summer’s oppressive heat is finally subsiding in the wake of beautifully crisp days, made even more spectacular by the generous stroke of nature’s own paint brush. Gold, it seems, is the official mascot of fall; sorry, Midas, your touch will no longer be required. Not only does the landscape slowly but inevitably turn a deep flaxen hue, but the harvest itself echoes this rich theme. Nowhere is this more apparent than with the illustrious pumpkin, its whimsical golden form reigning supreme over all the rest. Now is the season of the pumpkin.

In honor of our old friend (what childhood fall memory could be complete without her?), I give you the following pumpkin recipes. And not just any pumpkin recipes, mind you; these are some of the best out there from the kind folks at Andrews McMeel Publishing, one of the preeminent publishers of anything food. Give them a try if you want to celebrate the season in a way truly worthy of this proud gourd.
