From morning treats to cozy dinners, we’ve got a lineup of recipes that’ll make you want to pull out your sweater and dance in the fallen leaves.

A Slice of Pumpkin History
Before we dive into the delicious dishes, let’s take a moment to appreciate the humble pumpkin’s roots. Native to North America, pumpkins have been a staple long before they became the poster child of Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Due to their adaptability and storability, they were a crucial crop for Native American tribes, as they provided food during the long winters. It was the Native Americans who introduced pumpkins to the pilgrims, teaching them the many uses of this golden gourd. Today, they are not just culinary delights but also symbols of fall festivity, carved into jack-o’-lanterns and woven into the fabric of seasonal traditions.
