Putting pumpkin to good use
Among other favorite foods that make annual reappearances as the holidays roll around -- such as turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, fresh-baked rolls, just to name a few -- pumpkin pie is often a traditional fall and winter treat.
But there are plenty of other uses for those pumpkins left over from Halloween or cans of puree lining store shelves. Other desserts can benefit from a touch of pumpkin. Ice cream, cakes and breads are popular choices.
