What's Cooking?: Flavors of Fall: The Pumpkin

pumpkin soup

It is the peak of autumn as we embrace the stunning flora of leaves changing from summer green to brilliant orange, red, and golden colors. Mimicking the colors of fall as well is the season of harvesting pumpkins, winter squash and gourds.  Squash comes in all varieties of shapes, sizes, and colors but one of the most popular squash is the beloved pumpkin. These bright orange spheres are iconic spectacles beckoning to be picked from the patch for the holidays.  Pumpkin can be used in so many ways.

History in November


King Tutankhamen

Wounded Warriors

Man Holding Purple Heart War MedalAre you holding out for a hero?  I know many of you are looking forward to a weekend of spooky delights, but it's worth remembering that Veteran's Day is less than two weeks away, on Nov. 11th.  In honor of our veterans, the romances I'm spotlighting this month all feature characters who have earned the title of "hero" or "heroine" -- wounded warriors who not only saw combat, but shed blood on the battlefield in service to their country.
