The minute you hear that Starbucks announces the release of the pumpkin spice latte, you know the fall is right around the corner. The fall is one of the best times of the year because there are so many harvest festivals, which of course means a variety of amazing pumpkin recipes and we love it! What other time of the year do you get to eat pumpkin, other than the fall?
