Fall Is Here!

It's hard to believe that fall is here and we're already into October! The nights are starting to cool, and it seems like Halloween is right around the corner! And we all know what that means -- we'll be swinging into the holidays before we know it!

One of the staples of this season is the pumpkin. When I get pumpkins to make jack-o-lanterns for Halloween, it always reminds me of the many uses of the pumpkin: pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, pumpkin stew, and pumpkin bread. So in honor of the month, today's recipe is Pumpkin Gingerbread, made with lots of spices and fresh grated ginger. It's a very easy recipe, and it uses vegetable oil instead of butter, which makes it easy and probably healthier too.

Happy Autumn!
