NEW CASTLE — 'Tis the season for pumpkin- pumpkin pies, pumpkin spreads, pumpkin breads and much, much more.

Yesterday, I went to Dunkin Donuts. I, like most of America (or so they say), run on Dunkin. I spiced up my normal cup of coffee with a shot of pumpkin flavor, then I went the extra mile and ordered a bagel with pumpkin cream cheese. It seems that this fall, maybe more so than the falls of past, is all about pumpkin-flavored goodies.

Either that or I am just now starting to take notice.

Nonetheless my post today is dedicated to, you guessed it, pumpkin recipes.
