AUTUMNAL TREATS


I use this easy and delicious pumpkin cake recipe in my home and professional kitchens.I am a huge fan of all things Autumnal and cannot wait for the first cold snap to start the pumpkin recipe barrage. Luckily my family likes the versatile, orange squash as much as I do. They will be seeing it in all forms from pasta and risotto to cakes, and ice creams. YUM! Chag Sameach
