It’s officially pumpkin season! Let the pumpkin games begin! We’re all about pumpkins—we’ve been to the pumpkin patch, carved our pumpkins, Tammy’s daughters have painted faces on their pumpkins (well Summer did, Riley made a gray “tornado-like swirl” face on hers [admittedly, probably not her best work), and now we’re gearing  up to roast the seeds (aka- pepitas) and cook with the pumpkins!  After all, pumpkins can help to keep your heart healthy with their fiber and antioxidants, protect your skin from the sun and inflammation and keep it clear with its’ beta carotene, and can boost your immune system with its’ powerful antioxidants!


We want to get the pumpkin cooking, well, cookin’… so let’s kick-off pumpkin season with this  pumpkin ravioli!
