As anyone who knows me can attest, I’m, ahem, not the biggest fan of winter. (What? My incessant griping about cooler temperatures, constant whinging about having to don gloves and a scarf in OCTOBER, stomping of feet each time I walk The Girls outdoors, and unrepentant sobs when I spy the first errant flakes of snow descending through the skies–somehow tipped you off?).

Long-necked butternut (plus the recent mini honeynuts!); scalloped acorn; long, elegant delicata; stout-yet-oh-so-sweet kabocha; versatile spaghetti; cute as a button sweet dumpling; and, of course, every variety of pumpkin, from sugar pie to red kuri to the ghostly white–I just love ’em all.

And now that we’re in the thick of PSS (Pumpkin Spice Season)–well, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create something spectacular to showcase the classic pumpkin flavor.
