10 Savory Pumpkin Recipes Discovered on Pinterest
As Thanksgiving approaches, pumpkin season is in full swing.  On Pinterest, pumpkin recipes are being pinned on almost every food-related board.  Most of the recipes I’ve seen feature pumpkin in a sweet dish.  Cakes, pies, muffins, sweet rolls, ice cream, flan, and the list continues.  As tempting as these recipes appear, personally I prefer using pumpkin in savory recipes:  soups, pasta, and risotto, to name a few.
