pumpkins

Halloween and Thanksgiving are when the pumpkins come to haunt us. Forget the witches, it is the gourds muscling in on our innocent festivals.

There are certain times during the year when it's worth it to brave the labyrinthine lines at Trader Joe's. And each one of those times happens exclusively during the fall, when pumpkin spice and caramel apples crawl out from the floorboards and descend from the rafters to claim their annual shelf space.
The Teal Pumpkin Project is an initiative started by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) to provide children with food allergies a trick-or-treating experience that is safe for them.
