The Popularity of Pumpkin and our Favorite Recipes

IMG_0029It’s been 10 years since Starbucks introduced its famous pumpkin pie spice latte and since then, consumers have clamored for everything pumpkin.  This year Starbucks brought the seasonal favorite back to their stores in August, a full month early.  In the last five years, the US Dept. of Agriculture says pumpkin sales have jumped 34%.  Not to be outdone, we have our own fabulous take on pumpkin coffee creamer (without chemicals) and little delish pumpkin cakes.
