Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

by Mimi & Vera LevinTastemakers in Residence

When we think of fall, the first thing that comes to mind is pumpkin. From pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin patches, autumn seems to be made up of all things pumpkin. Try our Pumpkin Soup for Lunch or Pumpkin Pine Nut Salad with Shrimp for Dinner. Pumpkin doesn’t have to be saved for pie on Thanksgiving, it can be incorporated into any autumn meal!
