    The squashes and pumpkins are still ripening in the garden, but in another month–or less!–it’ll be time to cook, cook, cook….

    I tasted a Smoky Pumpkin Dip made with the Pumpkin Pecan Butter, but the store could not tell me where to find the recipe. I know, I am also confused as to how they made the dip without a recipe. Does anyone have such a recipe? The ingredients were cream cheese, bacon, green onions, and either chili powder or smoked paprika. Thank you!
