Folks gathered at over 670 events in more than 60 countries. WOW!!

Reposted from the Marin Mommies Newsletter, Article and recipe from Pamela I’m a big fan of cooking with pumpkin, which is one of the reasons I love the fall. Pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bars, pumpkin ravioli—they’re all delicious. My kids’ favorite are these pumpkin oatmeal cookies, which are chewy and, I like to think, actually good for you. These cookies are a great treat for the lunchbox too. I mix in in dark chocolate chunks (chocolate chips work equally well), walnuts, and dried cranberries to make them more interesting.
