  Garlic is one of my favorite seasonings, second only to salt. I realized how much I use garlic when we recently hosted a friend who is severely allergic to both garlic and onion.

  Pumpkins may be the Charlie Brown of vegetables. They’re largely ignored all year, until October or November. Then we carve them, smash them or even use them as projectiles.
