    Ooh, it's been a brutal winter, and we still have weeks to go. How will we ever survive? Through the magic of crock-pot stews, that's how! After trudging home from work through the cold and slush I would really appreciate it if there were a hot meal waiting for me. Why isn't that happening? Because 1. I haven't taught my 10-year-old how to cook yet and because 2. I don't have servants. But there is a work-around! Ye olde crock-pot. Just a little prep before I leave for the day and dinner will be waiting to warm my belly by night. Here's some soul-warming stews we think will hit the spot.

    Now that we're all hunkering down for a cozy week of cooking for the big holiday, you know what sounds delicious? Starting it all off with a stack of pancakes. We all know how the classic buttermilk pancake hits the spot. But since it's autumn, I thought I'd look around for some pancake recipes with fall flavors. These pancakes should make you think of autumn leaves, pumpkin pie, and that cozy feeling you get waking up on a holiday morning.

    No offense to vegetarians, but for me, one of the tell-tale signs that I'm eating something extraordinarily delicious is if I don't even realize it contains not an ounce of meat. This creamy, cheesy, absolutely amazing baked pumpkin fettuccine alfredo, courtesy of How Sweet It Is, is the perfect meal to try as we -- believe it or not -- wind down from pumpkin season and shift into gingerbread, eggnog, and all-things peppermint season.

    Everyone is going to bring pumpkin pie to your Thanksgiving dinner. And there's nothing wrong with that, of course, because traditions are important. But why not shake things up just slightly this year by taking an old standard -- pumpkin -- and making it just a little more interesting and beautiful by turning it into a super-artsy trifle dessert served in a stunning glass bowl? 

    This recipe, which comes from The Cooking Mom, contains several steps and should be saved for a day when you have a bit of time on your hands -- but in no way does that make it a difficult dessert to whip up. Once you have all your ingredients ready to go, it's quite simple to assemble and looks like it took a great deal of effort to make.

    Please do not tell me that pecan pie is the new pumpkin. Please tell me this is not happening. I don't think I can take it. Just when I thought we'd survived Pumpkin-Flavored Everything Mania 2013 it appears the food industry may be trying to make Pecan Pie-Flavored Everything happen. Or maybe I'm just feeling paranoid after finding out Pringles has come out with a pecan pie-flavored potato chip. Really, potato chip companies? We're so desperate for new flavors that you're raiding Thanksgiving now?

    According to the HuffPo taste-testers the chips don't even taste like pecan pie. They taste more like maple syrup and French toast, and they're incredibly sweet. They also say the chips "are not the worst," which shouldn't be confused with "taste great!" But l almost don't even care if they're good or bad. My issue is this blatant example of holiday flavor abuse.

Maybe we just need a little pumpkin variety. And maybe we need to give this big, orange vegetable some respect. When most people think of pumpkin-flavored anything, they're usually craving that spice mix. You know: Cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg. But pumpkin has a lot of personality that deserves a little time in the spotlight. And it's so versatile -- you can have it with any meal, savory or sweet. Here are 15 pumpkin recipes we think might bring pumpkin back into your good graces this fall.
