Stuffed pumpkin for your meatless holiday meal

Holiday meals are traditionally built around one signature entrée, typically a grand piece of meat: turkey at Thanksgiving, perhaps roast beef or a goose at Christmas.  Lamb goes with Easter and is also an important part of other celebrations around the Mediterranean.  A luau features roast pig.  The point is: meat is the centerpiece.  But […]

Well, there’s always PB & J, or even […]
