Goodnight Irene. No seriously…goodnight Irene.
Along with causing loss of life and limb, $3 billion in property damage and power outages in 4 million homes and businesses in the northeast, Hurricane Irene has left yet another loss in her hateful wake: Pumpkins.

Our advice? Gather ye pumpkins while ye may…and cook 'em up while ye can. Here are a few recipes to try that make the most of our favorite fall fruit.
