7 Alternatives to Pumpkin Everything

We have entered another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of taste. A journey into the omnipresent and annoying land of pumpkin spice. Next stop, the pumpkin zone!

Not to knock the pumpkin, but there are so many other delicious winter squash varieties. Here are a few incredible recipes proving you can do a lot more with a winter squash than spice them up with a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger.
