15 Years of Pumpkin Ideas

Martha Stewart Living, October 2006

Pumpkins made an appearance in the first issue of Martha Stewart Living. They were used as soup tureens. Since then, the magazine has employed patches of the winter squash, using them as stew servers, featuring their flesh in recipes, turning their shells into seasonal holders for candles and flowers, and, of course, carving them into myriad variations of the gap-toothed jack-o'-lantern. Below, you'll find some of the most popular recipes and projects from over the years, including pancakes and an orange owl with ghoulish gourd eyes. Whether you use pumpkins to sweeten a snack or to spook trick-or-treaters, savor their flavor -- and their wicked smiles -- while they're here.
