We're teaming up with other food and garden bloggers to host Fall Fest 2010, a season-long garden party. Each week we'll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you're harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market. To join in, check out awaytogarden.com.

Nothing says "fall festival" like pumpkin and squash dishes, both savory and sweet. Try this Squash Soup in Pumpkin Bowls from the Food Network Magazine for a hearty fall comfort food served with dramatic presentation. Or, browse our collection of perfect pumpkin recipes.

But don't just use the pumpkin, roast up the seeds with the help of Alton's Pumpkin Seed Roasting How-To. And check out our recipes using pumpkin seeds.
