Who says pumpkin’s just for autumn?
I’m still working on my pantry transformation. The first step is to empty the pantry so I can paint and preen. After making these sweet treats, I am officially out of chocolate chips and pumpkin. There’s such tasty satisfaction in reaching toward this particular goal!
