Fall flavors, good friends and pumpkins!

While your friends are gathered around the table scooping out pumpkin seeds and carving spooky faces, you can work on your own autumn masterpiece. Begin the meal with a simple kale caesar salad, followed with a beautiful seasonal butternut squash risotto. Pumpkin shaped cake pops are whimsical and fun and a mug of steaming spiked cider will warm your guests from the inside out (just be sure to put down the knife before you enjoy the boozy cider).
