Pumpkin is not only synonymous with Halloween, but it also signifies the official arrival of fall. What better way to celebrate the season and National Pumpkin Day than with pumpkin soup? Decadent and warm, its bright color will keep away the pre-winter blues.
Try Rachael’s Pumpkin Soup With Chili Cran-Apple Relish for a scrumptious meal in less than 45 minutes. The natural sweetness of the pumpkin is enhanced with cinnamon and nutmeg, while the chili powder and hot sauce liven up each bite. The apple, onion, cranberry and honey make a great relish all on their own, but tastes even better when mixed into the soup.

Food Network’s senior culinary editor, Liz Tarpy, picks her favorite recipe for October.
I went to my local garden center this weekend to buy lily of the valley bulbs. Instead, I walked out with a half dozen apple cider doughnuts. I couldn’t resist the colorful display of pumpkins and gourds, bunches of dried corn, gallons of cider and bags of these cakey doughnuts (or “fat pills,” as a former boss once called them). Normally, doughnuts don’t appeal to me. But with the colors and smells of fall all around, buying the doughnuts (and supporting the local farm to boot) just seemed like the right thing to do.
It’s OK to have treats now and again, I reasoned, as long as they are balanced with more healthy choices. I can have my cake, and my vegetables, too.

There’s nothing better than a heaping helping of potatoes; whether they’re Yukon Gold, russet or fingerling is entirely up to you. The hearty vegetable sometimes gets a bad rap, but potatoes are actually low in sodium, high in potassium and an important source of complex carbohydrates and vitamins C and B-6.
Make the most of this year’s potato harvest by mixing them with other rich ingredients and baking ‘em in a casserole dish. Easy to put together and full of flavor, a casserole makes for a great make-ahead meal that requires hardly any prep.
Whip up Emeril’s Twice Baked Potato Casserole for a buttery, cheesy mashed mix. The key is adding butter, sour cream, heavy cream and seasonings to the potato flesh once they’ve gone through one round of baking in the oven.
