https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js
The brisk fall weather is here. When I think of autumn and fall memories of fresh bread baking and the smell of pumpkin pie come to mind.  Pumpkin is a delicious, low calorie, orange vegetable full of antioxidants.  We carve them into Jack-O-Lanterns to celebrate Halloween.  Miniature pumpkins decorate our tables to welcome autumn and Thanksgiving.  Most of all, I love cooking with pumpkin; fresh or canned, it is one of my favorite flavors of fall.  Below is a delicious low-fat pumpkin cheesecake recipe that everyone in my family loves.  I am sure your family will love it too.
