Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Squares

Happy Monday! Why am I smiley on a Monday?  It’s  The Secret Recipe Club reveal day for Group C.  And, my assignment this month was a match made in heaven.  You know how “they” say things happen in threes?  How about these commonalities? (1) Our favorite kitchen gadgets are our  assortment of scoops. (2) We have an obsession with reality TV. And, (3) We love road trip vacations. Reading through Gloria’s blog, Gingersnap Girl, made me want to be her neighbor.

I am all about her recent Caramel Apple Jam post, especially since I bookmarked her Caramel Apple Cupcakes when we were first notified of our assignment.  But her Creamy Lemon Almond Tart looks irresistible, too. Her Quinoa Tabouli Salad is calling my name, though, because I have been quinoa obsessed for years.

For the reveal though, I stuck with what I have been currently running with…pumpkin. I had pumpkin puree left over from the Williams-Sonoma Pumpkin Crème Brûlée I made in mason jars (but never posted),

so I gravitated to Gloria’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Squares.  Pumpkin is the quintessential mascot of Fall. I know you’ve seen all the posts and magazine stories that highlight its splendor. But, did you also know that, as an orange veggie, pumpkins are rich with beta carotene and have the potential to be metabolized with vitamin A? That means pumpkins have potential to prevent the development of cancer block the growth of cancerous cells. Sweet, right?

Of course, they were a hit at work. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Squares = Super Happy Teachers.

Thanks for another fun month!
