It's pumpkin carving season! That means it's time to get out your serrated knife, scoop out mounds of seeds, and get busy designing and carving faces on your pumpkins. Do you prefer whacked out faces or the classic jack-o-lantern face? Either way, here are some ideas to get your creative pumpkin juices flowing.
But I NEVER Carved a Pumpkin Before!
Not to worry, you can find step-by-step instructions to carve your pumpkin on almost any food website. Here is a sampling: BBC Good Food, Good Housekeeping, and Martha Stewart.
