Pumpkin may be most popular when it comes to fall produce, but acorn squash comes in a close second! Roasting is a quick-and-easy way to prepare this mild and slightly-sweet, orangish-yellow “veggie” (which, like pumpkin, is technically a fruit). Just cut into wedges, prep with agave nectar and cinnamon and bake for about 20 minutes. Happy autumn!
OK, you and I may not want to admit it, but fall is upon us. Even though we aren’t brandishing our bare skin in this cooler weather, we can keep our sexy summer skin – even under our sweaters. With my patented (no, not really) three-step routine of “polish-primp-pamper” you will have healthy, glowing, supple skin all season long.
Q. With fall just around the corner, what should I plan to do differently in my skincare routine?

It’s the in-between season where summer sun can still be scorching hot, yet the kids are back to school and fall is knocking on the door. Now is an ideal time for a complexion check. The summer months can be rough, with everything from increased UV exposure to higher humidity, harsh pool chemicals and even travel wreaking havoc on your skin. The wear and tear can really start to become noticeable this time of year.
The sweltering heat of summer has finally given way to the crispness of autumn, so now is the perfect time to switch up your skincare routine.
Whether the dry air is making your face flaky or summer damage is starting to show up on your skin, it’s never too late to give yourself a fresh start. Check out our top skincare and beauty picks for the fall season:
Nothing so vividly illustrates the best of the fall harvest like pumpkins. The name pumpkin originated from the Greek word for large melon: pepon. Nasalized into “pompon” by the French, then changed to “pumpion” by the British, the word “pumpkin” was coined by early American colonists, who learned how to grow and cook these bright orange beauties from Native American tribes.
Cooking with fresh pumpkin is easy and fun. Just follow these simple preparation tips, or use organic canned pumpkin to make this delicious Tortellini with Pumpkin Sage Sauce.
