Short ones, fat ones, striped ones, massive ones — we're talking about pumpkins and squash, of course! Whether your garden has a bumper crop or if you just went overboard at the pumpkin farm (see: my kitchen counter), don't use your bounty just for decoration. Today at 2:30 pm Jamie cooks up these butternut squash muffins (you might call them cupcakes) and more, from his garden's harvest. Keep reading to get a taste.

Pumpkin and squash pair well with both savory and sweet recipes, but Jamie's starting off with a comforting pumpkin soup that's topped with Parmesan croutons and sage-infused olive oil. Use a squash with dense, orange flesh for this one, like a pumpkin, butternut squash or onion squash. Once you've mastered the basic recipe, Jamie recommends trying add-ins, like pearl barley, chopped bacon or dried porcini mushrooms. Yum!
