Fall is upon us and that means baking season is on! The downside of fall is that fresh blueberries are not as plentiful as they are in summer. But wait, we know that frozen blueberries don't lose much of the healthy punch and are as good as the fresh berries when it comes to baking. Add pumpkins into the mix and you have a recipe for fun!
