By now your local markets are probably overflowing with all varieties of pumpkins and squashes. While I'd like to roast a whole pumpkin this month or next, I've only managed to cook with canned pumpkin puree so far. Tsk tsk. I know.
Not sure if people on those sites/forums were using incredibly dull knifes or simply exaggerating to look super hardcore. Either way, don't let the internet intimidate you. Cutting and cooking squashes is easy stuff.
