It’s only appropriate that I started this blog in the fall…my favorite time of year. Ok, I know, the official start of fall is September 22, but it’s close enough for me. It’s getting dark earlier, there is a chill in the air, and the leaves are changing to their beautiful autumn colors…vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows. I’m pulling out those jeans, sweaters, and boots, which is just as well. My summer tan is fading fast. Most of all, fall fare has to be my all time favorite….soups, chilis, and baking with apples and pumpkin. You’ll find it all here, and guaranteed it will be hard to contain myself.
