Fall is right around the corner! Very soon, leaves will begin changing colour and falling to the ground as the air turns cool and crisp.It is an inbetween season where it is not really cold and not really warm. The air has that certain woodsy fragrance with a little nip to bite your nose early in the morning and my world is seen through multihued glasses of red and russet. If you haven't already gathered it is THE season and my favourite by far!!!!! I love to bring the warm cozy blankets and sweaters out of hibernation and sit curled up on the couch in front of the fire with a book...or better yet a cookbook.
Not only is Fall a great time for jumping into piles of leaves and carving pumpkins, but it also provides a great chance to try out some delicious recipes that will help bring the spirit of the season into your kitchen and home. One of the easiest ways you can do this is by using the bounty of inspirational produce of the season from your garden or farmers markets in various recipes.
Summer is barely over and already the food store shelves are filled with canned pumpkin, pumpkin pies and a myriad of squashes line the bins. I hope you enjoy browsing through my pumpkin and squash recipes and are inspired to bring autumn into your own kitchen.
"A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake
and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made.
The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds,
no matter how hushed,
are as crisp as autumn air."
