Well, I took an unplanned hiatus from the blog this summer, but today… the first day of fall… seems the perfect day to return. This is my favorite time of year… football, pumpkin candles, nutmeg, homemade apple pie, roasted tomato soup… all the scents of fall… I love it all.
It’s a time to gather as family and friends around a big table full of delicious food with candles casting a caramel glow all around. And that’s exactly what I plan to do. I got a new cookbook for my birthday. It’s Ina Garten’s (Barefoot Contessa) Back to Basics. I’m looking forward to trying out the recipes surrounded by those I love.
Oh, and next Wednesday I’ll have a new one to love… my niece, Mary Linnley is coming and I can’t wait to meet her!
