The Month in Review - September 2013

If I were to base it on the sheer number of blog posts and Pinterest photos, I would have to conclude that fall is everybody's favorite season.  Oh, I'm sure there are some holdouts and I, myself, will give you a convincing argument for summer.  But, let's face it, fall is awesome.  Crisp air, colorful leaves, pumpkins, apples, the anticipation of the approaching's all pretty damn amazing.

The Month in Review  -  September 2013

Here in New York we've been having some lovely weather with days in the low 70's and nights in the 60's.  Gorgeous but not quite cool enough for those boots, sweaters and changing leaves we all talk about.  Of the many, many (too many) tabs I usually have open on my computer, one of them is the New York State Fall Foliage Report.  These days I check it religiously to find the perfect weekend for a drive upstate to see the leaves, pick apples and gather pumpkins.  Not yet, but soon.  In the meantime, my market has plenty of sweet apples and canned pumpkin puree and the fall baking has commenced.  But, before the autumn food onslaught, let's take a quick look back at all the deliciousness we created in September.  Enjoy!
