"Fall is my favorite time of year. This is the time for something new, even though everything else is preparing for the long winter hibernation. Cool evenings after the hotness summer, the smell of burning fire, cashmere sweaters and scarves, and the brightness of red-colored leaves. There is nothing better than the bountifulness of fall - the funny shaped pumpkins, hundreds varieties of apples, late pears, mushrooms, nuts and many others. At the table, the baked apples present themselves along with squashes and pear desserts. There is always something baking in the oven, and the kitchen is full of heavenly aromas. The autumn table is awaiting its guests. Let’s use this fall’s bounty of this wonderful time of year and cook something bright and cozy. Here are a few recipes that will make any table sparkle in these magic fall months" :
