Man oh Man do I love the fall. I am completely obsessed with this time of year. The smell of the trees, the feeling of the cool air, warm pj’s fresh out the dryer, hoodies and comfort food.
So, bring it on to all the casseroles, stews and soups, homemade breads and the warm desserts. I’m so excited to feature some of my favorite recipes to make this season for you to bring into your own homes.
If you live in the tristate area you are fully aware that Labor Day weekend was COLD! So, the traditional farewell to the beach and pool life wasn’t had by all…because, well, it wasn’t that nice outside. If you’re anything like me, the second you feel the shift you start digging your fall clothes out. I was in sweatpants all weekend catching up on GOT with Mr. G. Remote control in hand, blanket on, and ready to chill I thought it would be the perfect time to whip up a warm dessert to commiserate the season and warm us up. So, a cobbler it was…
