Finally, finally, just in time to save my sanity, it's here. Fall is here! (Tomorrow. Small detail.)
All summer, while happy to be munching on mountains of berries, cherries, peaches, and tomatoes, I am thinking of fall with its pumpkins and apples and sweaters and soup. And now it's here. Fall is finally here.
I'm looking forward to making these 15 favorites. (Especially the ones from the early days with the really bad pictures. I think updates posts are in order.)
