Welcome Fall!


I know somewhere, there must be yellow, orange and red leaves, and the crisp breeze of autumn must be filling the air.

Not in tropical, evergreen Miami, where we have torrential rains every day and the weather is still warm…
In spite of the summer Florida weather, butternut squash, pumpkins and sweet potatoes are making their triumphal appearance at the grocery stores and the aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves are beginning to fill the air…
This is the time for apples and pears, for persimmons and pomegranates, for tangerines and tangelos, for dates and nuts, for roasting squashes, turnips and yams…
This is the time to bake pumpkin bread and spicy cookies… the time for slow cooking and for everyday soups, chowders and all kinds of earthy food…
There is something about "letting things go" that I love about fall. May the color and beauty of this season reconnect us with the ever changing cycle of life.
Welcome Fall. Life is beautiful...
