It’s Autumntime!

It's autumn or fall or that beautiful period where the weather is generally delightful between the heat of summer and the frost of winter. Leaves are changing colors. It's my favorite season.

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Confession: I love sweet potatoes. Maybe even more than regular potatoes. But I prepare them about 3 ways: mashed with brown sugar, casserole, or roasted as fries.

Sunny, clear skies and above normal temperatures after a killing frost are the characteristics. You and I both learned something new… Continue reading Shells and Veggie Soup
