With fall rolling in, you're starting to think about breaking up with salad, summer's best friend (except pasta salad, of course). The cool breezes have caught you off guard, and you want something that'll stick to your ribs -- you're looking forward to trading in light, fresh meals and entertaining with comforting fall dishes.
You may still be using some late-summer ingredients, like blueberries and plums, but you're starting to say goodbye to others, like tomatoes and peaches. This month, you craved the likes of eggplant parmesan and pasta with mushrooms and found yourself drawn to kale and cauliflower at the market -- practically strangers during the hot, humid months. You’ve even ventured down the apple and cinnamon road. Next stop: pumpkins.
