Although it’s still hot in many areas of the country, I can’t help but have fall on my mind. There’s a feeling of excitement that comes over me when I feel that first cool breeze because sweater weather is near! When your weekend plans shift from poolside priorities to picking out the perfect pumpkin for your entryway, you know fall has officially begun.
One of my favorite memories growing up in the Midwest is smelling the sweet aroma of spices after a morning of raking and playing in the leaves. Fall, to me, is truly a season of comfort and there is nothing more comfortable than a hearty sweet or savory meal first thing on a breezy morning. May I suggest one of these to start your day?
