Fall Over Here!

Whenever the weather turns autumnal, I try to make as many visits to my parents home in Massachusetts. Now, New York in the fall can be beautiful as well, but nothing beats the true New England foliage and the image of my dog engaged in battles with leaf piles around the neighborhood. I also relish trips to Wilson Farm in nearby Lexington: DSC_0001 DSC_0010 DSC_0016DSC_0017In preparation for fall and its bounty of tasty ingredients like squash, sweet potatoes and the ultimate apples, I’m gearing myself up with a little pre-jaunt to the land of Hallowed Eves and Cinnamon-laced beverages.
