Fall Food Rituals

I love the fall.  The cool weather is welcome after the grueling, humid summers on the east coast.  To usher in the new season and changing foliage, I like to try a new dish.  This tradition started a few years ago when my aunt asked me to make the broccoli-cheddar soup recipe she’d seen in a food magazine.  I saw this as a culinary challenge and I accepted it!  Cooking, much like writing, is about exploring the realms of creative possibilities. 

I enjoy cooking with fresh vegetables and herbs.  Celery, carrots and onions are a holy trinity for most soup recipes and there is no smell that compares to the blending of fresh vegetables and herbs in a stock pot. 

For the past three years, I have been making homemade soups like chicken noodle, split pea and broccoli-cheddar.  September is here, so I will begin my hunt for a new soup.  I create my own recipes or try a recipe of a chef I like.  Sometimes I borrow from a few recipes and add a little something of my own.

Recently, I’ve attempted to make an apple pie.  It’s pretty good for my first try at homemade pie, but it’s still a work in progress.  Lol.
