I love this time of year - sipping tea, thunderstorms, sweaters, spices, pumpkin, apples, baking, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. The changing of the seasons also brings in a lot of my favorite Fall vegetables and fruits. As far as cooking goes, I've been slowly transitioning from heavy winter fare, to lighter spring dishes. I've made a lot of quick salads, like this one.
