Hello everyone and happy almost fall! It’s certainly been feeling as though fall has arrived here in the Pacific Northwest and I couldn’t be more excited. Crisp air and dreary days awaken my motivation and rejuvenate my mind. This week, in celebration of the coming season, I will be kicking off the first of many bi-weekly cooking challenges. Over the coming weeks, I will be compiling a variety of recipes all related to a new theme each week– whether that be a type of food, a show, a book, etc.–to share with you on my blog. With the autumnal equinox just around the corner and my favorite in-season fruit at its peak, this week’s meal theme is An Apple A Day. Check back here tomorrow for a yummy, apple-focused recipe just in time for fall!
