Eating for the Season: Autumn
The leaves are starting to change, the air is a bit crisper, and pumpkin spice lattes have made their debut... all markers that autumn has arrived. 

It's also a great time to take advantage of the fall produce that is coming into its own this time of year, such as apples, pumpkins, butternut squash, carrots, onions, and garlic -- just to name a few.
