Today is at least a passing attempt at returning to my normal schedule after a break over the Christmas holiday. Bart and I drove back to Arkansas for over a week and returned home late on Sunday night.

It’s been a while since we have cooked together on the blog. I’m not sure why I’ve been so delinquent to share fun recipes with you, but Christmas seemed like a good time to share a recipe I’ve made with success for the holidays a couple of years in a row.

This weekend, we made a long overdue trip back to Raleigh, NC to visit with friends and family. We were last there at Easter, and we had planned to make a trip sooner, but summer and life got in the way until October. However, it was an absolutely gorgeous weekend, and we crammed a whole lot of fun and catching-up into three days.

Happy first day of fall! Historically, this is my favorite time of year–changing leaves, cooler weather, tasty food, and, most importantly, my birthday! In recent years, however, fall has unfortunately transformed into an unwelcome reminder of the upcoming cold and bitter winter, and for a while I lost quite a bit of the joy and excitement I originally had about it. However, I’ve decided that I don’t want my favorite season to be ruined for me anymore, so I’m on a mission to reclaim fall.
