A special October recipe collection
This is one of the only monthly recipe lists you will find that’s totally curated for seasonality. I don’t just share any recipe that has butternut squash in it, or pears, or apples. I make sure all of the ingredients are currently in-season, or available (in good quality) all year.
I want recipes that let me pick up all of my fresh produce from the farmers market when possible.
