I love the beginning of fall. The leaves start to turn color and the garden starts to shut down. Now you can find those runaway zukes. Time to start making oven meals again and make the house smell delicious.

Using my own garden produce to make wholesome and delicious recipes for the family.And canning the for winter.

I love to sit on the front porch with a cool breeze listen to the flow of the creek around our house.
