Yesterday was Labor Day which means we are unofficially entering Autumn aka Fall. I don’t know for you, but it’s my favorite season. I love the colors and that it’s the start of so many things here in the US. It’s the start of the school year which was a little crazy for us as my daughter just started high school!

It’s also the start of College football and NFL football. This is a “tradition” that I had to get accustomed to but, I have to say, I do love now. Living 3 years in Tallahassee has helped me develop an appreciation and a love for ” American” football. I just love weekends when you just get busy around the house, cooking and cleaning ( I know, I’m weird) and watching your favorite teams play.

It’s also the start of the new season of all of our favorite shows and the start of new ones. My favorite fall shows? Well, I’m a big teenager at heart so I love to watch shows with my daughter like The 100, Fresh Off The Boat, and Quantico but our favorite one is How To Get Away With Murder.

And this year is also an election year here, so I’m really looking forward to the drama and craziness of the elections! Who needs scripted drama when you have politics!

And Fall is the start of a new group of fruits to bake with. My favorite? Pears. This recipe is a classic. You can make it with apples or pears. It’s creamy and simple. The vanilla gives this simple dessert its richness. And it’s the perfect way to welcome Autumn.
