Every year, as the leaves turn crisp and abandon their branches, the welcome smells and sensations of Fall and Winter like to make themselves apparent to us once again. Cooler air wrestles its way in between cracks in doors and windows, bringing with it the smells of pine and smoke and cinnamon that have no apparent source, yet somehow linger everywhere you go.
During these holiday months, our extended families have several occasions to gather together and these occasions are among the sweetest and most meaningful moments that we experience all year long. Over the years there are certain recipes that have come to be critical pieces of these festive gatherings – recipes that have become a part of the very fabric of the season itself, if only for just our closest family members.
The recipes below represent a few curated examples of these beloved favorites. For me, they are more than just ingredients and directions and pretty photos – they’re the very substance of gathering together with loved ones and connecting once again. It’s my sincere hope that you’ll enjoy them as much as we do.
