Autumn is officially here and I am ready to start enjoying the changes that come along with this new season. For me, this means creating the feeling of autumn in my home. I love to do this simply through the use of colors, textures, nature, and of course food.
My friend Kristen from Ella Claire Inspired asked me to participate in her “Tastes of the Seasons” blog hop again this year. What an honor! I am sharing a favorite recipe that my family enjoys this time of year in this post. You will also be inspired with 20 other autumn recipes by talented bloggers who are welcoming the new season into their homes. If you are here by ways of one of those friends, welcome!
Let’s get started!
There is just something special about making my own bread for my family, but for some reason it seems extra special at this time of year. I’m not sure if it is the bread making process, the scent that fills my home, or the satisfaction of knowing that everyone will be smiling from ear to ear when they walk in the door and smell that familiar smell. Whatever the reason, I have always felt that the work was well worth its return with making my own bread.
I have never tried my hand at making an herb butter, but I thought it would be a wonderful use for all of my herbs that I grew this summer in my garden. I do have to say that I love using ingredients that I cared for and grew myself. I’m not successful at growing much in the garden, but I mastered growing herbs!
If you would like to learn more about how I keep my autumn decorating simple through the use of color, texture, and outside elements you can join me in my workshop “12 Days of Simple Autumn Decorating”. You can learn all about it here.
