Where did October go? Part of me felt like fall would never come but finally, it arrived. Days have been cooler and nights even more so. Walking into the house last night smelling wood stoves burning, made the autumn is here feeling that much stronger. My cooking has changed the last couple of weeks with all the roots and squash coming in. Nothing feels more comforting right now than the sweetness of a squash roasted in ghee.
If you’re like us, spending more time in the kitchen making soups and comfort food is a must this time of year. I always feel more grounded and in my heart when I’m working with my hands making food. Cooking helps to soothe some of those anxious feelings I have when there’s a seasonal transition. Even though I don’t have the most perfect kitchen, I feel grateful for our little space once I start chopping and getting something simmering on the stove.
Here are a few of our favorite recipes we like to revisit as the cooler weather calls for the nourishment of broths, soups and stews and warm tonics. We also made a little playlist to get you in the mood for cooking and spending time in the kitchen. Hope you enjoy it, listen here.
