Whenever fall rolls around, I'm so excited to eat toasty, hot food again, and go all in with soups or pretty much anything that comes out of an oven. Salads go by the wayside until winter approaches when I'm a little more willing to branch out a bit--not to mention that I am in serious need of some lighter fare due to all the holiday feasting. That said, I don't want the light, crisp salads of summer and spring. I want the colors to be warm and the ingredients to be filling and comforting.
