Fall Is Almost Here

I go a little crazy this time of year in anticipation of my favorite season - Autumn. Soon my cooking hormones will go into overdrive. The weather will finally begin to change - as will the colors outside. My family loves when this mood overtakes me. Soon they will begin to line up waiting for butternut, and acorn squash soups -- apple pies, tarts, and pumpkin bread. Of course this means I'll have to make a trip to my favorite culinary store - Sur La Table - to get a few things, and coincidentally the new catalogue has just arrived.

By the way Sur La Table also has a new baking blog - The Art and Soul of Baking.

Simply fill the base with cold water, and the ceramic container will keep butter fresh and spreadable for up to 30 days, even in the warmest weather.
