Things are looking VERY gorgeous around here. the leaves, the air, the smell – It’s my absolute favorite month.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!

This weekend the boyfriend and I made our 2nd annual trek up to Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, NY. The place is so beautiful and an essential on my Autumn to-do list. I adore walking around the trails that weave throughout the 80 acre farm, pastures and woodland. My favorite part might be the simple fresh fare from the Blue Hill Cafe and stopping into the charming farm store.

After having the Kale and Cheddar scone from the cafe (see picture above),  I was compelled to make a version in my own kitchen, using fresh Kale from my boyfriend’s garden. I followed this recipe and introduced very finely chopped fresh broccoli to bolster the veggie goodness. I paired these savory scones with fresh vegetable soup for yesterday’s dinner, and it was divine!

Oh Fall season how I love you!! Fall is always a time of year that I look forward to because of how colorful everything gets and how productive I feel and how I get to wear loose clothes and piles of scarves without feeling like I am intentionally covering up my body which is slipping into an “out of shapeness” that the winter inevitably brings. hem hem

I can’t resist a night tucked into a fall themed dinner and the cold weather that is enjoyed with a hot toddy, seasonal beer or wine. Any excuse to get cozy in my squashed chintz armchair and read a good book and not go out, is one that i’ll take!

A fall themed dinner shared with loved ones. I ❤ a good festive table setting!

Essentials of fall table styling: Warm scented candles, decorative pumpkins, fall colored bowls and plates and a nice bold red wine !

A gooey and deliciously, perfect French Apple Tart. I used Ina Garten’s recipe that can be found here. It’s easy AND looks beautiful

A beautiful cat named misty whom I just enjoy photographing here. No particular relevance to Fall here! don’t hate

Fall to me always means reading outside with a blanket and a pumpkin spiced iced coffee

What are your favorite moments of Fall?

Thanks for stopping by =)
