Welcome to autumn, it’s that time of year where the nights are cooler, the days shorter and the rich colors of the season are upon us. I absolutely love the earthy tones of fall especially, in the gorgeous dahlias grown at Heath.
Storing pear preserves for the winter is an absolute must, they are a delicious treat to serve on the weekends with homemade biscuits. And, I have re-tested my mom’s sweet potato pie recipe by adding Grand Marnier to two of the pies and Limoncello to the others along with a splashes of vanilla.
My taste for the eclectic and unusual extends to choosing tasteful pumpkins that will be placed on the front porch for Halloween. This heirloom variety is the flattened Ghirardelli grown by farmers in our area and some will state these may be the best pumpkin to use for baking pies.

Great pictures that cover the entire gamut of fall favorites. And feel free to bake some Grand Marnier pumpkin pies for the upcoming holidays as they must be delicious.
The addition of Grand Marnier is most delicious and there will be plenty to share for both Thanksgiving and Christmas!!!
Oh boy…………my favorite time of the year. I always look forward to the fall season. Nice pics capturing “the feel” of autumn. Look at those pies!!!!!!!!
I think the pies are the hit of the season!!! They are perfect on crisp nights, served with a dollop of spiked whipped cream and cappuccino’s!!!
