Autumn Favorites

 imageWelcome 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.

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.

Stay stylish,
