There are a lot of things I love about fall: the leaves changing colors, comfy sweaters, the Thanksgiving holiday, and, of course, all the wonderful seasonal foods. Here in North Carolina, we’ve had a long Indian summer, but the temperature will be diving soon, and I am looking forward to whipping up delicious soups for those crisp days.
Curling up on the couch with a steaming bowl of soup is one of the best ways to warm up on a crisp autumn day. So, when I saw the leaves beginning to fall from the trees, I whipped up this creamy broccoli cheddar soup. It’s loaded with cheese and tender broccoli floating in a velvety cream broth.
As I’m writing this, it’s absolutely pouring rain outside and that makes it the kind of day for Philly cheesesteaks. The kind of day when you just want to curl up with some rainy day comfort food. This popular fast food combo originated in Philadelphia hence the name Philly cheesesteak.

When I was a child, I remember my mom bringing home an unusual fruit one day. It looked a little like an apple but not exactly. She said it was a Chinese apple. I didn’t know it at the time but that was the British term for pomegranates. She was so excited to show it…
Autumn in New York usually means a slight chill in the air, a visit to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard, and afternoon walks to admire the vibrant fall foliage. It doesn’t mean softly falling snow. But this morning I looked out the window only to see that it was snowing. I’m not ready for winter yet! Thankfully, the tiny snowflakes soon turned into rain.
Who doesn’t love a good massage? Well, my kale is loving one right now as I’m getting ready to prepare a delicious kale salad tossed with pistachios, cherry tomatoes, and juicy Kalamata olives. But why am I massaging the kale first? If you’ve ever had a raw kale salad, you might have noticed that the kale was a little bitter and its texture a little coarse. However, if you massage the kale for only about five minutes, it will begin to soften and wilt. This seems to break down its dense cellulose structure leaving it easier to digest and much tastier.

This healthy and delicious lemony marinated zucchini salad is the perfect side dish to bring to a summer cookout or on a picnic! The zucchini is topped with slivers of red onion, crumbled goat cheese, toasted pistachio nuts, Kalamata olives, and crispy bacon. So much tastiness in every bite!
