Quasi Autunno… Almost Autumn…

Autumn is almost here,  and hopefully our hot humid weather,  which can give us spectacular sunsets,   will give way to cooler temperatures to go along with the subtle changes that  let me know that Fall is near.  In the garden,  the pumpkin plants are big,  the pumpkins however,   are still small… I will keep my fingers crossed,  meanwhile,  in the kitchen,  the flavors of Autumn are beginning to show up… fruits that remind me of the new season… Poached Pear Dumplings,  A Rustic tart with my Fig Jam and Pears,  with Cream Cheese,  and topped with a buttery crumble,  and  Chicken Cacciatore,  just like dad taught me to make at the restaurant… made into a pot pie.  Comfort foods …


  1. Oh Mary, what incredible dinners you fix your loved ones! I am not hardly cooking at all lately - I am so inspired but lack the energy. You are amazing, seriously.

    By coincidence I posted about a Ruby Pear Tea Party last. when I saw your incredible pear shaped dessert it made me smile big-time. : - ) Hugs.

  2. Wow Mary, what a treat! Love this! Your family is so lucky. Your meals look and sound fabulous. Thank you so much for your sweet visit and kind words. One day at a time.

  3. che meraviglia Mary, bellissimooooo...
    baci simona

  4. E' una lotta decidere se mi emoziona di più la tua cucina o il tuo giardino... impossibile decidere, sono entrambi meravigliosi!

  5. The tarts look sooooo good, Mary, and did you know that pears used to be my favorite fruit when I was a young girl? What a gorgeous sunset. Your posts are always filled with so much beauty, Mary, and they just make me smile every time. : )

    love, ~Sheri
