Well it is that time of the year again when I seem to find myself retreating indoors to the comfort of the stove top and oven, yesterday it was pumpkin scones and pumpkin and bacon galette. There seems to be something about baking that coincides with the arrival and on-set of Autumn that is eternally comforting to me.
It always takes me time to adjust to the new seasons, even though it was 16º yesterday (not autumnal weather) I do now find myself landed in Autumn - Beautiful Autumn with your vibrant colours, smokey scents, mystery and magic.
