There’s something about fall that just makes me feel like cooking.
The darker evenings are so inviting for staying indoors, putting on my cozy clothes after work, and standing in front of the stove to A) cook dinner and B) warm myself up. Fall vegetables have been the stars of many of our dinners lately, as they lend themselves so well to comfort food. I know “comfort food” and “vegetables” aren’t usually seen as compatible terms, but I think they go hand in hand perfectly. Starchy potatoes, sweet and creamy squash, roasted root vegetables that caramelize in the oven… tell me those aren’t pure comfort!
