As we say farewell to the last of Summer we welcome the Season and smells of Fall. Although we don’t have cool weather, we can still cook and decorate for Fall. The scent of a Pumpkin dessert cooking and a cozy Festive Fall Casserole will surely put you into the spirit of the Season. Our Chicken, Artichoke dish served with a salad will be eaten by your family and guests and you will be thanked for this delicious casserole creation. Gooey, Pumpkin cake served with whipped cream or ice cream and, of coarse, a sprinkle of cinnamon on top will give everyone the feeling of Fall.
