The last few months are my favorite time of year. I live in Chicago so the change in weather is something I’m used to. I use to dislike it but as I get older I love it. The change in weather means there’s always something to look forward to. I love to see the leaves change colors, for the leaves to fall, watch scary movies, and best of all gather around the table with loved ones. In addition, I look forward to planning for the year ahead and making warm delicious recipes for myself and those looking for plant-based recipes for the holidays.
