Fall Favorites – Soups, Salads and Main Dishes

Hey! Happy Fall! In Southern California, Fall doesn’t really exist. This time of year the weather is crazy hot, so while everyone else is talking about the beautiful leaves changing and the cooler weather, we are just broiling! So, honestly, Fall isn’t really my favorite season, but I do love Fall food. So I’ve compiled a list of a few of our Fall favorites to share with you. Enjoy!

(Looking through these old photos made me realize the huge improvement in the quality of my photos- just look at the difference between this Bruschetta Chicken photo and the infinitely better picture of the Kale Salad at the very beginning of the post. It’s amazing the difference that a little experience makes 🙂  -Jordan)
