Letter from the editor

I can’t believe…

It’s almost the end of 2022! The weather is changing and my air conditioning is beginning to get a much needed break, thankfully. I love the fall and all of the comfort foods that come with it, let me know if you have a favorite. A few of mine are any braised meats or slow cooked casseroles. They’re always perfect with a side vegetable and of course creamy mashed potatoes. I hope your winter months are filled with fun and laughs in the kitchen. 

Stay safe friends and thanks as always for being a part of my Foodness Gracious family!
