So I’ve been getting a lot of great tips lately from Apartment Therapy’s food/kitchen blog, http://www.thekitchn.com, and when I saw this recipe on there I thought I absolutely had to try it – and conveniently, we had everything on hand already!

Well if the weather is not going to cooperate (80 degrees on Wednesday!?), I will bring Fall into our lives via the dinner table.
