The leaves turn red and the weather cold, and I seem to have my cooking mojo back – these days, when the rain is drumming on the windows, I take comfort in the smells and textures of cooking a pot of spicy soup or baking an apple pie. And judging from the images in the Mobile Monday pool these days, many of you seem to be thinking along the same lines. I hope you are all enjoying the comforts of autumn!
