There’s something so special about the fall/winter food season. Nothing beats slowly simmered soups, cheesy Swiss delights like fondue or raclette, freshly baked crusty bread dipped in said cheese dream, cinnamony-spiced everything, creamy pumpkin pie spice lattes or the rich flavors of pumpkin gratins (Kim, yours was d e l i c i o u s last night.)
Added bonus: All of these foods will make your home smell amazingly cozy for daysss. OK, maybe not the cheesy ones, but this pear torte for sure will make your home smell su-pear sweet.
