A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
September is one of our favorite months at Mood of Living, as the summer heat coolly transitions into the breezes of fall. With the bracing air comes a sense of renewal and new beginnings, an invocation of serenity and vitality. The yellowing leaves and bending boughs are a perfect frame for a season of new adventures and discovery.
Perhaps one of the best things about September, and fall in general, is the abundance of produce perfect for heart- and home-warming recipes. September brings crisp Asian pears, creamy butternut squash, earthy eggplant, and juicy plums. It’s time to move away from the grill and inside to the oven; this melt-on-your-tongue Rooibos Poached Pear Tart by Golubka Kitchen is an indulgent way to dust off your baking skills.
This is a month of promise. As the shifting weather marks a slow yet poignant transition, open yourself to the moment and approach the change with vigor and enthusiasm.
