Fall fruits and vegetables are on my mind right now. Maybe it's all those enticing displays of pumpkins and apples at the grocery store and farmers' market? Here are a few ways to cook with autumn's bounty.

Donna: I could go for one of those donuts right now too...

Tender Branson: Thanks! My mom took it.

We definitely haven't been eating enough donuts lately.

On a different note, I've come to especially appreciate the "You Might Also Like..." feature on Link-o-Rama Fridays because it gives me another chance to look at KC's somber mug.
