Now the only thing left to do is to put up all your bright whites and prepare for the flavors of fall. Apples, Pears, Pumpkin, and Cranberries are some of my favorite foods to enjoy during the fall season. Since there is Pumpkin Spice galore everywhere you turn I try to incorporate the other flavors of fall into our family meal plans.  My husband loves granola. He’s always putting it on top of his yogurt…
