As the season change, it's fun to celebrate the start of a new school year and the changing farmers market produce. This fall, I invited some of our friends from our children's school to come over for a casual dinner before the temperatures dropped too much to sit outside. I decided to base the menu around warm, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern spices, and I made large platters that were easy to share. The night was beautiful; it felt so good to be sitting at a candle lit table with friends that we've come to love so much.

I'm craving something ...

Dreaming of a vacation? Yep, me too!
