It doesn't seem right talking about fall already. In sunny LA, we have warm weather well into September and October, and I suppose into January and February, and most months in between. So I really judge the change of season by the change of seasonal ingredients. I consider pumpkin to be a big fall staple, so I folded them into these sweet potato pumpkin fritters, for a vegan and gluten free treat.
"Paris is always a good idea." Audrey Hepburn had it right. That's why I chose to live there almost five years ago. After returning to Los Angeles from my time abroad, I was home for less than one year when I found myself back in Paris for nearly two months. It started as a three-week trip, but one macaron led to another, and a very generous friend allowed me, or made me, stay even longer. You could imagine the arm twisting there.
