  1. This book looks amazing! You’ve been busy!
    I love the fall leaves changing and the cooler weather!! Plus all the yummy soups!

  2. Mmm mmm! Those recipes look mighty tasty.

    Favorite things about autumn: The colors, the relative cool temperatures, and the quiet. My neighbors throw a lot of boisterous pool parties during the summer, so when autumn arrives, I can reclaim the serenity of my back yard. :)

  3. I like the way the light is during the day as it comes to us here in the Pacific Northwest through an almost continuous layer of clouds. The sun comes in at an angle. and there is lots of orange and brown in the environment and the air itself seems to be slightly tinged with brown. I love this and I love what feels to me like the evergreen trees such as Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar enjoying the rain and wet.

  4. Eliza your new book looks amazing!
    I can’t wait to get this and try some of your always delicious recipes.
    Fall is a perfect season in Colorado. Cool evenings where the outdoor fire pit can be used and the warm (not hot) sunny days.
    The changing of leaves and smells of the harvest spice everything! It truly is a favorite time of year.

    • I love the cooler weather, decorating, and the transition of cooking fall inspired meals! Today I made two recipes from your Berries book and me and my husband LOVED it so much!

  5. My favorite thing about autumn is that I know seed catalogs will be coming in soon. I am not a cold weather fan and autumn is only here for a blink of an eye then winter comes. For me winter is a lot of pain. I do love pumpkin and make many dinners and tasty treats with it so would love to win the book. God’s blessing

  6. Oh man, I love most of it! The cooler weather (the heat really got to me this year), beautifully spiced food, apple things (especially cider!), pumpkin things, crunchy leaves, crisp blue skies!

  7. I love that you can finally bake bread and other goodies again without heating your house up unbearably! Running through fallen maple leaves is a close second!

  8. Eliza, your cookbook is grabbing my heart
    I am a pumpkinphile—or is it pumpkinophile? I adore all recipes involving pumpkins ! So proud of your beautiful work. Woot woot!

    My favorite things about autumn are the cooler temperatures (if they ever come) which invigorates me, the trees changing many colors which inspires me, the angle of the sun (which seems to turn the world a golden glow) and pumpkins which are the best gift of the garden this time of year !!!

    Btw I make a cream of pumpkin soup from roasted pie pumpkin varietals and organic Thai coconut cream… which is delicious you’d love it!

  9. The best things about Fall… the smell of fresh leafs in air, warm pies and chili’s in my house and watching football on Sundays!

  10. What I love to reminisce about the autumn season are the following: the color change of tree leaves to red, orange, brown, the cooler temperature and the food associated with this season. You don’t really see this in SoCal, or where I’m at.
