Hi foodie friends! Food of the Month Club is back! And hopefully, it will be better than ever. Sorry for the little hiatus, but I had a few distractions here on the homefront. But everything is back to normal and we are pretty settled into our new schedules. Thank you all so much for your patience. I apologize for any inconvenience. I also want to say thank you to everyone who wrote in asking about FOTMC, requesting that it make it's comeback very soon. You wrote in and I listened. I love hearing from you, whether it be in the comments, an email, Facebook, or Twitter. I know I don't always answer in a timely matter, but I am working on it, I promise.
Before I announce the main ingredient for September, I do want to inform you of one small change to the Food of the Month Club. Instead of the month being from the 1st through the 30th, our months will run from the 15th to the 15th. Starting in October, you can expect both the Announcement post for that month, along with the Recipe Round-Up of the previous month to be posted on the 15th.
Now for this month's Food of the Month... (Insert dramatic drumroll here!)
For me, apples have always been synonymous with September and autumn. Not only are they sweet and tart all at the same time, but they're also quite versatile and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. But honestly, all I can think about right now are sweet, baked goodies with lots of cinnamon.
I hope you'll join me this month. And be sure to tune in next week for the July/August Summer Beverage Round-Up.
