This cool, crisp weather that has fallen over the QC area as of late evokes feelings of comfort, warmth & nostalgia. Typically, the flavors that accompany these cooler temps consist of warm spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, cayenne & paprika as well as any types of dry herbs that will last through the cold, winter months. Pumpkin anything & everything is also a given - especially seeing the popularity of the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
