Autumn in Wisconsin means delicious locally grown apples. Used in baking as well as savory recipes, and especially nice in apple brandy. Nothing is prettier than this calvados from France, where they have been making this spirit for generations. Apple brandy is an amazing flavor enhancer in anything made with apples—applesauce, apple crisp, apple pie…even savory stews. (And make sure to sip some as you enjoy the finished recipe!)

'Tis the season to focus on beautiful and inspirational cookbooks, and to indulge in quality kitchen bakeware and accessories for all your entertaining to come. Ceramic bakeware can be visually appealing and useful. These dishes from Portugal can go from oven to freezer to table. Practical beauty.

Get cozy and breathe in the scents and sights of the best time of year in Wisconsin.
