The Fall Colors Contest is in full swing at Apartment Therapy, and we here in the Kitchen are certainly not going to be left out. This is a brilliant time of year for food: orange pumpkins, russet apples and mountains of green and yellow squash are at the markets. Cool weather turns us towards golden roast chickens with white, creamy mashed potatoes, and the prospect of even colder weather to come sends me running for the warm espresso-brown of chocolate cupcakes. We'll be posting recipes and inspiration to help bring more of this color into the kitchen. If you see something particularly bright and beautiful, send us a photo! What colorful things are you cooking this month?
