The colors of a Colorado fall are stunning; yellows and golds; Aspens quaking and glistening in the sunshine; all are shining and shimmering as autumn settles in. Do you feel yourself taking in deeper breaths, enjoying the contrast of the changing leaves and the blue sky? I hope so, I hope you hear the whispers of the One who loves you, because YOU are loved, you matter!

This STAUB 5.75 QT DUTCH OVEN is my favorite. It’s great at high heat and perfect for soups, stews, roasts and bread baking!

If you are thinking of all the great breakfasts this bread would compliment, consider; Prosciutto & Gruyere hash brown quiche, or these yummy Mock Eggs Benedict or the breakfast casserole my family goes bonkers over; Chile Relleno Casserole.
