Mouth Watering Fall Harvest Recipes from Our Readers

We had some delicious looking submissions to our call for fall recipes. Cie Bond, an artist and volunteer at the Levy Center raised gardens, went further and sent us a recipe incorporated into a fun collage. We hope you’ll find inspiration from these tasty recipes. Maybe they’ll find their way into your Thanksgiving spread this year.
