Tender Branson is the nom de plume of the innovative website Write.Click.Cook.Listen, where you can find original vegetarian recipes, great food photos, and music playlists to listen to while you're cooking. An elementary school teacher by day, a food-music genius by night, Tender's going big. This is his second contribution to our Picture Show, and we're always happy to have him on board - even if it does make our tummies rumble. Enjoy the show...

These pictures feature fall fashions in the food world. With a new emphasis on buying from farmer's markets, I have really come to experience the foods that each season has to offer. This fall it has been a lot of comfort foods such as soup and pasta being meshed with harvest flavors like cranberry, squash, zucchini, pumpkin and hominy. The result has been meals that are rich in flavor and depth without the heaviness in the stomach that typically accompany fall menu items.

    those zucchini bites look great - anyway to show the rest for a mobile?

    1. We're working on a solution for devices that don't accept flash (and so can not view the slideshow). From the main page, if you click on "continue reading" below the slideshow, you will now find thumbnails of each of the pictures of the show. We're still having trouble formatting those, but we'll continue working on the problem.

      Thanks for your interest!

  4. Those stuffed sweet potatoes look amazing!
