Beti’s Reflections

As the leaves began to turn and the air grew crisp, I found myself wandering through a bustling farmer’s market in the heart of Paris. Amidst the vibrant colors of autumn produce, a humble pumpkin caught my eye. Inspired by this quintessential fall ingredient and my love for American French cuisine recipes, I decided to create a breakfast dish that would encapsulate the essence of both cultures. Thus, the Autumn AM Awakenings recipe was born.
