From our shop in Cambria to your home kitchen
The days of summer are in the rear view mirror. Kids have gone back to school and Cambrians are gearing up for Pinedorado Days and  the month long Scarecrow Festival in October. That means it's time for pumpkin spice lattes and everything Fall. This month we have 2 great Fall recipes to share. First our Chai Banana Bread made with our David Rio Tiger Chai Tea. A deliciously moist and spicy banana bread that you'll be making the entire season. We also have cocktail hour ready for you with our Pumpkin Margarita recipe. These margaritas will be a hit at your next dinner party or gathering. 

As always, all of us here at A Matter of Taste thank you for your continued support and we enjoy seeing each of you at the store. Happy Harvest Season.

eat, drink & be merry,
