Set amidst the sea, mountains, and expansive desert at the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, is beautiful Los Cabos in Baja California. This stunning natural setting is also a hot spot for spas that feature spiritual and indigenous treatments, super-exclusive spas favored by Hollywood jetsetters, and eclectic, holistic, and luxurious spas, including one of the only thalassotherapy spas in North America.
Nothing says fall like warm homemade bread, fresh out of the oven, and the pine nuts and maple syrup in this recipe adds to its fall-like feel.

We love the Spanish touch of saffron.
