I love the fall. It is a time for baking, sweaters, fires and cooler weather. Even though I don’t get to experience the cooler weather here in Texas, I still put on a big comfy sweater as soon as October arrives.
I love these molasses cookies. The perfect hint of spices that remind me of fall. Click here for recipe for Molasses Cookies. It would not be Fall without a pumpkin muffin! These are my favorite! Click here for recipe for pumpkin muffins.
I love when my sister brings me special Halloween treats she knows I will love. How cute are these cupcake toppers?
….My friend also brought over Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter! I feel loved!
What do you do when a sweet friend, who happens to be expecting a baby in August, asks for something made with lemons? You find a lemon loaf recipe of course! I love this sweet treat and I think you will also! Give it a try. You can find recipe here.

We love baking sweets on all occasions and love celebrating our freedom!

Rice Krispie Treats!
I was a little late on July 4th posting…but better late than never, right?
My daughter, Claire, keeps finding recipes she wants to try. That seems to keeps us busy at the store and in the kitchen. While she has changed her mind from wanting to be a chef (at 11 years old) to now wanting to be an event planner…I love seeing her love for food and baking continue! Conversations, laughter and memories are made in the kitchen.
OLD GLORY PIE. Find recipe here. I changed the recipe a bit and used fresh cherries, strawberries and blueberries. YUM!
ZUCCHINI CRUSTED PIZZA
My daughter LOVES Pizza…so she is always sending me links to low calorie Pizza. She found this recipe for Zucchini Crusted Pizza and wanted to give it a try. I was a little skeptical but we ended up really liking the flavor and texture. In fact, my whole family enjoyed! Great idea Claire!
You can make this a little more low calorie by reducing the cheese and the marinara sauce. It will still be very tasty, satisfying and good for your waist line!!
Recipe is under On the Healthy Side at top of page. ENJOY!
..But the Best People Are!
Take a peek at our delightful Tea Party for a dear friend who is retiring…
Great Send off, Great Food, Great Book and Great Quotes.
I think this was a great way to spend the day since it is “Always Tea Time.”
“…Sometimes I have believed 6 impossible things before breakfast”
Pretzels are a must!
And of course you must have a backdrop!
“I can’t go back to yesterday,
I was a different person back then.”
“i’m not crazy…my reality is just different than yours.”
Thankful for friendships, creativity, food, fun, good books and great relationships!
