lovesit: fall treats & recipes
November 1, 2011 Leave a comment
October has always been one of my favorite months- and as much as I absolutely love Halloween, the anticipation of October’s grand finale brings a sense of dread. I know that as soon as the night ends and I wake up the following morning, it’s going to be November and winter is right around the corner. Not that I don’t love winter, but fall is so fleeting in New England, I try to experience as much of it as possible during its short stay. Once October 1st rolls around, I do my best to savor all the traditions autumn has to offer- ie: treats, baked goods and more treats. I love anything pumpkin flavored and these days just about anything edible has been infused with a pumpkin spice or flavoring. Although fall may be coming to a sudden end, I am in no rush to stop baking (or eating) my favorite apple, pumpkin and cider treats. Nor am I in any rush to remove the remaining evidence of my dog Skip’s Halloween costume.
1. These delicious pumpkin cheesecake cupcakes are my new favorite quick & easy party treat. This recipe is available here.
2. Cider Donut’s are really the only donut I’ll go out of my way to have- and since they are only around a few months out of the year there’s nothing to feel guilty about. Unless you decide to start making them a little more regularly. This recipe is available here.
3. Nothing says fall has arrived quite like the perfect slice of apple pie- and no other smell makes your home more cozy and inviting. The recipe for the perfect apple pie is available here.
