I love living in the South but one thing I've always wanted to participate in is the Northern tradition of apple picking. Yes, we have great summer peaches and blackberries here in the South but there is something about the crisp fall air and the idea of picking apples with your family that makes me, well, a little jealous.
I can not help but put pumpkin in everything this time of year! Pound cake is a versatile dense cake that really lets the addition of seasonal ingredients shine.
For my birthday last weekend I wanted to make a fun signature cupcake inspired by fall. My favorite autumn treat is a caramel dipped apples so naturally I knew exactly where to start.
Thanksgiving is next week and I can't stop craving pumpkin. We've been buying a bushel of apples at the Farmer's Market every Saturday so VOILA!, this Pumpkin Apple Cake was born!
Everyone loves Williams-Sonoma's Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Quick Bread. I mean, what says fall more than the smell of pumpkin bread coming from your kitchen?
Last week I brought you the most unhealthy, most delicious Sourdough Bread Brown Sugar Pecan Sticky Buns EVER. While they ARE irresistible, they ARE NOT the best practical option for a healthy start to your day. Breakfast doesn't have to be boring though. These Whole Wheat Flax Seed Pumpkin Waffles with Apples and Cinnamon are not only a good-for-you breakfast that you won't feel guilty about, but also full of seasonal flavors.
Thank you to everyone that came out to my Pie Party Workshop at Tin Cottage last night! I had such a blast meeting all of you, signing books, talking party tips and sharing pie with you. With over 10 of my favorite pies on display, everyone seemed to have a different favorite ... pecan, pumpkin, blackberry, blueberry hand pies, chocolate pudding jar pies and these Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies—my new seasonal fave!
Now that's it's officially fall, it's time for squash to make it's big debut. Butternut, spaghetti, acorn ... let the fun begin!
Sweet, salty, chocolatey, nutty goodness—These Mini Salted Caramel Pecan Fudge Pies are not messing around. They are pure goodness. Every bite.
I'm not biased when it comes to pie. I've never met a pie I didn't like. That's why when I decided to throw a PIE PARTY with my good friends at StyleBlueprint.com, I wanted it to be all kinds of rustic chic. And, boy was it! Just think—a farm table in the middle of the woods covered in all different kinds of pies, wine and cider, and rustic winter decor surrounded by your favorite friends. Are you are starting to picture the wonderfulness a Pie Party can bring? Stroll over to StyleBlueprint.com today and check out all the beautiful photos and how-to's.
When williamsonsource.com asked me to guest blog a fall recipe, I jumped at the chance to create something sweet and totally irresistible.
It's time for my second installment of my monthly "Martha Challenge" where I choose 4 things out of the current issue of Martha Stewart Living to do and write about here (check out the September issue challenge HERE). This month I thought that I would break it into 4 separate posts so you can follow along throughout the week. First, we start with something sweet because who doesn't like dessert first?
With the Labor Day weekend behind us and (more importantly) Starbucks serving their Pumpkin Spice Latte, fall is upon us. The mornings are feeling cooler, the days are getting shorter and I find myself fighting the urge to dip apples in caramel and buy mums at Lowe's. I've already been looking up pumpkin flavored baking recipes in preparation!
