fall is for baking.

It was a wonderful weekend. It was a simple weekend.
No plans and no babysitter, just me and the kids, which was exactly what I needed. Friday night cuddles in my bed while diving into our books, an early morning Farmer's Market and a hot chocolate date with Jon. Dinner with my parents and a much needed movie and relaxation time for me on Saturday night. Jon golfed on Sunday and we hung around the house catching up on laundry and play. We tackled the recycle bin and came up with some cool ships for our Star Wars characters and Joshua created his own Halloween statues. Sunday night brought a fabulous family dinner, bath time with Dad, Homeland and Dexter once the little ones were in bed.


And with the feel of autumn in the air comes the scent of cinnamon, spice, pumpkin and apples from my kitchen. It was a perfect October weekend to spend baking and cooking.

Stuffed acorn squash, beet salad, honey wheat bread (that failed), rosemary focaccia, spiced apple pancakes, basil focaccia and apple peanut butter caramel bars.

You could say I was busy, but I enjoyed every single moment of it. I love a peaceful moment in the kitchen while the music softly plays in the background.
