Autumn is settling in. Autumn has settled in, and here I am ready to accept it. I’m also ready to accept the fact that my days in the kitchen are about to dramatically increase (if you can believe that) as my cravings for apple crisp (lovelovelovelovelovelovelove), pumpkin cookies and cranberry treats become harder to ignore. I’m less ready to embrace the way my jeans are tightening around my thighs… or maybe it’s my thighs growing inside my jeans. Either way, the tightness and the sucking in of the tummy seems to be just a part of the season.
What are you up to in the kitchen these days? Here’s some food for thought Yes… I totally just said that.
Mocha Hazelnut Marble Cake. This cake was gorgeous, classy and utterly fine… until I tried to transport it in a fancy cake stand and got this glistening chocolate glaze exactly everywhere. Everywhere. Lesson learned.
Sweet and soft Ginger Chewies. Full of molasses attitude.
Spiced Pear Walnut Cake with a praline walnut glaze. How about I just go ahead and make the glaze and then spoon it into my mouth… forget the cake. This beauty is all about the glaze.
Cinnamon Spice Buns. The dough is spiced. The filling is sugar and spice. There’s butter and glaze. Make this a part of your life please.
Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding. I ate the whole pot. The whole pot. By myself.
Pizza. Homemade pizza. Easy. Not hard. Worth it’s weight in gold and precious stones.
