I’m currently sitting at my kitchen table, gazing out the window at our wooded hillside and I’m thrilled to report that I can see every different shade of green, yellow, orange and red starting back at me. The leaves changing are one of my favorite parts of fall and one of the main reasons I don’t think I could ever live somewhere full-time that didn’t experience all four seasons.

Do you go apple picking this time of year? I’ve never done it, but every time I scroll through my Facebook feed, I’m inundated with pictures of friends with their kids traipsing through orchards and collecting buckets of apples. If you’re overrun with apples, or are just looking for a great fall recipe, this classic apple crisp will win over your fall-loving heart in mere seconds.

The Weekend Dish: 10/22/2016


Happy weekend to you!

All of a sudden, we’ve been totally thrust into fall weather… it poured here for nearly two days straight and we have a high in the FORTIES today. That’s sheer insanity, but I will most definitely take it. I’m ready for cozy sweatshirts and big blankets! What do you have going on this weekend? Tell me your plans! I’ll be hunkered down at home trying to soothe a newborn and entertain a toddler 🙂

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
