Hello middle-of-the-month, it-finally-feels-like-fall October Saturday to you!

The weather FINALLY broke here and after having an 85-degree day on Wednesday, we were in winter jackets and hats on Joseph’s field trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday morning because it was barely in the mid-40’s, insane!

I’m working on a few new recipes today; what are you up to this weekend? Baking or cooking anything fun?

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!
