Hooray for Fall!

     It's hard to believe that it is once again Tuesday! I thought the days went by quickly this summer, but now that the kids are back in school and I am working, it seems that someone has pressed the fast forward button.  What I need to do is press pause and find the time to enjoy my absolute favourite time of year~ Fall. I love everything about it; the cool crisp air, the cooler weather that calls for cozy sweaters, the beauty in the leaves that turn the most gorgeous shades of red, yellow and orange, and of course the glorious scents of fall baked goods. Apple and pumpkin desserts are my favourtie, both to bake and savour.  There is just something about the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg that brings warmth to my heart.  And of course, there is Thanksgiving... a time to show gratitude and become mindful of the good in our lives. 

      As you may know, I love to bake for others. The pleasure for me is in the giving.  This week, I am going to do my best to find that pause button and create some time to relish the delicious harvest of fall and create some delightful fall desserts.

  Let's celebrate this wonderful season!
