Sitting here on our deck, with a foo foo carmely coffee, cool weather, steady rain and the dabber sitting next to me. This is my happy place. So good. (I might also be watching the return of Danielle Staub on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but I feel like that cheapens the experience. So just keep that between you and me. K? Thanks.)
More of these fall like days are happening and it’s October so I’m off and running with my favorite fall desserts. And this one is good. Really good. I love an apple brown sugar type combo and then add a little toffee to the mix to give it that extra frolicking-through-the-leaves feeling. So good.
Anyone else have what they want their fall to look like and then what it actually is? In my head, my fall days are spent in cute boots and scarves, carrying a coffee and strolling through a pumpkin field. In reality, I am in jogger sweatpants and a tshirt, taking Leah on a walk and wondering if she needs a jacket and buying pumpkins from a mom and pop stand. It may not be out of a magazine, but it’s still a nice little fall.
The one thing that is constant though is my love of Fall food and desserts. Love. My absolute favorite time of year. These apple toffee bars are always a huge hit and a nice escape from the pumpkin overload. And again, this frosting is my favorite. Pretty sure I’ve put it on 9 out of 10 of the last things I’ve made. Not even sorry.
