Burlap Fall Wreath

Fall is here!!  YES! Hello pumpkin spice everything!  Hello Halloween candy!  Hello mums! Hello new wreath!  

I got crafty a few weeks ago and decided to make a new fall wreath. I used up some burlap I had laying around and then just tucked in some clusters of fall foliage, flowers, and glittery acorns, securing everything with the good ole glue gun!

Sweet Potato Brownies With Buttered Maple Glaze TBT

This is one of my all time favorite desserts and as we speak I have a giant sweet potato begging to be morphed into one of these. They are luscious and the perfect fall treat. And this is one of my first attempts at photo styling...doesn't everyone wrap their brownies and tie them with twine?  Enjoy!

*I can't take credit for the recipe but for the life of me I can't remember where I got it. So whoever invented it is my hero.

Yup, you read the title right!  Sweet potato brownies are one of my favorite desserts and I love knowing that the girls are eating sweet potatoes. I know it's not exactly a healthy snack but what can you do?

Easy Fall Decor

Today was a little crisp, a tad chilly, carrying a hint of fall!  It was lovely and I took the opportunity to add a touch of fall to our house!  But I'm not ready to go into the basement and carry up boxes, pack other knick-knacks away, blah, blah, blah. Instead I threw together some really easy and cheap autumn decorations. I intend to add in some pumpkins and apples to it all too. But for now, here is an easy fall decor idea that will add a hint of the upcoming season to your home.

TBT: Pumpkin Fool (Fall Desserts)

It's Throwback Thursday time!  Today I'm featuring an old post from my first year of blogging. In fact, I think it is from my second month or so. The pictures are awful but the recipe is a good one, I promise!  Enjoy!

Pumpkin Fool

No, I'm not talking about being cuckoo for gourds. I'm talking about the dessert. A fool is fruit stirred into whipped cream and it is sublime. This summer I made a strawberry fool for Ellie's party and it was a huge hit!  So I thought I'd take the best parts of pumpkin pie and make a pumpkin fool. It is an easy and yummy fall dessert!

Hi. My Hard Drive Died

Sigh. Jim has it at his work and he's trying to save it but that means I do not have any pictures of any projects I am ready to tell you about!  Drat!  That means I will have to show you other people's until I get my stuff back or take new pictures. I'll be back!
