Breakfast at Blue Surf Cafe | Wilmington, North Carolina

Every trip is spent with much patience as I search for non-traditional places to park and stretch our legs. Which means, we spend more time driving. But that's ok, because that's when we find unexpected places like this breakfast nook in Wilmington, North Carolina. We stopped into the Blue Surf Cafe not really knowing what to expect. Breakfast … [Read More...]

Apple Dumplings

It's very simple. Shorter days make me a little old lady. I just want to wrap up in a blanket and read until the sun comes back out to play. It's making my already crazy jam packed busy life speed by that much more rapidly and I am not sure I can tell the weekends from the workdays. BUT things have been pretty awesome. Photographed a wedding … [Read More...]

Chai Pumpkin Spice Thumbprints

pumpkin_chai_cookies_1

Oh boy, have I been holding out on you. Pause, now re-read that last sentence with a liiittle more enthusiasm. Because I'm not lying and the moment I saw these Pumpkin Spice Kisses, I just had to have them. (Then I got them home and had to figure out what to make with them). After a little debate, my answer was to plop those suckers down into … [Read More...]

 So yeah, these cinnamon rolls are all over the internet right now, along with anything else pumpkin.

Pumpkin Maple Stack Cake

Maple_Stack_cake_0339

Last week I got to be a kid again. And it was awesome. My dad and I spent the day in Philly, going to the zoo eating out and seeing a concert. It was a blast. I didn't work, worry about emails, or wonder what was happening on twitter. I was walking around a zoo making sure we didn't miss anything and pouting because the rhino refused to turn around … [Read More...]

  Let's get real, have a little <3 to <3 shall we? My foodies, friends, and fellow bloggers, this one's for you. Lately, things just haven't been the same around here.

Pumpkin Latte Coffee Cake

Pumpkin Latte Coffee Cake from PasstheSushi.com

Normally, I test out one or two new recipes on friends at big holiday gatherings or social events, always forgetting the danger of that until I set the platters down and have my own private lack of Xanax induced freak out.  Instead of prepping and testing some recipes all week for a little upcoming Thanksgiving feast, this year I have been (much … [Read More...]

Pumpkin Pie with Brown Sugar Meringue & a #Pumpkin Recipe Round Up

Pumpkin_Pie_0137

Don't know about you, but I am in serious denial. Denial that Thanksgiving is next week. Denial that Christmas is like 39 days away. Denial that I won't be able to try all the new recipes I had planned for you. Denial that my house needs a top to bottom scrubbing before anyone can set their merry little toes in my doorway this season. We may need … [Read More...]

Caramel Apple Cake

Apple_cake_0002

Just for the record, caramel, apples, and I don't get along very well. Caramel and anything else, no bigs. Caramel and apples and something just goes all sorts of wrong in my kitchen. Caramel ends up everywhere besides where it is supposed to be and usually ends up with me doing a lot of extra cleaning. See hot mess here. Which pretty much sums up … [Read More...]
