Caramel Frosted Zucchini Bread


Before we get on to the delicious zucchini bread below, it’s time for another quick round of Diggin’ It Tuesday. No lie, fall weather. It’s 66 degrees F outside right now. I’m in heaven. My Tameron 18-270mm lens, because it lets me get all up close and personal from far away. Not a professional level lens. There’s a lot more noise in the pictures than I would like, but it was really dark and for the price you can’t beat it. I know I have included a link to Amazon, but please, always buy your photography equipment from local stores. […]

Snapshot Saturday: DIY Lace Pumpkins


Well, it’s not really a snapshot. It’s more of a none step by step tutorial. I saw this killer pumpkin on everyone’s favorite time sink (the same reason this post went from 5 minutes to 35 minutes…) Ok, back to the pumpkin. DIY: Lace Pumpkin Get yourself A pumpkin (I got one of those insanely over priced fake ones from the craft store – never again) 1/2 yard lace (this was way to much for my size pumpkin, but its an awkward shape and I am not down with exact measurements outside of baking – and sometimes not when I’m baking either) Spray adhesive Old newspaper […]

Caramel Apple Cake


I went and did it. I’ve broken every one of my seasonal rules that keep me from getting to far ahead of myself (or like I will be in early to mid November) too excited about the upcoming season and events. I have rules about not changing the candles in the house from sunshine and buttercups to pumpkins and leaves. Rules about not wearing boots and making sure to get every moment of flip flop wearing weather in. Rules about not decorating, not fantasizing, certainly not shopping, and not cooking out of season. But I went and did it. The […]

Spiced Pear Cake


Fall is finally here and it welcomed itself in to town with one hell of a storm last night. It’s 9 million degrees outside and doesn’t feel like fall at all – but woot! It’s finally here! I don’t think I have ever anticipated a season so much before. Its not so much the fact that its fall – its what that means. Fall means pumpkins, falling leaves, crisp nights, hearty foods and soon (haha – yes, this is where you can all mock me) Christmas!   Yep, it’s time for my holiday harvesting booty to be in full swing […]
