No, I have not disappeared completely from blogging.
Yes, I have been baking…without posting the results.
Part of that is pregnancy laziness, busyness and the other part is because I’ve been going back to some of my old favorites and making what I already know I LOVE — um, and crave. There are plenty of delicious fall sweet treats to indulge in, that’s for sure!
So, to save you from searching through the blog for something seasonally appropriate, here are a few of my fall favorites:
PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BREAD…Make it in big loaves or lots of little ones to share with your friends!
PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BARS…almost like the bread, but different enough to try as well. I’ve already made three double batches of this in the past month and wherever it goes, it GOES fast! Another double batch is going to the Halloween party at church on Saturday. These are a MUST bake.
APPLE PIE BARS…I took these to a friend’s baby shower not long ago and they were a hit. Think apple pie without all the work. Definitely treat it as apple pie though and serve warm with plenty of vanilla ice cream!
CARAMEL APPLE BARS…Definitely different than the other apple bars, but if you love that heavenly combination of apple and caramel as much as I do, this recipe is definitely for you.
PUMPKIN SPICE BUNDT CAKE WITH BUTTERMILK ICING…Yum. Make it a day in advance and it will taste even better the next day.
Do your family or anybody else who gets to eat your treats a favor: warm up your oven, soften your butter and at least pick one. You’ll love whatever you choose!
My list of recipes to try is growing faster than I can keep up with! Hopefully I’ll get to at least one or two before fall turns into winter. Maternity leave can’t come soon enough!
