Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Scotchies

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Scotchies

During the fall, people who haven’t baked all summer turn on the oven and stock up on flour. It’s a season to bake cakes and pies – which are delicious, but which also aren’t all that easy to eat when you’re looking for a treat that you can snack on around the house. Cookies are always a good option when it comes to snackable sweets, ... Read More »

Nestle Tollhouse Pumpkin Spice Chips, reviewed

Pumpkin spice is the flavor of fall, so I wasn’t surprised to see that Nestle released some limited edition TollHouse Pumpkin Spice Baking Chips this season as a neat way to spice up your holiday baking. I assumed that flavors like cinnamon, ginger and cloves would be highlighted in these chips, so I was surprised to get a whif of freshly baked pumpkin pie when ... Read More »

I love carving pumpkins around Halloween. The carving itself is a lot of fun and it is very rewarding to see your work light up for the first time.

Apple Pie Scones, on the other hand, sound like a great breakfast option. These were baked by Wild Wild Whisk and they are stuffed with a ... Read More »

Caramel Apple Oreos, reviewed

Caramel apples are a fantastic fall treat, with a delicious combination of crispy, juicy apples and sticky, buttery caramel. I use the combination of the two flavors in all kinds of baked goods, including mini cakes, and even in drinks, like Salted Caramel Apple Cider. Since caramel and apples are such a good match, it’s not surprising that I’m not the only one who decided ... Read More »

Salted Caramel Apple Mini Bundt Cakes

Salted Caramel Apple Mini Bundt Cakes

Candied apples were never my cup of tea. The contrast between the sweet exterior and the fresh apple always seemed too one dimensional to me. Caramel apples, on the other hand, deliver a wonderful contrast between crisp, juicy, sweet-tart apples and rich, soft, buttery caramel that is perfectly indulgent. I often make them in the fall, as the summertime heat can make the caramels too ... Read More »
