Is it cold where you live?  It has been in the single digits for highs here this week.  Very unlike normal Colorado weather, and I can honestly say…I do not like it one bit!  I am not made the for the cold, despite the fact that I grew up in the Mid-West.  I am always cold, huddled under a blanket, lots of layers, and most likely with a hot drink in hand.  I just do not like winter.  Next week we are back into the 40’s, so at least this is relatively short lived.  But less than a week ago we were 70 degrees, so it is quite the shock to the system.

Are you ready for the holiday baking season? It is pretty much upon us.  I have to admit, I am not quite ready.  This year has just gone by far too quickly, I want it to slow down a little!  But today, I am here with a special treat for you.  I have mentioned Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen before.  She is one of my very dear friends in this blogging world.  We were roommates at a conference earlier this year, and I was able to visit her when I was in Ohio a few weeks ago.  So this post is kind of special to me today.  In case you didn’t know Katrina came out with a cookbook (The Biscoff Cookie & Spread Cookbook)!!!  She worked so hard on this book, and it is gorgeous and so full of great recipes.

Candy Bar Pie - a fun use of that leftover Halloween candy

I hope that everyone had a great Halloween!  My son had lots of fun trick or treating with a couple of his friends.  The weather wasn’t to bad, it was near 60 during the day.  So walking around was pretty comfortable.  Of course today it is almost 70 out!  My son’s basketball season started last week, so at least he ran around for while yesterday to burn off all of the candy that he ate.  I on the other hand, and just doing my best not to raid his bag!

Fun Halloween Treats - a round up of great Halloween ideas

Are you ready for Halloween?  It is less than a week away!!  We still need to carve our pumpkins, figure out who we are trick or treating with and where, and I still have to make a rope belt.  But we are close.  Darn all the last minute stuff!  I was really hoping to have our pumpkins carved by this weekend, but we have just been so busy.  I am actually in Ohio right now, last weekend my in-laws were here, and my parents were visiting before that.   Hopefully one night this week we can get it done.  We often do them on Halloween night.  But my husband’s company does a fun trick or treat thing for the kids right after school, and my son wants to go this year.  So time to get my butt in gear, and get some stuff done!

Today I am sharing with you a few of my favorite Halloween ideas.  Cute brownies, cookies, drinks, and snacks.  Great for a Halloween party at school, the day of, or just for fun this week!  Hope you find something that you enjoy!

Mini Caramel Apples


Mini Caramel Apples - so fun and great for fall!

Mini Caramel Apples - so fun and great for fall!

I am so excited that fall is finally here.  At least, I hope it is going to stick around.  We have had a very hot September, but this week things have cooled down and we are in the 70’s all week.  I am wearing jeans, because I can!  I feel soup weather, fresh bread, and sweaters are just around the corner.  I love fall, I just wish it stuck around longer before winter came.  The nice thing about living in Colorado as opposed to the Mid West, is it does stick around just a little bit longer.  Halloween is usually not crazy cold here, like I remember it being some years when I was a kid.  But all too soon there will be that dreaded white stuff on the ground, and we will all be complaining again.

Caramel Apple Pie Bars


Caramel Apple Pie Bars {Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts}

Caramel Apple Pie Bars - shortbread crust, baked apples, struesel and caramel...what is not to love!

Oh fall, how I love you!  Apples are all over the stores, the farmers markets, and my friend’s trees right now.  So I am going to wait just a bit before we jump into pumpkin, and give the apple the spot light.  I have a friend who has a few apple trees in her yard, and this year her trees exploded with apples.  I said I would taken any and all apples she couldn’t find a home for.  I see Apple Blondies and probably Apple Hand Pies in my future!  Plus, fresh apple cider.  We have a cider press from when my husband was a little boy.  So every year, we try to set aside an afternoon to make fresh cider.  It is so good, and such a fun process.  I am sure he will get tired of it some day, but at age 9 my son still thinks it is cool.

S'mores Brownies - rich, chocolatey, heaven!

The temperatures are finally starting to cool off in Colorado, at least for the next week.  It was 95 degrees yesterday, so you really never know.  But I am taking advantage of the 70 degree temps, and turning on the oven to do some baking.  Are you ready for apples and pumpkin?  I am craving apples, cinnamon, and the flavors of fall.  As soon as the calendar changes to September, I am ready for summer to be over and to move on.  Fall is my favorite season.  The colors, the temperatures, and the foods; I just love it all!
