There is nothing quite like the smell of cinnamon and brown sugar wafting through the air and making your kitchen smell like a bakery.


In less than an hour you can make and bake 24 of the most delicious muffins for you and your family. The aroma in my kitchen while they were baking and cooling on the racks was intoxicating. I am totally in love with this recipe for Carrot Nut Muffins.

{Make-ahead} Freezer Apple Pies

Yum
Freezer pie shells and pie dough saves time in making some Freezer Apple Pies that can be thawed and served or warmed through in a low oven any time you get a craving.

I love crisp apples in the fall. There's nothing like visiting a local orchard and being apple to pick your own apples, surrounded by the beautiful colors that Mother Nature presents. I recently became a brand ambassador for a grower in Pennsylvania and received a case of apples and other delicious stone fruits. My first post is not officially due until later this month and I needed to start using the apples lest they go bad. A request for apple pie came from my husband.

Creamy, Dreamy Soups

Yum
"Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, and awakens and refines the appetite" AUGUSTE ESCOFFIER (The King of Chefs)
The best things in life are those that comfort us like a warm blanket on a chilly night. For me that is what homemade soup does. There really is something "feel good" about a pot of soup made with love.

Stir Fry Vegetables with Plum Sauce

Yum
Flavorful plum sauce encases stir fried vegetables to create an exquisite Asian style dinner!

In menu planning prior to my last grocery shopping, I realized we had not had a stir fry meal in ages. Knowing what we had from our own garden to use I began picking up some of my favorites to stir-fry. Sno peas, on sale mushrooms and of course our crunchy favorite Bok Choy. In addition I made sure I hit the International aisle to look for baby corn.
