Autumn Indulgences

This is absolutely, positively one of my very favorite indulgences this time of year.

I didn't even like candy corn until I tried it with peanuts and now I can't resist little handfuls of this perfectly sweet and salty combination!

Of course, I also can't resist baking a fresh loaf of pumpkin bread this time of year...or baking it into flowers and trains for a special after school snack!

The other night I savored a warm bowl of butternut squash bisque, and I have already enjoyed two pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks which were divine.

Now if the stores would just start stocking the pumpkin spice coffee creamer.  Where are those little plastic bottles of happiness, anyway?!  I check every single time I go to the store, which let's face it is practically every day...  

Oh, I forgot to mention the pumpkin doughnut from Dunkin' Donuts.  Be still my heart.

What are your favorite Autumn Indulgences?!


  1. I just made brown butter pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Absolutely divine!!

  2. I have happily transitioned from making dinners of fresh, light salads or grilled meats and veggies to making crock pot meals and hearty soups and stews. I just love fall foods!
