Happy Friday, friends! John and I are going on a very autumnal adventure this weekend, so I wanted to leave you with my favorite fall recipe. It is a very, very simple one (and I’ve actually shared it before, but it’s worth repeating!). Here’s my rendition of the easiest ever pumpkin chocolate chip muffins:
1) Take a Betty Crocker muffin mix and dump it in a bowl.
2) Add 4 tablespoons pumpkin puree (like Libby’s), a 1/2 cup water with 4 tablespoons removed, and a few healthy shakes of cinnamon. Stir together.
3) Bake for 16 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
P.S. Wedding china in action!

Let me start by saying that I don’t like caramel apples. (I draw the line at sweets that are sticky… so no caramel, toffee, taffy, tootsie rolls, or cow tails for me. Yuck.) However, I find caramel apples very aesthetically pleasing, and they couldn’t be more perfect for the season we’re in right now. So today, five of my favorites – at least from the outside!

How about you? Caramel apples: yea or nay?

I love finding new recipes on Pinterest, I really do. But pretty photos can be deceiving, and it’s often hard to tell if the caption “AMAZING RECIPE!!!” was added by my friend, whose taste I trust, or a pinner she re-pinned from six steps out, who might have terrible taste. Anyway, in case you’ve seen any of the photos below floating around your Pinterest lately and wondered if they were any good, I’m here to vouch for them.
These chocolate chunk pecan cookies in particular = AMAZING. Yes, amazing.
You can find the recipes for all nine of these tasty treats on this aptly-named Pinterest board (the recipes I haven’t tried yet go on this board).
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

YUM. Totally making these this weekend. I’m going to try Mel’s recipe, which is an adaptation of Martha’s (the photo above is from Martha). Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

One of my most favorite fall treats is these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins I discovered last year via Darby (the photo above is hers!). They’re not particularly impressive in the culinary department, but they are delicious and incredibly easy to make. Ready for the recipe? One Betty Crocker chocolate chip muffin pouch + 1/4 cup of pure pumpkin puree (I like Libby’s) + 1/2 cup of water – 4 Tbs. of water + a healthy dash of cinnamon. Mix together and bake in a 400 degree oven! (I do 12 minutes for the mini muffin size!)
