The Sweet Smell Of Fall

5 Oct

Fall is here & I loooove it! The next few months are my favorite time of the year. The older I get, the more excited I am to get into the fall/winter spirit. I’m already so anxious for Christmas to get here that I can hardly stand it. I’m jumping ahead of myself…. fall. Leaves changing, chilly/crisp weather, & the smell of all kinds of seasonal goodies baking in the oven. I love to bake! I like to bake more than I like to cook. I can remember tackling the hardest baking projects as a young teenager. My mom is such a great cook, but doesn’t bake. She doesn’t work well with precise cooking (just try asking her for a recipe… “a little bit of this, a lot of that, taste, add….” She eye balls everything!). So needless to say, she was always impressed when I would successfully bake pies from scratch… from pie crust to filling. It’s been a while since I’ve baked a homemade apple pie. I try to keep it a fall tradition. So to get into the spirit…..

As the pie was cooking, Brian looked at me & said, “if only you could take a picture of the smell!” As good as it looks on the screen, the best part was the smell that filled my house. No Yankee Candle needed  🙂

    That looks tasty. My wife also much prefers fall/winter. She also likes baking all the seasonal goodies as well “cute sweater weather”.
