I’m upset. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that a lot of people were beginning to pin recipes on Pinterest that had to do with pumpkin, apples and other fall-type recipes.
I love pumpkin. I love apples. Pumpkin and apples are probably my second favorite food combination right after… you guessed it, chocolate and peanut butter! So why, you ask, am I upset?
Because I’m not ready to let go of summer!! Noooo, I can’t do it. I can’t let go. If I admit that summer is slowly fading then that only means fall is coming and close behind is… the dreaded winter. Oh sure, it’s great to dress up in cute little scarves and boots and wool mittens, but let’s not forget about the COLD. I don’t know about your husband, but mine disturbingly enjoys the cold. He keeps the thermostat on lock down and I’m forced to endure 68 degree temperatures inside my own home!
So I really wanted to bake something this weekend that would scream summer, like a lemon cheesecake or a nice berry pie, but after much coaxing from my hubby I decided to give in and accept the inevitable. But hey, it worked out because a new season means new clothes, right? OF COURSE! So I got to go shopping and ended up with a super cute pair of leather riding boots… and a couple more things. (Sorry
bank account! Kevin!)
Anyways, in the spirit of new shoes and the encroaching fall season, I baked a pumpkin apple spice cake with a yummy brown sugar glaze. Try it out and let me know what you think!
What do you think? Are you ready for fall yet?
