Pumpkin-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fall is here. Fi-na-lly. Seriously, this has been the longest summer I can ever remember in Seattle. So hot. Yes. I'm a heat complainer. Don't worry, it's actually a fairly normal condition in the Pacific Northwest. People don't stay living round these parts for sunshine and sandy beaches. I love making pumpkin spiced deliciousness during… Continue reading Pumpkin-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chicken Noodle Soup

Here's the chicken noodle soup I made with my homemade egg noodles. It is full of celery, carrots, onion and chicken. Perfectly homey and delicious. It was incredible. A little tip that I use all the time. At the beginning of most weeks, I poach a few chicken breasts. It’s really easy. Boil broth in… Continue reading Chicken Noodle Soup

French Toast with Spiced Pears

I was given a big bag of pears from my mom last week from the bounty of her orchard. Ok, it's not a real orchard, just a few trees in her yard. But my mom's green thumb is absurd. She's like the plant whisperer. There's so much fruit on her trees, you'd think she had… Continue reading French Toast with Spiced Pears

Foggy Morning Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

Fall is here! This morning I was treated to my favorite weather on earth. Fog. Wonderful, misty, curl up with a book in front of a fire fog. Chilly damp mystery novel fog. I love it. I think it's deep in my English blood to adore a nice foggy morning. Or so my Nanny tells… Continue reading Foggy Morning Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

White Bean and Chicken Chili

Sometimes you learn lessons from your kids that are subtle and nuanced. The munchkins don't even know how insightful they are. Then there's my daughter, who draws you a picture to show you how keen her mind is. And that picture changes you. This happened to me as I was making dinner recently. I've debated… Continue reading White Bean and Chicken Chili

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes & Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Oh how I love love love these cupcakes. The spices, the pumpkin, the cream cheese frosting. It all combines for an absolutely perfect taste explosion. All individually packaged up in a convenient wrapper. Does anyone else think unwrapped cupcake holders look like tutus? No? Just me? Anyway. These are my favorite fall cupcakes - and… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes & Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Candy Corn Cupcakes

It was a gorgeous fall day! We went to the pumpkin patch as a family, enjoyed the brisk foggy morning and the muddy ground. We picked pumpkins and took some photos, then it was home to prepare for Madison's birthday party. She turned 4 back on the 5th, but because of wedding craziness, we held… Continue reading Candy Corn Cupcakes
