Sweet potatoes are wonderful, aren’t they darlings? I love to experiment with recipes, but favorites will always include a good sweet potato casserole and basic mashed sweet potatoes. It’s comfort food with a twist, and a great way to use the 3 or 4 potatoes you happen to find *after* you buy more sweet potatoes at the store. Not that this is personal experience speaking or anything. The good news is, should you find yourself with extra sweet potato casserole or mashed sweet potatoes, I have a fabulous leftover remake recipe for you in these savory sweet potato waffles! (more…)

Toffee Apple Cookies

Chewy toffee apple cookies baked with fresh apples! Perfect for fall baking

My baby sister lives about 3 hours away, which seems like practically next door after eight years of living no less than 9 hours away from family.

Fall Harvest Salad

 

This salad is perfect for fall! Blue cheese crumbles, quick candied pecans, fresh apples, dark leafy greens, and an easy red wine vinaigrette. It's healthy fall comfort food!

Either way, my salad cravings are strong in Fall. (more…)

I did not, but I do now… I hope you like it {S}! (more…)

Caramel Apple Bars

 

Caramel Apple Bar Recipe - A decadent shortbread crust, fresh apples and caramel, a crunchy strudel topping, and an extra drizzle of caramel... these were gone in no time!

If the number of requests for this recipe I’ve received from those who have tried them is any indication of how popular they are, please pause and pin, print, or bookmark this now then come back and read the post. I had to get these out of the house quickly or I would have probably eaten half the pan by myself because this is like a better version of one of my fall weaknesses, cold apple pie. (more…)
