Not just for apples anymore! I love this idea, and thought you might enjoy this simple pear compote (yummy over vanilla ice cream).

And an easy hostess gift…Cranberry Nut Fudge. Super simple, you can let the kids stir in the extras (pumpkin seeds, walnuts, dried berries, etc.)

This looks divine…. I think I want to try making them with my boys. What a fun twist to use pears instead of apples. Genius!

I would be all over making them right this evening if only I knew where to get yoghurt pretzels… are they readily available in Normandy or do you have them shipped over? I can’t recall having seen them in the Amsterdam grocery stores (pity!).

I just got down making pumpkin whoopie pies to bring as a treat for a work pary. The house smells devine. Gotta love fall!

As a New Englander, I’ve definitely missed out on her blog. Vermont Fudge Cake: I’m so there. You’ll find me in the kitchen this weekend.

Super easy – plums + sugar + cognac and then do hot water canning. Unbelievably yummy over vanilla ice cream. Plus … I get to spend time making pretty labels.

One Christmas I tried to make special stout breads in tin cans for gifts. They were disgusting even though they looked great. So that was a fail!

The fudge cake looks like it’s the perfect antidote to pms/still have wacky hormones 8 months after giving birth.

We love to make and giveaway homemade oreos at our house.
