Falling for Fall

Cupcakes for Breakfast: falling for fall

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Happy Friday, friends! Hope you had a great week. I’m so looking forward to this weekend…celebrating all things fall with a visit to a corn maze, sleeping in with the windows open, plaid and boots. I’m soaking up as much of it as I can before winter rolls in.

Oh, did you catch me over on the Washingtonian this week? I shared a few of my favorite work outfits including the cutest under $30 Target dress. I hope to have more photos to share with you next week!

Ok, so what are you doing this weekend? Pumpkin picking? Brunching? Baking this easy apple galette? Whatever you do, have a great one!

The Fall Desserts I’d Like to Make…

…but won’t because I have nightmares about finding dead mice all over my kitchen. Gah. I need to just grow up and stop being a frustrated wuss about this, right? I’m working on fixing the problem, but in the meantime I need to just get over it and let the pumpkin and apple smells take me over. I’m trying. Really. So, if I wasn’t totally turned off by baking at home, here are a few things that I’d particularly like to make for you.

An Apple A Day

i had one apple…it was just sitting there…all alone…and then, look what it made!

A beautiful (and perfectly delicious) spiced apple galette.

You really only need about 5 things to make this dessert. And about 30 minutes. And poof, you’re a domestic goddess. With some of the best fall flavors all warm and sweet on a plate right in front of you.

Spiced Apple Galette

  • 1 large apple (I think this one is a honey crisp), sliced
  • 1 frozen pie crust
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice mix (cinnamon, ginger, cloves, lemon peel, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix apple slices with sugar, flour and spices.
  3. Arrange apples on pie crust.
  4. Fold the edge of crust in, around the fruit creating folds.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

And you know you want to… make it à la mode.
