falling for fall // apples & pumpkins

Friday, September 23, 2011

Happy Fall! I have some VERY exciting news! I won the Randolph Street Market Vintage Vernacular contest!!!!! Thank you to EVERYONE who voted for my photo! I cannot believe I WON!

I have decided to end fall week with something sweet. I love all the delicious treats that come with the change from summer to fall. A few years ago, my sister and I started making our pies from scratch at Thanksgiving. This year, I would love to make individual pies in mason jars. Apple and pumpkin, of course. Although truth be told, I am not really a fan of pumpkin pie. But apple? All over it.

What's a fall treat that you can't wait to bake this year?
And what do you prefer? Pumpkin or apple?

It's the first weekend of Fall! Hope you enjoy it! I want to get to a pumpkin patch ASAP!

Hope you enjoyed fall week! Don't forget to enter my Williams-Sonoma giveaway!

  4. Great inspiration here! I love apples and pumpkin fairly equally. I'm excited to try making pumpkin whoopie pies and some pumpkin granola. Apples and cider are still my day-to-day favorite.

  7. Congrats! I think I lean a little more towards apple, but I'll probably be on a pumpkin kick at some point this fall too. I can't wait to pick some apples and bake Smitten Kitchen's apple cake.

  9. I think I need to make some apple pie this weekend. I was going to wait for my freshly picked apples but I might just have to grab some from the store and make it happen :)

  10. Yum, this makes me hungry ~ can I choose both Apple and Pumpkin! This weekend my goal is to bake something inspired by Fall. We'll see how it turns out, I'm more of a cook than a baker ;)

    Happy Weekend~

  14. Congrats on winning - that's awesome! I really love both apple and pumpkin pie, but if I had to choose, I'd say that pumpkin wins by just a smidgen :-)

  16. I love this post! You are such a talented graphic designer, and then to add delicious food on top of it - yeah well, needless to say, you're getting added to my Reader! :) haha.

    I can't wait to try making my mom's famous cashew stuffing this year. I don't know how successful it will be, but I've got to be able to carry on the legend of its deliciousness someday, so I better start practicing!
