Pumpkin Nutella Chess Pie

Apparently we now only eat things with pumpkin in them here.  Has pumpkin fatigue set in yet?  Is that a thing?

Oatmeal Raisin Blondies with Apple Butter Swirl

Pumpkin S’mores Blondies

Hannah here, writing to you from a deep deep hole of sports depression.

As you know from CNN “breaking news” updates, Kate’s last post, and the Dick’s Sporting Goods commercial that aired in error yesterday encouraging me to go buy Rangers World Series Champions t-shirts…this has not been the easiest weekend for Texas Rangers fans. (more…)
