While I enjoy the long, lazy summer days, it’s the cool, crisp days of fall that I really crave! I wait all year long to enjoy the few short weeks, where the mountains are covered in orange, yellow and red patches and the days are cool and sunny. You know…when you need to wear a sweatshirt but you can still get a sun burn!
This was the perfect autumn weekend! Bright sun, colorful leaves, two whole days with nothing to do but visit the pumpkin patch and the apple orchard! Bliss!
This weather always inspires me to cook and bake! And, since we had just left the Ritter’s Cider Mill with all of our favorite finds (buckets of Jona Gold, Macoun and Gala apples, apple cider donuts and, of course, apple cider), I wanted to find some new apple recipes.
