Yeah! Fall is just around the corner. It’s my favorite time of the year. I love the cooler weather, the falling leaves, football, school starting and everything pumpkin. I just can’t seem to get enough pumpkin this time of year.
My family loves it when I make apple pies. I, however, don’t like to make apple pies quite as much as they like to eat them. This is mainly because I make mine from scratch. The dough and the filling are all homemade. This is a bit labor intensive and time consuming.
There is a lot of excitement in my house right now. You see, football season is finally here. My oldest son is a football fanatic. He can name players, numerous stats and is a whiz when it comes to football records, too. It’s almost scary how much that kid absorbs when it comes to football.
I’ve been day dreaming about fall thanks to our recent couple days of cooler weather. Fall is my favorite time of the year. Along with fall comes all things pumpkin. Coincidentally, I also love pumpkin.
My family loves Italian food. One of our favorites is lasagna. I love to eat it, but I hate to make it. It can be a huge pain to make. From boiling a pot of water, then boiling the noodles, then layering everything and then finally cooking it for an hour. It can be very time consuming.
The people in my family have a slight obsession with lemon. Pretty much any recipe that has delicious lemony flavor is a hit. I, on the other hand, love blueberries. This recipe beautifully melds these two amazing fruits together.
I’m always looking for healthier alternatives to classic recipes. My boys absolutely love fruit muffins. It doesn’t matter what kind of fruit is in the muffins, they just love the way fruit and cake combine. So, when I ran across these muffins, I just had to give them a try. They were just as good as the original, if not better.

I have a slight addiction to mochas. I can’t go more than one day without one. I don’t care if they are hot or cold. I don’t discriminate. It also doesn’t matter to me whether it’s first thing in the morning or right before bed, I will drink a mocha any time of the day or night
