Hello Fall, and Hello Fall Flavors

I don't know about you, but I am ready for Fall. There are so many things to look forward to. The weather starts to get cooler, the holidays will be fast aproaching, and the flavors of fall are mouth watering.

Fall flavors are deffinatly one of the things that I look forward to when it starts to cool off. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and oranges. Those are the three ingrediants that make me think of this wonderful season. I love to smell those aromas in my home as well as in my baking. So, when I am not baking I love to use candles and scented oils to keep the scents in my home.

Okay, back to talking about food. I am very excited about the recipes that I have planned for this season and the up coming holidays. I hope you are all excited too. I have cakes, candy bark, and truffles. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Anyway, I can't wait to get baking and share these ideas with you.

The above picture is a picture of some snickerdoodles I made today. I got the recipe from a cookbook that I have had for a long time. It has so many yummy desserts in it. I hope I can share some of them with you. Hopefully, I can get started next week and share some yummy treats.

An Idea for a Homemade Fancy Coffee

I just wanted to write a quick post for a coffee idea. It's super easy and it can open up so many possibilities.

One day, a couple of weeks ago I was tired of just coffee so I added a few things. This is just a simple idea if you want to change up your regular coffee.

No picture today, but I don't think you will need one.

What you will need:

Vanilla flavored instant coffee
 1 tsp. sugar (or less)
 whipped cream

 What to do:

1. Make the instant coffee as directed.

2. Add milk and sugar to your liking. (can alson use a none dairy creamer)

3. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.

That's it. I know it's not much, but it's good. Maybe you will be inspired to try your own coffee combination. You can also use coffee flavoring instead of the vanilla flavored coffee. I hope you like it. You could even add a piece of chocolate.
