Falling into Fall

My oh my… fall already.  It’s cool all day and the seasons transitioned so quickly.  I didn’t really have a chance to think about it. …not that they wait for my approval or anything.

I’m super excited about all the pumpkin and squash recipes.  I tried butternut squash last night.  I wasn’t too impressed.  I’m convinced that something went wrong.  Probably the part when I got lazy and put them in the microwave – yeah I’m pretty sure.

I can’t wait to make this recipe that I saw at Smitten Kitchen via Nicole at Baking Bites (she’s my hero).  Check the picture below.  You can check out the recipe by clicking on the photo.

I mean really… how can I not make this? Absolutely have to.

Then I stumbled across another interesting recipe… Wacky Cake. What the crap? Wacky cake!  It sounds like something that should be at the State Fair (which I haven’t had the chance to attend and is causing my soul to weep on the inside). I found the Wacky Cake recipe over at Homesick Texan.  Dear HT, I don’t know who you are but I officially swear by your recipe for authentic queso.  Thank you and goodnight.
