Boy have I been busy the past month (and out of town!) Well, the holidays are a time for family- and that is what I have been up to! Today I am going to feature some of my sweet treats that I have been sharing with my family and friends from Halloween, Thanksgiving, a trip home to TX, and more!
Here is a picture of Robbie, 10, one of the kids I babysit for enjoying a pumpkin & cream cheese cupcake on Halloween!
Although you can't see the actual treats-- Let me tell ya they were yummy!!! The first was a mini pumpkin pecan loaf with a brown sugar streussel, and the second- pumpkin sour cream bars with chocolate chips, walnuts & a brown butter icing.
Here is a picture of me with my apple raspberry pie before it went in the oven! It was made with a cinnamon crust & a turbinado sugar glaze!
Here is the pie on Thanksgiving- so crispy, flaky & delicious!!This is a (poor) shot of the most delicious pumpkin pie I have ever made/eaten!! It was a cream cheese pumpkin filling with an almond spice whipped cream.. MMMMMM!!Here is a picture of my Dad & I during my trip home to TX. It was his birthday-- he is a chocolaholic can you tell???
It was a chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese fudge filling, ganache & semisweet chocolate chunks on the outside!
Unfortunately my trip home was because my beautiful mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in October & was having her surgery. I made her these cream cheese sugar cookies with Royal Icing!!
Watch out for HOLIDAY TREATS soon to come on the blog!!
