Apple Chips Fresh off the Tree

To celebrate this most glorious season, two girlfriends and I went to a farm to pick apples, eat donuts and ice cream, and act like we were kids again.

My friend put together this awesome photo collage that I couldn't resist sharing. That's me in the middle!

GO BLUEberry Pie Cookies

Once again, it's my favorite time of the year. The air is getting cooler, apples and pumpkin are in season, my sweaters and boots can escape the depths of my closet and return to prime locations within easy reach, and football season is well underway!

Last year, I made a point to celebrate my alma mater every Saturday they played. I'm sure it hasn't gone unnoticed, but I've been blogging far less frequently as of late. This is not to say I have forgotten my Wolverines or have not been following the games. On the contrary — this year, I've discovered a pair of Michigan bars in the Boston area, both heavy with fans on game day. I watched my boys lose to Alabama and regain confidence and merit in their games against the Army and U Mass. Tonight, we play Notre Dame — remember how incredible that game was last year (when I made Maize and Blue swirled cupcakes to celebrate)? I'm looking forward to a similar battle!

As we move into full blown Fall, I will be baking up plenty of apple and pumpkin treats —two of my favorite flavors. To give Summer its proper send off and celebrate the Michigan Wolverines, I made a treat with fresh berries — Blueberry Pie Cookies!
