Dia de los Muertos

We’re all susceptible to impulse buys. Sometimes it’s a pair of shoes we really didn’t need and have nothing in our closets that will match. Other times it’s an expensive bar of gourmet chocolate, guaranteed to boost your chocolate cake to the next level or just taste super delicious as you eat it bite by bite. I recently gave into the urge to buy an overpriced novelty cookie cutter kit with four distinct cookie cutters shaped like skulls with decorate designs to stamp on the dough.

A Sweet as Honey Season of Apples

Without question, fall is my favorite season. I love the crisp feel in the air. Love the fall coats and boots in their earth tone shades or bold solid colors. Love the flavors and smells of apples, pumpkin and tea. Love the holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving, the only holidays I regularly anticipate with excitement and elaborate plans (costumes on Halloween and travels home for Thanksgiving).

Sweet and Spicy Peach Salsa
