Get A Sip of Fall…

Another Round of Fall Comforts
I’ve been eyeing all the pumpkin recipes lately. I’ve looked at the apple ones too, but somehow nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice draw my attention more. It’s definitely that season of fall comfort food as you can tell from the recipe below! As I think ahead about seasonal food, Thanksgiving and pies are right around the corner. With that thought in mind, we’re offering another Pie and Pie Crusts class coming up near the end of October so you can make your own homemade pies for Thanksgiving! We had so much fun in our first class and heard so many comments how making pie crust was so easy. The participants proudly left with the pie crusts in hand dreaming of making and eating homemade pie! The class is free, but the space is limited. Sign up quickly if you’d like to come! Details are below! And if you just can’t wait until Thanksgiving for pie, stop by and try some Pumpkin Pie Fudge. From what I’ve heard, it’s delicious!
