a bit of fall in the kitchen
It's that time of year! We warm our homes with cozy throws, candles are lit at twilight to cast a warm glow, and we buy pumpkins and gourds to fill our homes will fall's natural beauty. I've been dreaming of baking pies and having hearty, warm stews cooking in the oven. This year instead of my usual halloween decor I've opted for a Thanksgiving approach. I have so much to be thankful for this year so I'm choosing the warmth and beauty of God's creation over my usual skeletons and spiders.
I'm sure by looking at these photos you can figure out what I'll be doing tomorrow. :) I hoping to bake an apple pie for my family. I will be leaving on a small getaway and I have a cozy night planned with a warm meal dined by candlelight and ending with apple pie. I thought it would be a nice way to spend the evening with my family before I go! It's been a crazy week but I've worked really hard to stay on schedule so that I can make this evening happen!
Here's a sampling of a few of my favorite items for fall baking:
1. In the previous post on pantry items I recommended the kitchenaid mixer as it is an invaluable tool in a gluten free kitchen.
2. This straight rolling pin is my favorite for evenly rolling out dough.
3. Emile Henry makes the greatest pie dish.
4. These adorable dishcloth napkins are currently available at Pottery Barn
