I love the Fall!

Now that it’s October, there’s a slight chill is in the air here in Austin and “chilly” sixty degree days mean a handful of things:

  • Friday night lights and college football game days
  • Crockpot Chili
  • Northface jackets
  • Better hair days
  • And pumpkin season!


Pumpkin spice, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin chili, pumpkin curry, and pumpkin muffins!

Wooooo hoooo!!!

If you love pumpkin too, you gotta whip up one of these bad boys!
