seasonal sweets

November 11, 2011

The time is near, friends. Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away! Can you believe it? I had to wear my “proper winter coat” for the first time yesterday and there were snow flakes fluttering their suggestive, sneaky selves at me. I sulked about it all morning.

I’m missing out on holiday parties and potlucks this year since Dan and I will be in the U.K. visiting family and friends (insert obnoxious excitement levels here). Don’t worry, this only means I’ll go completely overboard when I’m home for the December holidays (for the first time in three years!).

In case YOU happen to have some need for a sweet recipe to bring along to a potluck or party to share, here are some of my favourites for this time of year.

White Chocolate Spiced Cupcakes

Lemon Buttermilk Cookies

Pumpkin Bread

Spiced Mexican Wedding Cookies

Butternut Squash Bread

Pumpkin-Ginger Molasses Cookies

Aw those white chocolate cupcakes were the first thing I remember seeing on your blog! They look as delicious now as they did then.

my dear friend,

some really really lovely posts i missed while i was gone! i do have to say the welsh cakes post was my favorite – that old recipe card from your grandma made my heart melt. so sweet.

and i just read a food/farming memoir book (which i will send you if you send me your address – you will love it! and i have a rule about books: always pass the good ones on), where they regularly cook with lard, and it was just so fascinating because i feel like people don’t do that anymore!

eep for europe! uploading my pics to snapfish now, and i will send you the link. they are all unedited, for the record.

love you!
