Apple and Pumpkin Picking

Part of the reason I love living on Long Island is all the wonderful  local farms. This time of year is all about apples and pumpkins. So on my day off I went to a local farm, picked some apples and got some small pumpkins to use for decorations in my house. Wanted to share some pictures from my trip.

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup

Desserts like this are perfect when you want something sweet, but don't want to spend a ton of time baking or don't want a ton of leftovers in the house from baking a full recipe. Takes about 2 minutes and tastes just like a chocolate chip cookie. Here's the link to the recipe

Dirty Smores Cookies

Since this recipe makes so many cookies, I froze half before baking so I have them in the freezer when I want a cookie. I love smores and love that this recipe rolls them in graham crackers before baking. Such a fun snack and perfect for anytime of year. Here's the link to the recipe

Mini Apple Pies

It's apple season so of course I have to mix in some apple recipes along with all the pumpkin ones. These were delicious and so quick and easy to put together. I used a mini flower cookie cutter since it still is technically summer. Here's the link to the recipe

Chocolate Beer Cupcakes

I had this rainbow chip frosting left over from the vanilla cupcakes I made for a Friend's birthday so I used that for these cupcakes instead of the frosting recipe with these cupcakes. I love beer, so of course I love cooking and baking with it. Here's the link to the recipe
