Happy Fall

blueberries

This weekend was a lovely muddle of happiness. It was a weekend of brisk, crisp Fall air that sent us searching for our scarves. It was a weekend of thousands of crunchy, headdress-wearing, pie-cone eating, very happy Mainers. It was a weekend of wonderful, wonderful friends.  These friends actually visited us in Fairfield, (read: middle of nowhere) Maine and talked with us late into the night (read: past 9 pm) about our collective dreams.

Piping hot and sour-sweet apple cider. The perfect way to sweep us into Fall.

Bite-size Pepperminty Patties

What if I told you I had the recipe to your new favorite dessert- would you promise me you’d go make it? Organic, only six ingredients, bite-sized, salty AND sweet, and -if you’re feeling super guilty- you could totally pretend it’s a breath mint. You can make a ton of these in under an hour, store them in your freezer, and they pass as a crowd-pleaser at a dinner party if you need a last-minute dessert (oh, and they’re toddler approved too!)
