Flavors of Fall

Earlier this year we had an abundance of apricots. (remember this?)

We jammed and jammed and jammed some more.
And in some of the batches of jam, I mixed in cinnamon, ginger, and ground cloves.
Oh.My.Goodness. It is so delicious!

Spiced Apricot jam on whole wheat toast has been my breakfast and snack of choice the past few days.


Every morning with my coffee I'm having this.
I also have Apricot Amaretto that's begging to be opened.
Let's just ignore those jeans that are tightening up each day.

What's your favorite snack?

Pumpkin Spice lattes and candy corn! Much worse than homemade jam and toast! :)

Pumpkin anything, but right now what's available are chocolate cheerios; I pour my one-year-old's whole milk over them. Mmmm. Yeah, I sneak the baby's whole milk a lot. Like daily.
Whew, I'm glad I got that off my chest. Visiting your blog is always such a cleansing experience :)

I just discovered a very retro recipe for peanut butter and jam bars. How is that only 5 ingredients and no fancy prep can taste so darn good? And, yes, even better with coffee. :)
