It’s almost harvest time and I am so excited! I have been looking forward to Fall. It’s is one of my favorite seasons. I love the food and fashion fall time brings.
We pull out the crockpot for wonderful soups and chili, enjoy all things pumpkin and sweet potato. I am happy that we have three crops of sweet potatoes in the garden that are almost ready for harvest.
We also have lots of holiday recipe testing in full effect. I have been working diligently on my Holiday Desserts E-book that will be available soon. I love being able to share what we are cooking up with you all. Here is a sneak peek recipe from the cookie section.
