I finally joined the Pinterest bandwagon!

And I love it! I held off as long as possible but I couldn't stand it anymore! This time of year I find myself drawn to baking all sorts of yummy stuff, so naturally, most of my pins have been food related! But that's okay too because I love to try new husband is happy!
One of the first recipes I tried was Cake Batter Blondies. Unfortunately, they didn't quite turn out. Not sure if I used too much milk, didn't bake long enough or used too small of a pan. I haven't given up on them completely and will try it again. These Rolo cookies turned out perfect! Caramel and chocolate-one of my favorite combination's!

Super easy to make too! 1 box of devil's food cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of oil. Mix together and form a ball of dough over a Rolo. Bake for 8 minutes at 350 and dust with powered sugar. Yummy!
I did make those Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars and they were amazing! So good in fact that I was only able to snap a picture of them fresh out of the oven and none of the individual bars themselves. These are absolutely the perfect September dessert. It is like an apple pie, apple crumble, cheesecake and caramel apples all in one delicious bite. You won't be disappointed if you make it. For the recipe, visit The Girl Who Ate Everything.

The weather is cool with scattered rain showers and thunder. And I love it! Fall is definitely in the air! I am looking forward to the weekend-I am going to see Def Leppard and dressing up 80's style. And my birthday is on Tuesday and birthday's are always fun! Wishing everyone happy weekend!

Those all look wonderful Trisha. Seems the older I get the less I do things like this. Maybe a couple projects for this winter.

It looks like you and I are on the same page sweet Trisha. I've been in such a mood to bake too, that it seems the kitchen is always a mess. I love it! I have been itching to bake a peach pie today so we'll see.
sending big hugs your way...
