Is it me or are you starting to see leaves loose their emerald hue? Do the pastures seem aged and no longer a vibrant green? My mother has already got the leaf blower out. Hunters spent the weekend in tree stands with bows. Nights are getting cooler and squirrels are scavaging the spoils of a late summer/early fall. Mother Nature seems ready for the change and so am I.
I get excited this time of year because of so many fun things to do! Corn mazes, pumpkin patches, apple picking, bonfires, and just going for a drive down the backroads with the windows down. Just simple things that make living in a small-town good.
If you are looking for something that is sweet, moist, and full of fall flavor-you gotta’ try this cake. If you have a Fall favorite you would like to share, email
