I know it's been quiet around here lately. It's gotten colder again (and snowed - bah!) so I've basically gone back into hibernation. I've also been sewing a lot and trying out some new things which has been really fun. I have a few fun things I've been working on for the blog though this week so it's time to break the silence:) Hope everyone else is braving this winter that's holding on well! 

Pumpkin Recipes I Just Love

I know som people are all ready to jump right into Christmas, but it's still fall, and I plan on taking full advantage of that fact as long as I can! I'm a total pumpkin addict, so I thuoght I'd share a few of my favorite recipes...

If you haven't made your own Pumpkin Puree from scratch, you should give it a try! It's actually really simple and you can freeze it to keep for a few months too! Here's my recipe.

Fine and Feathered Pumpkin Bagels

A week or two ago I really wanted to try my hand at making bagels and decided I had to start with Seasons and Suppers Pumpkin Pie Bagels - they are a bit of work, but boy are they worth it! I froze most of them so I can just pull them right out whenever I need one!

Fine and Feathered

My Pumpkin Spice Scone and Pumpkin Cake Pop recipes I shared last year - still some of my favorites!

Fine and Feathered Pumpkin Roll

I've already made this one at least five times this year. This Pumpkin Roll Recipe from My Baking Addiction is incredible, and leaves me scraping my plate every time!

Pumpkin Pie Granola - I really need to make some soon!

Fine and Feathered Pumpkin Cup Pies

I really would love to try making these again, this time maybe a little cuter and more dressed up! Either way, Pumpkin Cup Pies are delicious (and just another way to celebrate my never-ending love for Pushing Daisies).

I've also made these Pumpkin Cinnamon rolls twice this year, and thanks to my family they haven't even lasted long enough to snap a picture. Do you guys have any good fall recipes? Please share! I'm always looking for new ones to try out:)

I'm usually not a huge pattern mixer. I'd say I'm a pretty simple dresser usually. Not that I'm against it, because I think if it's done right then mixing patterns and colors can be really fun, but it also can be easy to drift into the "I threw everything in my closet on my body" look too, which is not so good, so I usually stay away. Stripes and gingham though? I'm pretty sure they were made for each other. A good black and white stripe sweater is officially on my "never be without" list. It's a great pattern to have on hand that can go with fun colors without overpowering everything. Especially when fall is calling for lots of layers!
