Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower. -Albert Camus

My favorite season is upon us. Many people that I come across that know I live in Alaska think I am somewhat crazy for loving fall. Because isn't autumn just the predecessor to eight cold, icy months? My heart can't help it.  There is something about this season that I am in love with.  Here is a collection of recipes, ideas, and products that I love during this season...

Pumpkin Recipes- some of my favorites

Fall Snack Mix - So quick and easy! Here is what I put in it... pretzels, peanuts, 
M&M's Fall Colors Milk Chocolate CandyCaramel Bugles, and Caramel Apple Candy Corn. No measuring...just dump and mix!

Apple Chip Cake

1 1/4 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
3 cups peeled and chopped apples (hence the name, "apple chip")

Preheat the oven to 350. In a bowl mix oil, sugar and eggs. Beat until smooth. Sift flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon and beat into wet ingredients to form a still batter. Add vanilla, nuts and apples. Stir to blend. Spoon batter into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake 1 hour.  (I tend to use a bundt pan instead.)

You don't really need to frost this cake. However, if you just can't resist this is the frosting that is the best!

Caramel Frosting

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Bring the butter, brown sugar, and milk to a boil. Boil three minutes and then stir in the powdered sugar. Pour over cake.
