Fall Favorite Recipes

Fall is among us which means all the baking!

I know it's basic, but I LOVE anything pumpkin. My personal favorite? Pumpkin bread! And the best part - it is SO easy to make. Fortunately, Taylor loves it too because it's a fall staple in our house. But his absolute favorite is apple pie. We have a great (and easy) apple pie recipe that truly tastes like fall and Thanksgiving wrapped into one.

Enjoy two of the Fatheree household favorites!
