I Heart Fall

So, fall and winter are my favorite times of year. I love all the cold weather, the beautiful scenery, and yes even the snow. I love to spend these few months buried away in my kitchen cooking and baking yummy creations! In my quest to impress boyfriend with my extreme culinary skills I was googling recipes with pumpkin and came across my new obsession Our Best Bites. I poured over their site for awhile and decided on two of their recipes for the weekend.

First up, the Hot Corn Dip. I have NEVER cooked with an actual onion, much less the peppers they want you to use in this recipe. I am a fraidy cat. But I sucked it up thanks to encouragement from boyfriend and I did!! I cut up my first onion and peppers and followed the recipe exactly.
It came out absolutely fabulous!!! We both loved it! I could not believe I actually ate something and enjoyed it knowing there was peppers and onions in it. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe and will definitely be using it more often.

After munching on that for the afternoon and some yummy potato soup for dinner I tried out another recipe from my new obsession, the Easy Apple Dumplings. My house smelled AMAZING when this was baking!

And even better!
I was so impressed by how easy both recipes were but they came out looking and tasting like they took a ton of time! Boyfriend and I pigged out all weekend on all the yummy goodness and I can't wait to try more recipes out!

If you love to cook and bake like I do, then I definitely recommend popping on over to Our Best Bites to check out what they have to offer. They are always introducing new recipes as well. I already have my eye out for my next adventure in the kitchen with them!

Other than my kitchen experiments, our weekend was relatively boring. I agreed to a Halloween movie marathon and have now seen almost all of the lovely Michael Meyers movies. Go figure that we watch 4 of them only to find out there are 3 more we missed. Yay. Hopefully, he won't make me watch anymore of them after I scared him with my screaming and freaking out Lol.

Just to end, here is my awesome helper in the kitchen who not only enjoyed the yumminess with me, but also did the dishes!
Hope everyone has a great week!!!
