Hello friend!

I hope your week has been full of joy, gratitude and thanksgiving! We need to be reminded to do this on occasion — at least I do!

My girls weekend was fantastic! We had so much fun together, chatting, laughing and crying, eating great food together, hiking and being reminded of the refreshment that comes when we make room for others; coupled with downtime it’s win-win!

**Don’t forget this is weekend we “Fall Back” and say goodbye to daylight savings time!**

This week I am bringing two new fall inspired recipes, three if you missed last week! PLUS, I am excited to offer a GIVEAWAY from my brand partner, Rodelle.

  • A superior line of baking ingredients, pure vanilla products and gourmet spice blends.
  • Rodelle products are available nationwide via Amazon and Walmart as well as in many grocery chains.

Our kitchen has been a mess lately and that is because I have been cranking out some delicious recipes for YOU! Sometimes, making a recipe two and three times, to make sure I have it just right!

Pear Bundt Cake

This gorgeous bundt cake is made with sweet, soft, seasonal pears — they are underutilized in baking in my opinion!

This bundt cake is so simple to make and topped with this Basic Vanilla Glaze, Browned Butter Glaze or drizzled with this lick-your-plate clean Vanilla Butter Sauce — elevating this cake to a Thanksgiving worthy dessert!

Fall Harvest Chicken Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Whether you are inviting some friends over for a fall luncheon, looking for a healthy, but filling salad or planning your Thanksgiving menu — this Fall Salad will please everyone!

Featuring roasted butternut squash, Honeycrisp apples, feta cheese, pumpkin seeds, pecans, pomegranate and chicken if you choose — tossed in light, 5 minute Apple Cider Vinaigrette dressing.

Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies

Not sure if you saw these Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies last week, I used Rodelle Reserve Vanilla elevating these simple cookies. Chewy, pumpkin-y, filled with Pumpkin Pie Spices and studded with butterscotch chips. Chewy, soft, and the perfect afternoon treat!

  1. Dear Kathleen,
    Thanks so much for the “Common Ingredient Substitutions” List. You don’t know how much “surfing” the internet I have done to find subs for this and that! This will save me so much time by having everything in one sheet. This is great!

    Thanks again,
    From Chester County, Pennsylvania

  2. The pear bundt cake looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it! My dilemma?? Which sauce or glaze to make…they all look so good…guess I will have to make ALL of them and have a family vote!

  3. Kathleen, I have the Breville countertop convection oven w/air fryer. I have had it for years & absolutely love it. I have used my big oven less than half a dozen times since purchasing my Breville. I use big oven for storage mostly. I have to drop baking temperature by 25 degrees in Breville to keep from burning the tops of long cooking, tall bundt cakes. My Breville oven ties 1st place with stand mixer for “most used” kitchen appliance. I think you will be extremely happy with a Breville countertop oven w/air fryer.

  4. I have been searching for a pumpkin cookie recipe. This one seems perfect. I think I will add some toffee bits per your suggestion. Will let you know how mine turn out. Like another commenter, I have never seen the Rodelle brand in our locals supermarkets. Will have to look more closely to see if I have been overlooking them. Perfect giveaway for this baking season. Thank you.

  5. Hi Kathleen,
    I look forward to your blog every Friday…it is so inspiring!
    What a fun giveaway. I have used some of the Rodelle products before, and they’re lovely. I also want to add that if you have never tried the key lime pie recipe, you should! It is the BEST! 🙂 Derri

  6. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity. Rodelle makes my favorite vanilla extract, and I also using their baker’s extract – love the hint of chocolate in the scent. Both very delicious!

  7. Hey Girlfriend, I completely agree with you that pears are due to have ‘their day’. Can’t wait to bake that bundt cake.

    Also, we have the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer and it is the Bomb-diggity. I’ve never had a ‘toaster oven’ before and never wanted one. But my parents bought us one for Christmas several years back and it is a game changer. We rarely turn on our regular oven. The Breville has so many great settings; the pizza one is a game changer, of course the Air Fryer and Dehydrator is great. I’ve even roasted a delicious Christmas Roast Beef in our Breville. You need to put that on your Christmas list!

  8. The key Lime Pie and the Pear Bundt cake look so refreshing and delicious that I would like to eat some now. Yes, it is morning. But there is nothing wrong with dessert for Breakfast or mid-morning snack.

  9. I look forward to your weekly emails and the great recipes and ideas!
    I would love to be entered in and win the Rodelle Giveaway. Sure could use a happy boost!
