Chillier days

Good Morning everyone! Hope you’re all staying warm in these chillier days! The temps may be dropping, but our little cottage is cozy and warm and yep, I’m one of those people that’s already listening to Christmas music and I’m ok with it. 😀 I have my menu for Thanksgiving ready and I’ve been slowly…

Gluten Free Apple Pie

Welcome November! I’m watching the last of the Autumn leaves falling, a slight drizzle tinkling down, a soft breeze blowing in the open windows and enjoying the last of the mild temperatures. I took a day to rest and enjoy the day after a busy weekend and crazy week last week. Over the weekend, I…
