Get on it and make those sometime.” Then I get busy, forget and before I […]

When it comes to autumn baking, there are a few star players in my kitchen. Pumpkin is a favorite, closely followed by cranberries but right on their heels are pears.

This month for BakeTogether, Abby gave us all a “no bake” assignment which was a wonderful blessing considering the horrendously hot, humid weather we’ve been having here in New Jersey lately.
