A few weeks ago my sister and I went apple picking at a nearby orchard. The place was absolutely beautiful complete with a little barn and pigs. We picked a few pounds of apples and I took many pictures. My sister was very patient with me and listened obediently as I instructed her on how and where to stand as I snapped photo after photo. Thanks to her cooperation though I ended up with some great ones. I LOVE fall baking and all the flavors involved. There’s always such warmth and spice. The cake above is an apple crumb cake that I often make for breakfast at the B&B I work for. It’s always very popular and one of my personal favorites.
