Over the weekend I finally got around to making homemade hamburger buns thanks to an excellent recipe from Celia. What better way to enjoy delicious homemade buns than to take the burgers up a notch.

It is October, time for all the pumpkin goodies. As I mentioned in the last post I recently bought two baking pumpkins and couldn’t wait to get started. My first pumpkin item of the fall was this maple pumpkin butter.
Autumn is in the air and I absolutely love it! Our youngest, Sean, just celebrated his fourth birthday on the first day of autumn and we enjoyed a wonderful weekend in the mountains. It was his turn to be king and pick everything we did and ate. Needless to say he loved every minute of it all!
Among all the wonderful things we did was a trip to the orchard to go apple picking. For the second year in a row we went to Sky Top Orchard and had so much fun. In addition to all the apple trees we went through the bamboo forest, saw all the animals, played on the playground and had apple cider donuts. What glorious fall fun!
I was a little surprised to go through the blog stats recently and discover that the white chocolate raspberry jam is the most viewed post. Don’t get me wrong, it is so incredibly delicious and easy, I just didn’t realize that many people would be interested in a homemade jam. In honor of Valentine’s Day coming up I have another jam for you, chocolate strawberry. After all, chocolate covered strawberries are heavenly!
