It’s coming. I can feel it (and even if I can’t, I’m going to pretend that I can).
Fall. That’s what I’m talking about.
As most of you know, our little urban homestead is placed in the middle of the Arizona desert. This means that our seasons are a little….well…. they’re a little “off.” Summer is more “summery” and winter is less “wintery” and those other two seasons? Well, sometimes they get a little lost in the shuffle. But just like it is in other parts of the country, fall is a magical time, even in the desert.
And with the change of weather (even subtle changes) comes a change in recipe rotation. Chili and cornbread make an appearance on the menu. Soups are simmering on the stove and then there’s the baking….. oh the baking! Baking in the fall is wonderful. Everything is spicy and pumpkin-y and my kitchen is just starting to feel cool enough for the oven to be turned on regularly. (I live in the desert, remember? 400 degree ovens and 110 degree days just DON’T mix. Trust me.)
The kids love to get involved and *ahem*… “taste test” the creations that come out of the oven. It’s a really fun time of year.
So, when I was given the opportunity to team up with several other of my favorite bloggers and work with Mighty Nest – http://mightynest.com/ to bring you a fall baking giveaway extravaganza…. well, let’s just say I was pretty excited! I know we’re all missing a few things in our baking “arsenal” and there are probably several other items that you’d love to have duplicates of. With that in mind, head on down to the bottom of this post and enter to win $250 worth of gear! (But first you need to drool over these sticky buns that the girls and I made because come on! They look delicious, right?)
