Apple Rose Tart

Fall is my absolute favorite, favorite time of year! The smells, the colors, the clothes, the food and oh those leaves! Those gorgeous falling leaves! I get so excited from about October 1st until January each year. The holidays and the weather always get me all cozied up and in a great mood for seemingly no reason everyday!

Apple Rose Tart _11 NPAnd every year in about August I start pinning and mentally planning all the gorgeous recipes and tablescapes that I will try out that season. And each year without fail I get through, um maybe, one or two of those before the season comes and goes! I get so caught up enjoying everything around me that I forget I make my own pumpkin pecan bread or gingerbread house.

Apple Rose Tart _5 NPThis year fret not though! At least I planned ahead enough to take a gander at this gorgeous apple pie! I spied some delectable apple rose tarts peeping into my Pinterest feed and I knew that this is the year that I must try it out myself! After reading and researching lots of blogs and techniques on how to make the perfect apple rose I decided on this simple take. Easy enough to get some little hands to help out this season or if you’re me a nice little task while catching up on the latest Real Housewives. Yes, you heard that right, I am total fan. Guilty pleasure right here. I can’t get enough of those shows!

Easy Homemade Everything Bagels

Everything Bagels Easy Homemade RecipeHmm what to do with rainy weekend? Why make some homemade bagels of course! I truly love bagels, almost as much a breakfast tacos. But somehow they seem a little bit more indulgent and little more special. Is it because I can’t get them on every street corner in Austin at anytime of day? Is it because if I were to make them myself then they take a little more invest of my sweet weekend time? Maybe. Bagels were something I ate a lot more of as kid than I do these days. Maybe simply because growing up breakfast tacos weren’t much of thing were I lived. I still like to grab a bagel and cream cheese anytime I am in an airport. Not really sure why because of most of the time they are a bit of a disappointment. I think it’s just some sorta nostalgia I have for the gluttonous breakfast pastry! When I came across this recipe that says you can make these in less than two hours, well I knew what my weekend plans were!
