The pumpkins are carved, so all we need now is the pumpkin pie! (and some candy of course.) We went with a bat theme this year: bat trio and a cat bat.

My soul is soothed by most molasses/ginger based cookies. The smell of baking cookies reminds me to feel very grateful for being warm and cozy, and to pray for those that are not so much. (recipe here)
For those of you who don’t know, I have a 6-year old Labrador mix named Marley (who I named before the movie “Marley & Me” came out). She is a pretty funny dog who really just wants to love people all the time and is one of the best companions you could have. She also thinks that every dog is her friend so when I found this picture of a Saint Bernard puppy it made me want to get it. Unfortunately, until we move somewhere that is big enough for two full-grown dogs, Marley will just have to wait for her new best friend.

I have already made pumpkin donuts this season. I wanted to make something else that was still fall themed, and I found these apple doughnuts with caramel drizzle. But then, I took out all the things in the recipe name, and made pear donuts instead. I love a good pear, and it was torture for me to wait for the pear to be ripe, and then save it for the recipe. I tried to make them for breakfast, but I had bad timing, so I had to make them for dessert. They were so good fresh from the oven. I think they would make really good muffins too, since they weren’t too sweet.
