Yaay! It’s pumpkin time!

Have you ever considered crocheting a pumpkin?

Well, after I’ve made a few myself I can definitely tell you that it is one of the easiest and most rewarding crochet projects I can think of. Those little pumpkins, they are just pure happiness.

And, of course, I made a pattern for you too. As usual, it is fully packed with colorful step-by-step pictures.

Apple And Mixed Berry Crumble

I love apple recipes.

The recipe section of this little blog of mine holds quite a few of them, as I’ve noticed.

For some reason, a nice apple dessert baking in the oven is the epitome of home to me. It probably is so because my Mom used to make a lot of apple treats for me and my sister when we were kids, and she still does. Because she’s the best!

Anyhow, here’s another lovely, refreshing, house-warming apple recipe that I am sure you will enjoy as much as I did…

Divine Apple Tart With Caramel Sauce

I have just decided that this dessert goes straight to the top of my ‘if-I-ever-have-a-restaurant-I’ll-be-serving-this’ list.

Because I am sure that if people had a piece of this apple tart, they would definitely come back for more.

And if they didn’t, for some unimaginable reason, I would be easily able to eat all the tarts I’d have prepared… since this treat is purely delicious!

Just imagine – a flavorful crust that melts in your mouth accompanied by sweet and tender cinnamony apples and that all topped with the most gorgeous caramel sauce ever.

Have a already said that this is delicious?

Because it is!

One of the best desserts I have ever eaten. Hands down.

Free Fall Desktop Backgrounds

Taking pictures is one of my most favorite hobbies.

I am so grateful that this wonderful activity came into my life.

It is so relaxing, it is so enriching, it is just MAGICAL.

 

I take pictures almost every day, whether they are pictures of food that I take in my kitchen to illustrate the recipes I write about, or they are various pictures I take outside while traveling or just walking in nature.

And then, when I arrive back home, I make myself a nice cup of coffee, put on some nice music (or a fun movie even), and enjoy editing the pictures while adding a bit of my own fantasy to them.

Oh, how I love it!

 

Needless to say, with a lifestyle like this, I have already hoarded loads and loads of pictures.

And have I said I have like LOADS of them?

So I thought that – from time to time – I will pick a few of my most favorite images and present them here as downloadable desktop backgrounds for you to enjoy.

Of course, they will all be free.

I was even thinking I could open a new section of this site called FREE DESKTOP BACKGROUNDS one day. I can already see those themes – food, desserts, macro, nature, animals, flowers, winter. Oh, so EXCITING!

But for now, here are a few colorful desktop backgrounds of fall…
