Weekly Recap

En route to a wine stomp with my family on Sunday, we stopped at a plentiful roadside farmer's market with pumpkins, gourds, and squash galore!

My little sister Leanne got into the spirit of the fall season!

I got a huge haul of sweet potatoes so we've been eating them non-stop this week. My favorite method is sliced, sauteed, and enjoyed atop a salad of mixed greens and dried cranberries.

On a trip into Baltimore to see my friend Bilqis this weekend, we stopped at Patterson Park's observation tower which offers stunning views of the city. Apparently the tower is only open Sunday mornings during the spring, summer, and fall, so we were especially lucky to make it in without any prior planning!

Dangerously Delicious Pies offers a delightful pie known as the Mobtown. Pecan pie buried beneath a thick and decadent layer of chocolate ganache, it's pretty much my favorite sweet treat. Since they failed to deliver when we ordered pies for my birthday a few weekends ago (how a pie shop runs out of crucial ingredients for orders placed days in advance without letting the customers know is still beyond me), Mike and I decided to make our own modified Mobtown. A store-bought pecan pie worked as the base and Nutella made a most delicious ganache-esque topping. Mike was out of town and challenged me to save the pie until he made it home... the Nutella swirls on top are really putting my willpower to the test!
