Delicious Delectables- Airy Cinnamon Pumpkin Butter

by Maggie Kelleher

Lately, chocolate has been on my mind. I've been wearing lots of Fall colors and wool layers and thinking about sitting in front of the fireplace back home with a cup of hot cocoa. Now since cocoa tastes nowhere near as good when not paired with a roaring fire, I've been thinking of ways to get my Fall chocolate fix elsewhere. And have I found it!

Look at this cake. Delicious, fudge-y chocolate coffee cake with chocolate morsels and fresh walnuts. YUMMMMMM!!!!!! This is My Grandma's Ted Williams Chocolate Coffee Cake (check out it's name's explanation here).

Autumn Adventures- Halloween Scare Package

by Maggie Kelleher

Today I had a little free time and a small task to do.

The other day I found a product that I knew would be the perfect gift for my little sister. Just another one of my Fall Favorites!

A little about my sister.. my freshman year, I bought her ninja cookie cutters for her birthday, and she sent me a care package of home-made ninja-bread cookies. Well now it's her freshmen year, and I have found the perfect follow up gift... zombie cookie cutters! I just had to send them, and instead of just a box in a box, a full care package was in order!

Back to the point, today I had the task of sending my sister the Halloween fun I bought her, but I had a bit of free time, so I decided to decorate the box and give her a whole Halloween treat!
