The brisk winds of fall are fast approaching! Last week in central Oregon was blustery and wet. This week beautiful 70-degree sunny days! Friends, you may have noticed that RE has a new site design! I hope that it’s easier to navigate around to find your favorite recipes!

Don’t forget that I’ve shared quite a bit about our mountain home and DIY projects!

Welcome autumn … or is it fall? I often wonder how autumn became the only season with two names?

I did a little research. Before autumn and fall it was “harvest.”

As late as the 18th century, English speakers couldn’t agree when, exactly, fall would take place. Some thought fall began in August and ended in November, while others contested that it began in September (at the equinox) and ended in December (with the solstice).

I see a glimpse of the leaves beginning to change, and so are my tastebuds!

Pumpkin, apples, winter (late fall) squash, so many delicous soups, stews, one-pot meals, and desserts!

My palate right now is screaming APPLES! I miss our dear friends back home (Medford, Oregon) and their delicious apples they would bring us every year.

Serve them warm with ice cream (vanilla, of course).

Friends, I hope you are enjoying fall (or autumn?) and the delicious apple season!

ENJOY!

  4. There is an inconsistency between your ingredients list and your directions. Could you please clarify for me. In the ingredients you list 1/2 cup sugar. In the directions you say to mix flour, oats and *brown* sugar. Which one do we use? Granulated sugar or brown sugar?
