Apples showing up in Fall means we’ll start the long transition to cooler weather. Apple and pumpkin recipes are popping up everywhere. I even asked all of you what you’d like to see next, either pumpkin streusel muffins or this apple pull apart bread. And DANG. Apple kicked some serious butt leave the poor pumpkin muffins in the dust. But I can’t blame you. I’ve seen so many version of apple pull apart breads lately on Pinterest. This is one of those ‘must try’ recipes. After all, it must be good if everyone else trying it. <—– peer pressure. gotta love it, right? 😉

I love fall but always find myself struggling a bit to make that transition. I feel like I just got the hang of having 2 energetic boys home all Summer. It’s like we just figured out what to expect, and then things change with school starting. School is not going to be a picnic in the park, or so I’ve heard. I’ve been told by the parents of older kids, 2nd grade is hard. The homework is different and the curriculum also includes first communion and first reconciliation (our school is Catholic)

So it’s a transition in season and in life.
