Welcome to the weekend, my friends! It’s FALL and I’m still so very happy about it!!! (Just wait until the first snowfall, I may shout about it so loudly that you hear it in your own homes.) Today is the Granville Barn Hop - remember when I did that this past spring? It happens twice a year and I love it.


You can follow along in my stories on Insta today - the odds are good that I’ll be finding fun things to share! My Phoenix friends Christi and Lynne are here for the weekend and it’s going to be a great one.


ON THE BLOG this week: Filled with all sorts of fruits, assorted crunchy cereals, and granola, the Yogurt Parfait Bar is a super fun way to surprise your family for breakfast or host friends for brunch.


This Layered Pumpkin Coffee Cake starts with a sour cream coffee cake that is layered with a creamy pumpkin filling and then topped with a crunchy cinnamon sugar and pecan topping. This is a unique pumpkin dessert that’s perfect for any fall or winter event.


This Sticky Asian Chicken is an EASY 4 ingredient recipe that is going to rock your weeknight dinners. When you add this simple marinade to chicken and bake, broil, grill or pan-fry, you get an Asian chicken recipe that’s better than anything you can find at a restaurant.


What I’m CRAVING: Some of my friends have been making desserts from my new cookbook and sharing the recipes and now I’m craving them all. Three-ingredient Lemon Pudding is over at Rachel Cooks, Buttery Almond Pound Cake is at Miss In The Kitchen, and this Cherries and Chocolate Almond Crisp is waiting for you at The Reluctant Entertainer.


My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these Bamboo and Charcoal Odor Eliminator Bags (link HERE) if you have children - or teenagers, yikes - in your life, these odor eliminators are basically God’s gift. And this is the best price I’ve found for them.


What I’m READING: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel (links HERE) This one came with crazy high reviews. This is a post-apocalyptic dystopian novel - if you like this kind of read, it’s a good one so far.

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
