Hello October! Fall Recipes and DIY Spices

Happy October Everyone!

I still can't believe it's here. Finally I have an excuse to whip up insane amounts of recipes filled with apples, pumpkins, cider and the like.

And you know what else I learned? You can make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice and Apple Pie Spice.

Take that McCormick. :P

I was perusing my Google Reader and saw Beth at Budget Bytes do a DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice, and it inspired me to share with you all a list of Fabulous Fall links for Awesomely Autumn recipes (I have mentioned I love alliterations, right?)

There's more where that came from, but then what would I share with you on the blog for the rest of the month? A homemade, from scratch, delicious month of October awaits you.

Pull up a chair and stay awhile; things are going to get cozy.

Happy Baking!

      I wish I had seen your Apple Pie Milkshake sooner though I would've added it to the top of the Apple List for sure.
