Every Halloween we bake spider cookies as a family. A tradition that started when the boys were preschoolers. It’s fun that we are still carrying out the tradition years later. I found this recipe on Epicurious. On the website it is listed as tarantula cookies. Since then I have changed it up a bit.
Cucumber season is from May through August. Just in time for the fall, I made a cucumber pumpkin spice bread. If you garden you may have an abundance of cucumbers. I have relatives who grow cucumbers and I have not been letting them go to waste. In the summer they taste amazing with a pinch of salt. A cucumber is made up of 96% water, which makes it super hydrating on those summer hot days. Now that fall is upon us and colder mornings you make be getting sick of cucumbers or just have no idea what to do what all those cucumbers! I have a couple of ideas to help you use them up!
Besides dessert what can I make to incorporate fall spices into my dish? I had apples leftover from apple picking and wanted to use them since I plan on apple picking again LOL . Why not make an apple cinnamon sauce to serve over grilled chicken and use the leftovers for dessert?! Perfect! It was a nice sweet dish that had FALL written all over it. This was definitely a hit in my home and this apple cinnamon sauce will be a go to this fall season.
