Friday Favorites from Waiting on Martha, Two Peas & Their Pod, Carmel Moments and More

Good morning! I love Fridays, the end of a work week and the endless possibilities ahead make me jump out of bed in anticipation of adventures ahead. 

My choices seem endless, walks along the ocean, drives in the country,  a stack of recipes waiting to be baked, an excellent book and of course time spent with my husband and pups. 

This week my favorites are all about Fall, entertaining, cooking, baking and nesting.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I would love to start my day with these Pumpkin English Muffins from Carmel Moments

Two Peas & Their Pod

Two Peas & Their Pod made this Butternut Squash Pasta filled with all of the flavors of Fall.  You will not believe how easy this pasta is to make, I made it twice this week and it is delicious.

The Hungry Mouse

What would a weekend be without dessert? The Hungry Mouse made a Brown Sugar Pumpkin Cheesecake with chocolate shortbread crust that looks and sounds delicious. I am definitely making this soon.

Waiting on Martha created a stunning tables cape to celebrate Fall. The flowers, the place settings, everything is a feast for the eye. So many great ideas for my own holiday entertaining.

The Neo-Traditionalist published an excellent list of reader recommended books this week. As someone who is a voracious reader I always enjoy recommendations from other book lovers.

I hope that you find something new here and of course if you have something to share please do.

Have a wonderful weekend.
