As you can imagine things around our household have been anything but business as usual lately. I have been in California since the middle of September helping with all of our family “business” and aching for the chance to get in the kitchen.
It’s amazing how much baking is a release for me. I completely zone out when I’m in the kitchen which can sometimes be a bad thing but mostly it’s a good thing.
These pumpkin pie bars were inspired from a recipe I found in my Grandma’s stash and I made them before I left to California. They scream of Fall and since getting back to Utah I’m excited to find the Fall has arrived! The leaves are changing colors and every time the wind blows you can hear them as they dance around the ground. It’s quite possibly one of my favorite sounds.
So as I struggle to get life back on track for my family I’ll probably be escaping to the kitchen and leaving the windows open to hear the rustle of the leaves quite often.
