Channeling Fall...

I am so over summer!! I just want my beloved season, FALL, to come already!! Yesterday, I decided to make Oatmeal Cream Pies. They are divine!! You can find the recipe here.
I also baked pumpkin bread. My mom called and I told her what all I was doing and I said, "If I bake it, it will come." Right??


Over the weekend I was trying my hand at some candy corn bowl fillers. I awoke Monday morning to this sight. A little "elf" had stuffed my corn for me. So sweet...Do you know that song on Noggin...I don't like candy corn. Moose sings it. Such a cute song. Click here to view. You will love it!!
Are y'all decorating for Fall yet?? I am sooo ready...Oh, tomorrow I will share what I received from Jenny for our seasonal swap.

They are tooooo cute, Elise! Love them! I don't like candy corns- alone. Try them with salted peanuts-mmm. The perfect mix of sweet and salty.:) Noggin is so sweet, too! Lori

Yummy! I love fall food! Pumpkin, apples, cinnamon...I can't wait! I love oatmeal cream pies and never thought about making my own. I am going to make some for sure!
And those stuffed candy corn are an adorable idea, I might just make me some of those too!

Thank you so much for sharing the oatmeal cream pie recipe. I have a friend who has been searching for one. I'll send her here to take a look.
I like your Candy Corn...makes me want to go out and buy some.
I can't wait for fall either. I love it when the leaves change color...it's so beautiful!

I am SO ready for fall too!!! Those Oatmeal pies look to die for!!!

Nichole said...

I have a post set up for Monday asking people when they put out their fall decor. I am sooo ready for fall!! Our fall like weather right now isn't helping the itch either!

Love your candy corns. Very cute!

Amy R. said...

Hmmm, I just love the oatmeal cream pies! Do you deliver?? The candy corns are adorable. I am ready for fall too, but have not started any decorating; still working on the basics. Can't wait to show you the backsplash. It is almost done.

Farmgirl Paints said...

OH my! Those oatmeal creme pies look amazing. I love them!!! Fall is my favorite too.

I don't start with fall decorations until Sept. 1st. It's always sad to say goodbye to summer here. It's so short and fleeting and you know Fall leads to WINTER...ugh!

I am so over summer as well -- especially since we've hit 90ยบ (with awful humidity!) every day for the past week. Very rare for Maine.

I'm ready for fall and I love how you're channeling it at your house :) I've started looking up old fall favorites and some new recipes too. Can't wait!

Your candy corn bowl fillers are darling...

Enjoy the getting ready!

Jenn@Spejory said...

I'm ready for fall too. Oatmeal cream pies? I'm drooling. I have to try those after I make whoopie pies.

I'm getting ready to make whoopie pies for my son. We used to get them at an Amish market, but we moved and can't find them anymore.

Michelle said...

Yep, I'm with you...looking forward to the arrival of fall! The weather has actually been cooler around here for the past few days - like a nice fall day :) The candy corns are really adorable!

Brittny said...

Hey, just wanted to publicly testify that your oatmeal patties are SO good. Thanks!

Ruth said...

I am definitely ready for fall. I love the candy corn. So adorable.
