Autumn in New England....

A whiff of woodsmoke on the wind, the first chill in the air, the woods just edged with red and gold! We have turned the calender to September. Time to air the quilts and pick bouquets of sunflowers..let's light the first fire and put the "sweet" back in Home Sweet Home!......Susan Branch

It's time for apple orchards to open their doors to autumn! We are on the motor trail to the orchard with baskets in hand. Bring fall into your kitchen and put out your pumpkins...cloves, cinnamon and spice! Fall in love with the season!

Estelles Apple Bread
1 Cup oil
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups chopped apples, cortland and granny smith
3 cups flour
3 t. cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans

Combine oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla in small bowl and set aside. Sift flour, cinnamon, soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to oil mixture gradually. Add apples and nuts. Bake in two loaf pans for 1/2 hours at 300 degrees.

This season is filled with magic and mystery, and when we spend time reflecting on the beauty around us, we are opened to a whole new world of inspiration and love. Enjoy the season and the miracles that are already here for us.
