Smell of Autumn in the Air

The smell of the fallen leaves and the crackle of the fire- are these the smells that remind you that the weather has officially changed into Autumn. Or is it the smell of apple cider being mulled?
 I know for me today as the weather is growing steadily colder today, I have a apple cider candle burning and bread dough rising in the bowl.

Fondant made Easy

This week we celebrated my youngest child's first birthday. And instead of going to the store, purchasing the fondant, only to have it end up on the plate not eaten. I decided to make my own. I know something that most people would decide would be crazy to even try... but I did and it turned out wonderful. It was Marshmallow Fondant.  With only 4 ingredients being used it was so easy... Marshmallows, Powdered Sugar, Crisco for your hands, and 2 tbs of water.
Here is the link to the recipe that I found. Hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
