One of my favorite things to do is spend a whole Sunday in the kitchen, cooking and baking and this past Sunday I did just exactly that. I burned a pumpkin candle, drank some wine, watched Grey's Anatomy reruns on Netfilx, was a little bit #basic but that's okay. I'd been wanting to try a braided lattice pie crust for a while now and I'm happy I finally got the chance to try it out. I always use this pie crust recipe from the Barefoot Contessa (I swear by it- it's the easiest and best recipe I've tried) and this filling recipe from Smitten Kitchen.
Once the temperatures drop (even if it's just down to 70 here in Texas) I'll take any and every excuse to partake in a fall activity. My fall bucket list starts with...
Watching endless episodes of Gilmore Girls
Attend a gorgeous fall wedding at Pippin Hill Vineyard in November
Finish our kitchen renovation before Thanksgiving (all that's left is backsplash & drawer pulls!)
Bake a pumpkin pie for a Friendsgiving
Go apple picking and eat cider donuts at Carter Mountain Orchard
Plan our trip to Washington D.C.
