I sometimes make the Betty Crocker cookie mix peanut butter ones. A favorite of the family. Cookies don't last long around here. If I tell just one of the kids I made cookies, by nightfall, gone. Every last one. My daughter sends her husband to get her share, and the two boys clean up the rest. Cookies and ice cream. Good Grief! What a bunch of hungry horrors I have. Who is going to make the cookies when I am gone?

For the past year I was lucky if I wanted to just cook for the sake of feeding myself. But the cool weather is here and that autumn crisp air is making my oven scream to be utilized. Blueberry pie sounds just about right now.

It is that time of year again. They will be having the National Donation to Your Local Food Bank and the mail carriers will be picking all the bags of canned goods up. Our mail carriers here in Eastie, will be dropping them off at the church. That means plenty of pumpkin for me. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies. Even pumpkin cheesecake! It seems like nobody wants to bother cooking with pumpkin, so the church gives all the cans of donated pumpkin to me. I don't even have to ask. They make the delivery right to my door. Ah yes, my baking juices are running again.

I'll be making a quick and easy chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache topping to take to my sister's for dinner tonight.

I am coming with you. I won't be long. I just have to take a shower, do my hair, decide what I am going to wear and iron it, on second thought, never mind. Just go without me.

I made an apple galette today. First time. It was OK.

It will probably be delicious next time Andy. I've made a galette three times. First time was wonderful! Next two? Meh. Haven't bothered since. Good luck next time!

Not sure how you made the galette, but I add cinnamon and vanilla extract to the filling and sprinkle turbinado sugar on the egg-washed crust. We liked it a lot. Now that it's getting cooler, I want to do more baking.

This is the recipe I used.

I'll try it again. I thought of sprinkling sugar on the crust when it was too late.

I wish my grocery store stocked the very pretty crystal sugar that is sometimes put on pastry. I see it on their baked goods but don't find it in the bakery aisle.
