CULINARY CRAVINGS: APPLE CIDER DONUTS

Apple Cider Doughnut Recip

What comes to mind when you think of fall? It’s a sensory season filled with good food, crunchy leaves, rich colors, the sounds of nature… right down to the smell of fruits, nuts and spices! One of my fall favorite memories growing up was indulging in fresh, hot Apple Cider Donuts from the local farmer’s market. Now I get to introduce my little boy to this experience, hopefully making it a family tradition for seasons to come.

My family has been getting the same donuts and cider from the same market for generations. I can taste them now as I write this and while I wish I could share these scrumptious goodies with you, I did find a great recipe that will get you in the seasonal mood. Hopefully you and your children (or children-to-be!) can create a fall family tradition out of making them together. And I’m sure all of you expecting mamas could use a donut to curb your pregnancy cravings. With some cinnamon kisses – enjoy! Olivia

Four Things

The official summer season has come to a close, and with that, fall-favorite activities are revving up. While the weather is still gorgeous outside, our week is spent looking forward to Saturdays when we can explore a new place, cook up a storm, experiment with our look and take some time to do some projects around the house. Whatever your plans are for this weekend, these Four Things are our current inspirations.

  1. An apple-cranberry crisp is the perfect thing to make with all of those freshly-picked apples.
  2. Chase the chill in a maternity sweater that blooms bright.
  3. Perfect the bun with easy styling tips that will give you a chic chignon or a trendy top knot.
  4. Customize the nursery for your little one an adorable name sign.
