I greatly apologize for the slacking lack of recipes and posts this past week!  As I mentioned earlier, I was home visiting family last week, went to the lake cabin for Labor Day weekend and you know how it is returning home after being gone for any amount of time.  I just needed a few days to get things back in order.  I promise that “getting things back in order” will mean me unpacking my bag finally this weekend!

Lucky for all of us, just because I took a little break, does not mean there was any shortage of other sweet teeth making inventive creations this week.

Here are a few of the recipes that caught my eye:

Toasted Oatmeal Cookie Butter Bars by Laura of Tutti Dolci posted on Bake Your Day.  Oatmeal is one of the ingredients that makes me think of warm, fall comfort food and these bars fit that category exactly.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars from Cookies & Cups.  I am not a cheesecake lover, but the apples and caramel would do it for me with these bars!  I must be excited for fall judging by the recipes I bookmarked this week!

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles from a Bitchin’ Kitchen:  what a great combination of spices and flavors.

Asian Chicken Salad with Sesame Chili Vinaigrette from Pinch of Yum.  I’m pretty sure that this dressing made with sweet chili garlic sauce would taste good on an old sock.  (How stunning is Lindsay’s photo by the way??)

Pumpkin Spice Latte from Brenda at A Farmgirl’s Dabbles.  Yes, you read this correctly!  Now you can make your very own Pumpkin Spice Latte every fall morning!

Thank you for your patience and understanding and I promise many more good things to come next week!  Have a great fall weekend!
