Quick & Easy Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

True confession: I really, really don’t enjoy cooking. It’s not for lack of trying, though. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve attempted fun, Pinterest recipes only for them to turn out slightly-above-mediocre. People argue that cooking is creative & you can add your own flair without having to follow a strict recipe. Personally, that has never worked for me. And to people who can just whip something together, I envy you because for some reason I just suck at cooking.

That being said, I love love love baking. I love the precision of baking–if you follow the recipe strictly to a T, it will turn out well no matter what. Being a Type A, this makes my soul happy.

Good news is, it’s fall so that means it’s officially baking season! I made these easy (& healthy!!) pumpkin breakfast cookies the other week and loved them. For all you “just eyeball-it” cooks out there, this baking recipe doesn’t have to be super precise (it’s flexible & will turn out well if you generally follow the instructions), and for all you bakers out there like me, there is some precision and a guarantee that you won’t mess it up. Oh, and they only take 15 minutes to make & they’re gluten and dairy-free. Keep scrolling to find out more.

I went there for happy hour (v good) and they do brunch, so we dragged all our friends there because why not. Brunch: the gift that keeps on giving.

Dreary Fall Day, featuring L.L. Bean Boots & Apple Cider

My mom & I have an autumn tradition. Ever since I was little, every October we’d go to this tiny cider mill called Hacklebarney Farm. Once a year, I get to savor an afternoon full of crisp fall weather, apple cider everything & spending time with the fam. This annual Hacklebarney trip has become so ingrained in my year that ever since I moved out, I pick an October weekend to celebrate my bday at home…and go to Hacklebarney.

This year was no different. My mom and I picked last weekend as the annual Hacklebarney trip, and I actually counted the days until it arrived. When Hurricane Matthew threatened to bring rain up the east coast, my mom and I were a tad worried about our outdoor outing, but damnit, we were going to go to Hacklebarney no matter what.
