Happy Friday kids!

Been spending as much time as I can at the beach swimming, surfing, etc...
Our weather here on cape cod has been amazing; non-stop sun for weeks on end.
We got very lucky this summer with abundant sunshine.
You need to see the beauty....
Love to see surfboards...I feel at home.
Surfer girls waiting on swells (waves).
Not a great day for surf BUT a perfect day for stand up paddleboard.
I'm saving my money for a new stand up board!
Hopefully next summer I'll have a new board!
Can you see the seal on the left side (middle)?
Ben & Jerry's has a new flavor: pumpkin cheesecake. I don't need to tell you how good it is right?
The pumpkin bread mix from Trader Joe's is REALLY good.
These are ok. What I love is the price, far cheaper than others.
These pumpkin-like blondies weren't that good.
Didn't taste like pumpkin, tasted like a spiced candle.
Was asked to create a couple recipes for Kretschmer.
Any suggestions?

  1. Thanks for sharing my S'mores Swirl Brownies! Have a great weekend!

  2. those BLUE sky pics and water - so tranquil. love.

    Have always wondered how the TJs pumpkin bread mix stands up (as judged by someone who knows how to cook and bake and can make their own from scratch stuff) and so I am impressed by your assessment!

    love the links as always!

  3. Thanks for including me in your Friday links. Loving all these fall recipes. Definitely my favorite time of year! Still drooling over that pumpkin bread from TJ's ever since I saw it on Instagram. I think I need to make some AFTER I try the mac & cheese hamburger buns. Sounds like a well balanced meal to me these days. ;)

  4. The pumpkin cheesecake ice cream caught my attention first, I need to replicate that! And then I opened the link to the mac n cheese burger...!!! I died

  5. Oh those gorgeous blue shots! You transported me! Loved all these Friday links...I can't believe that fall is here! Thank you for sharing!

  6. Thanks for including my Chicken Pot Pie in a whole wheat crust! And, most importantly, thanks for letting me know that Ben & Jerrys now has a new pumpkin flavor! Yuuuummmyy!

  7. I'm so happy that summer has decided to stick around longer! Great shots, Dawn, I'll keep my fingers crossed that Ben and Jerry's pumpkin cheesecake ice cream will find its way into my freezer very soon!

  8. Please do no ever stop your Friday links. They are the best around...really!! Thank you!

  9. Pumpkin season is HERE!! Love your Friday links.
    Fr the wheat germ, see how it does as a stand-in for breadcrumbs in something like schnitzel??

  10. can't wait to see what you do w the wheat germ - I have a whole bottle left too!

  11. Can't wait to read My Paris Kitchen! And those Cape Cod photos are gorgeous.

  12. The weather looks perfect there. It was a dreary weekend here but the week looks great. Stay away winter! Those pumpkin pie cookies are adorable and if you need me I'll be on that candy blog the rest of the day :)

  13. But there are disposable blenders..I used to dream of dreaming of this https://mykitchenadvisor.com/best-single-serve-blenders/ 
..and I thought it was just a fantasy, but it happens in reality
