Autumn at the Draper's

Today we have been celebrating autumn's early arrival in our kitchen!
We got 2 bushels of apples and stayed up until 1:15am last night/this morning making and freezing applesauce!
We were at it again by 8am canning the rest of our tart and tangy applesauce
AND making some yummy desserts:
1. Apple butter
2. Pumpkin pie dip
3. Cinnamon and pumpkin cheesecake
crescent rolls layed out on bottom of 13x9, topped with pumpkin, cream cheese, and sugar mixture w/ cinnamon chips.  Top that with more crescent rolls and then cinnamon sugary butter goodness.  Bake at 350 until golden brown :)

Also, it is 2pm while I type this...everyone is napping in the house but me, and we still haven't showered...

I LOVE these kind of days :)

And so this blog isn't too dull and boring - a photo shoot I took with the babes in August... :)

What are you favorite foods to make when the weather turns colder?!


  1. love it as always Rachel :) esp. the photo shoot! In the fall, I like to make my knock-off pumpkin pie blizzard

  2. Love the photo shoot. Mylin, as usual, looks like quite the ham....and Sully in the last pic is priceless! ;)

    I also make a mean pumpkin pie blizzard....and our weekends are nearly consumed with apple cider simmering on the stove! :)
