Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's my favorite time of year once again- autumn is in the air and the season of harvests, festivals and spectacular changes are upon us.  I think I love this season so much because it embraces my need for change.  While most people avoid change at all cost, I crave the need to mix things up.  Autumn is all about change. Change in temperature, change in clothing, a change in the colors of leaves and a change in my morning routine.  As the weather gets cooler it's a time where I take a moment to … [Read more...]
