My October Front Porch

My October Porch

The weather here in central Florida  is getting a little cooler as we get closer to the end of October. Not cold like up north, but for the last two days, the high has been 79 degrees F.  We can still have the temp go back up and probably will, but the last two days have been beautiful. Blue skies, low humidity, and a light breeze beckon me outdoors. After months of intense humidity and heat, it’s a pleasure to sit on the porch.


Baked Apple

Easy Fall Desserts – Cinnamon Pumpkin Muffins & Baked Apples


I love sweet things but try to make less sweet healthier choices.  Fall is a time for two healthy, tasty favorites – pumpkins and apples. There are many creative ways pumpkin can be incorporated into your diet, including desserts, soups, salads, preserves and even as a substitute for butter. Eating pumpkin is good for the heart. The fiber, potassium and vitamin C content in pumpkin all support heart health.

Roasted Eggplant & White Hummus

Roasted Eggplant & White Bean Hummus


I love hummus and eat it often with vegetables and bean chips.  I’ve had regular hummus, black bean hummus, and white bean hummus.  I recently discovered Roasted Eggplant & White Bean Hummus which gives it a new spin on the classic recipe. My favorite grower at the local farmer’s market is producing a bumper eggplant crop right now and brought Roasted Eggplant & White Bean Hummus to sell.  I tried it and I was hooked.

My Mostly Dollar Tree Halloween Table With Treats



I made my Halloween table with several items from Publix, my printer, and the rest is from Dollar Tree. Several weeks ago,  I was shopping at Publix supermarket when I spied the Halloween display. I was drawn to the furry spiders. I bought a large one and two small ones. The next week they had added the colored light ghosts which looked so cute. I then had many ideas of how I would use them in a table. (more…)
