It’s no secret that I love fall. Pretty sure that I’ve been telling you all this for weeks now. But it’s oh so true! I absolutely love fall. The season always brings back fond memories of my first “real” job. I say real because it wasn’t my typical summer babysitting job. For me this just felt like a job job. All during high school I worked at an apple orchard outside of Livingston, IL and I enjoyed every minute of it. One would think that I’d be tired of eating apples to this day, but that is not so. I still find apples to be quite tasty and even like to make foil baked apples for a quick snack.
A few weeks ago my children were out of school on a Friday so we decided to enjoy the beautiful, fall day together with some friends. We were hosted over at Eckert’s to pick apples, pumpkins and just explore the farm. Eckert’s has this really great fun farm that the kids simply adored.
So much fun!
And now for that dandy recipe…

I wish you could smell this through the computer screen. Seriously smells soooo good.
If you are local to St. Louis or the Metro East then be sure to visit one of the Eckert’s family farms. You find a convenient location on the Illinois side of the river in the following cities: Millstadt, Belleville, and Grafton.
Happy Fall Y’all!
