While the start of November had been warm and freakishly sunny, this past weekend the weather started to turn, and a more appropriate seasonal display reared its head. Autumn is almost gone, rains and winds from the north are ruling the lands. It's at this time where the comfort of the home is so important. But I also like to go out as much as I can and take in the seasonal change. It won't be long until festive lights and decorations hang inside my home, but until then I want to revel in the beauty of the dark side.
Playing aside, there is another way of heating up: baking. I got the new cookbook from Nigella Lawson called "Simply Nigella" as well as a old favorite, which I didn't own before: "The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook". Both are very inspirational. I made lemon bars today, and snapped some shots while the bars were cooling. Of course I had to cut a piece, even though they weren't firm enough to be cut into. You can find the recipe here. Baking these got me reminiscing about my Simple Cut-Out Sugar Cookies I made last Holiday Season. I can't wait to get the tree up and decorate, especially when the ones in our garden start to wither away.
