Happy Fall!

Yup, it’s called FALL around these parts. Probably originated by someone whose job it was to rake leaves, and let’s be honest, even with a leaf blower that can average winds of a category 1 hurricane, gathering up all those leaves and bagging them really isn’t something you will have to break up a fight between your kids over who gets to do it.

In my yard I have 3 HUGE oak trees and a really big pecan tree.  The leaves on the pecan tree are still green and the oaks are still not dropping very many yet, but I will share a photo when they start.

Anyway, I had let this blog sit for awhile, something else I will get around to talking about in the future, but for now, I want to get some little treasures I’ve came across, posted for those who might enjoy them.

In the mean time, HAPPY FALL!!

This is truly a delicious cake, made either with true Tennessee Whiskey, such as Jack Daniels, or by using the non alcohol substitute noted below. Either way, the alcohol will evaporate from the whiskey during baking, but leave a light hint of the whiskey’s sweet flavor when done. Continue reading “Tennessee Whiskey Cake”
