We are home and let me tell you, I am so happy to no longer be trapped in a car. We spent our four day holiday this past weekend in TN looking for a home to buy. As exciting as it was, it was also the most stressful. I’ve never felt more stressed in my life.

I already get migraines and stress is a major trigger. Can you guess how I spent my time looking at houses? In severe pain… It was so bad that I couldn’t even think. And I had no choice but to be present and participate in our grand house hunt.

Our realtor was amazing, though! She wasn’t pushy. She kept her cool as we went back and forth between a few properties, unable to decide. And she bought us dinner at the cutest little bar and brewery. If you ever need a realtor in the state of TN, let me know. I’ve got a good one for you!

After two full days of trying to decide which home was right for us, would be easy to rent out, and would be easy to sell in the future; we finally found it. Our home for the next 2 to 3 years, hopefully, longer. I am over the moon about it. It has a good sized kitchen, two pantries, and I will have studio space with perfect lighting.

I am ready to move so I can bake delicious little treats for all of my new neighbors. I hope they have their fat pants ready, haha!

You will need yours too for these to die for bars.

There have been so many apple recipes so far this fall. I fall in love with each one I come across. And I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate apple into a dessert so I’m always falling in love.

When I first saw apple cider donuts I was inspired to make these glazed apple cinnamon rolls. But I didn’t want to stop there. I wanted to bake many things with apple cider.

These apple-y/creamy bars are nothing short of amazing. Only two simple layers are involved: a buttery sugar cookie crust and a creamy apple cider filling. The tops are dusted lightly with powdered sugar to finish it all off.

These spiced cider bars are definitely one of the best ways to enjoy your favorite fall cider.
