Here's my advice: stay inside and make something warm, sweet, and cozy. If that sounds good, click on over to Baking a Moment where Allie featured my recipe for apple walnut bread pudding with cinnamon-cider sauce from a book you may have heard of. It's just the thing for a day like today: not too hard to throw together, and it makes the house smell amazing. I'd also like to thank Kylie at Portland's The Baking Bird for featuring WINTERSWEET in her Fall 2014 Cookbook Preview. Go check out these awesome bloggers and get some recipe ideas while you're there.
Local folks, take note, I'll be at the Waltham Farmer's Market this Saturday 11/8 signing books and giving out free samples from 9:30 am to 2 pm. It's the last outdoor market of the season, so be sure to stock up on local storage vegetables and apples. The market has moved this year from its usual location at Moody St. and Main to 119 School St. There's parking in the back. Hope to see you there!
