September might be my favorite month. I love when summer lingers, reluctant to transform into fall. And, I’m not going to lie, I do enjoy the routine and the hopefulness that comes with the beginning of the school year.
I’m calling these A.C.A.B. Pecan Bites, named after a culinary code that my husband and I seem to agree on: when all else fails, *A*dd *C*heese *A*nd *B*acon.

The Fruitarian has been begging for another taste of this pudding. Of the hundreds of recipes on this humble blog, this pudding, and the parfait I made with it, are his most memorable.
There are some really fantastic snack items out there, and I want to share with you a few of my all time favorite products. No strings attached, no payment given, just the honest truth about some snacks I actually use and love.
And as long as I have the equivalent of two 5-gallon buckets full of fresh plums in my house, I suppose some plum desserts are in order. I adapted my favorite peach crisp recipe to incorporate the plums, and this delightful late summer dessert was born.

As much as I wanted to make a chocolate zucchini bread or muffin, I’ve been trying to push myself into other flavors. It turns out, a spiced zucchini muffin with walnut crumb topping was exactly perfect for today.
