We all have our morning routines and we guess that’s why it wouldn’t be any surprise to you that our routines consist of what we call our “daily obsessions!”  Most people enjoy sipping on their cup of coffee as they read the morning paper or checking out what’s new on Facebook.  Well maybe from time to time we may do the same, but for the most part our mornings starts off browsing our favorite sites.

My husband often tells me that I have the sense of smell to that of a police dog.  Though I know he’s saying it in a sarcastic way, he is right!  Many of my life’s memories involve some sort of distinct aroma.  I can remember the smell of the hot summer days of my childhood. Most didn’t have air-conditioning then, which allowed the smell of fresh cut grass and hydrangeas into our home.

During my pregnancy with my oldest daughter Morgan, I can remember that the scent of pumpkin candles made me nauseous! In fact, walking through fragrance departments became difficult.  I would literally have to hold my breath and pray that I made it out of there without being sick!  Hard to believe that now since perfume and scented candles are one of my weaknessess!  My perfume scents seem to be seasonal.  I have my lighter spring/summer scents, and my stronger fall/winter scents.  Of course I also have some special scents that fall in between.  Here’s a list of what I am wearing this fall season.  Stay tuned, it may change as early as next week.

This will work with any pie dough recipe, or you can simply use the same dough recipe I posted with the Great Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie.  Rollers are an old yet simple cinnamon and sugar pastry that go great with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee or tea.   A nice way to use up any leftover dough and the kids will love them!

1 stick of softened butter

Sugar

Cinnamon

Roll out dough with rolling pin to the same thickness you would as if you were making a pie.

Spread dough with a stick of softened butter.  Make a sugar and cinnamon mixture to your liking and sprinkle over butter.  Roll it up lengthwise, cut into 1-1 ½ inch pieces.  Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

This drink says everything fall!

Mix together 1 cup of apple cider and 1 shot of caramel vodka.  Add a cinnamon stick to garish.

You can serve this drink cold or warm.  To serve warm, simply heat the apple cider with the cinnamon stick then pour into your favorite mug.  Add the shot of caramel vodka and enjoy the scent and taste of fall!
