Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 35
Hello, weekend and happy October,
I still can’t believe it’s October.
Even though it is getting closer to cold weather, I will admit I am looking forward to staying inside to bake delicious desserts that will warm up the house with the smell of pumpkin and cinnamon.
So who’s with me? I say it’s about time we craft up Autumn decor and create delicious desserts while also decorating the house with a pumpkin (or two)!
Check out this everything fall collection where you’ll find some new recipes to add to your list of favorites, decor to keep forever, and crafts to create with loved ones!
Have a splendid Saturday!
A Personal Note from Janine
Have you ever had a Nothing Bundt Cakes?
I finally ate one, and it was yummy.
Well, I do like their cakes, but I think my carrot cake recipe is better. And that’s just my humble opinion.
This week, I made a mini bundt cake with a bit of twist. I baked my bundt cakes and then sculpted them into white mini pumpkins. The base is my carrot cake recipe which is so delicious. Well, this fall dessert is adorable and so delicious! And I think they look pretty realistic.
It was popular over on Instagram this week, which makes me happy.
Okay, this week, I’ve been busy in the kitchen creating desserts for you. It’s like I’m training to become a contestant on The Great British Baking Show. Yikes, and as a result, our kitchen is my laboratory, and it’s messy too!
I must let you know that my dream to be a food blogger is pretty strong these days. But I still do love decorating our home, so don’t panic. I’ll still blog about decor and crafts.
Enjoy this Saturday, Chitchat, and thanks for joining me today!
This Week’s Inspiration -All Things Fall
I am calling all apple fans! This dessert is a must, and it’s my Apple Dutch Baby Recipe, and it’s superb if I do say so myself.
It oozes with the smell of crisp, cooked apples along with the sweet taste of cinnamon, nutmeg, and custard! Oh my! I am drooling just talking about this dessert.
I think you get the gist of this recipe. It’s amazing. Check it out or don’t. Just know you’ll be missing out on one mouthwatering treat.
These cute mini pumpkin bundt cakes are moist carrot cake and cream cheese frosting recipes. It’s the perfect dessert for this season to share with family and friends!
And besides, it’s shaped like a pumpkin, so of course, it’s going to be adorable!
The taste of the sweet cream cheese frosting melts in your mouth along with the inviting flavor of carrot cake! You will be coming back for seconds (or thirds)!
I think we can all agree that wreaths make all the difference on the front porch. So why not make one, right? And besides, it’s more fun creating than buying a wreath.
Here is one of my favorite fall wreaths on the blog because of how simple it is to put together!
It’s perfect for the front porch, in the window, or inside! Either way, it will make a statement within your home!
As we begin to spend more time indoors, this time of year screams for decor. I love to decorate with garlands, so I got busy and made this fun felt project.
I love any felt decor. Felt draws me in with its inviting and cozy look, and this garland is the definition of a welcoming, warm look! It’s one of the many pieces of cozy fall home decor I have created.
If you’re looking for a stylish and straightforward piece of decor to create in your free time, here it is!

This Week’s Tip – Trader Joe’s Israeli Couscous Recipe
Israeli Couscous Recipe
Have you had this coucous?
The coucous is bigger than the popular pearls and I love recipe that is on the back of the box. I usually don’t have shallots on hand so I saute chopped onions. And instead of raisins, I chop up dried cranberries. One of these days, I will cook some yams or butternut squash and add them to this recipe.

If you don’t have Trader Joe’s near you, here is a link to have it delivered to your house.
