Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 141
There’s nothing like savoring a delightful meal on those chilly fall and winter nights. As I prepare to hunker down for the season, I look forward to spending ample time cooking and baking in my cozy kitchen. This quote about comfort food perfectly sums up my sentiments.
“When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than warming up with a bowl of comfort food.”
So, stay and linger this weekend and hang out with me on this 31 fall favorites post.
Personal Note from Janine
I’m writing this message from my friend Leslie’s (My 100 Year Old Home) beach house in Ventura, California. After four long years, we were finally able to reunite and catch up during the past week. It was such an incredible experience to see each other again after such a long time.
We worked tirelessly into the early hours each day on holiday craft decor projects. So stay tuned. I just wanted to give you a heads-up that you can.
Before embarking on my trip, I was immersed in baking and finalizing my recipes for the week. As I left, my husband had a fridge stocked with pumpkin pancakes! I kept refining the recipe to ensure it was perfect before unveiling it this past Thursday.
I hope you can explore the recipe below, along with the other 30 fall favorites I’ve gathered for you!
Say hi in the comments, and let me know what your latest recipe you are obsessed with this fall!

This Week’s Tip – Kitchen Organizer
A couple of years ago, when planning our kitchen layout, we decided to go with pull-out drawers. However, we had to skip adding them to two cabinets due to budget constraints. I’m kicking myself for that decision now because one of those cabinets is a real hassle to access for kitchen supplies. I’m currently on the hunt for some drawer solutions to fix this.
These options seem like a great solution, and I’m considering getting them this week. My husband is all in to tackle this organizing challenge since it’s been bothering us for a while now.
Latest Obsession – Ice Maker
During my visit to Leslie’s beach house, I couldn’t help but notice her impressive collection of the latest kitchen gadgets. I particularly became obsessed with her ice maker. It was so lovely to have a constant supply of ice without the hassle of making it manually or depending on your refrigerator.
I can see why these gadgets are all the rage now; they truly offer fantastic convenience!
