Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 89
It’s been a while since I last wrote a post about baking ideas. I’m glad to be back writing about some of my newest, latest & favorite recipes.
Who loves to bake during the Fall? I sure do! Especially when the weather is a little colder than usual.
You’ll see me inside wearing a cozy sweater, lighting an autumn candle, all while preparing to bake my head off.
I’m here to share pumpkin, chocolate, cinnamon, and other types of desserts to sit back, scroll down, and add some of these to your things-to-bake list.
Personal Note from Janine
When we visited my mother-in-law in Vermont, she mentioned she had a molasses cookie recipe. She searched all her cookbooks, only to not find the beloved cookie.
She did find her gingersnaps recipe, so I copied it and brought it home. We planned to make them while I was visiting, but with all the craziness of the memorial, we ran out of time.
My mother-in-law Margaret prides herself on her baking abilities. And recently, her church had a pie contest. Margaret made her apple pie recipe that my father-in-law loved! She always made it for him as an anniversary present.
Well, Margaret’s apple pie recipe won the contest! I’m sure my father-in-law smiled at her when she heard the news!
So, I plan to get the recipe this weekend and make it tomorrow! I plan to share it soon with you all!
Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy time with family and friends!

Latest Obsession – My Favorite Compost Products
This year, the state of California made it a law that we have to add compost to our yard debris bins.
And with all the baking and cooking our family does, composting is an essential part of our daily life.
I was composting our leftover food, but I wasn’t doing it full-time.
I couldn’t find the best scenario for composting. The bags always fell apart on me. Well, I finally found my favorite bags!
I absolutely love these compostable bags! No more tearing or leaking. These bags are the best. I have bought and used many of these bags, and this brand is fantastic so far. Plus, you get 100 in a container, so running out of them will take a while.
The stainless steel bin is from my friend’s company. Here is the link to her product.
The upside of helping the environment is incredible! Also, our trash output is practically down to nothing!
