This past weekend, my friend Amy and I got together for a fun girls’ weekend at her family’s house in the mountains. The trees are just beginning to turn, like just barely beginning, not to the all-out glory of vivid hues of yellow, gold and red, but just the very hints of what is to come in just a few short weeks. The air was also just a bit crisper than what I’ve been experiencing at home lately. Even though Amy texted me a couple of times to remember to bring my jacket, what did I forget? My jacket! Thankfully, I had packed a cardigan that I wore the entire weekend. Like, the ENTIRE weekend.

We visited a few of our favorite places for shopping, coffee and brunch and wore yoga pants and watched marathon episodes of Modern Family while we discussed the worlds’ problems of white jeans after Labor Day, Dunkin Donuts coffee versus Starbucks, and how to prepare in case of an Ebola outbreak. Believe me, we had solutions! Or at least we thought we did at the moment. We also found a little bit of time on Friday to do some cooking and baking together while it was raining. You know, I’d say that’s just what food bloggers do when they get together, but it seems like we’d be doing that whether we were food bloggers or not. Cooking and baking is just our “thing”, I guess!

These salted caramel pecan cookies were definitely one of my favorites that we made. They couldn’t have been any easier either! They are perfect for the fall with the mingling of flavors from the caramel, pecans, and the buttery cookie, but I have a feeling they’ll be happening at my house throughout the year.

We won’t talk about the five pounds I think I gained this weekend. I think it was because of the sweater. Ha!
