Falling Back and a Thanksgiving Round Up
It’s that time of year to fall back, and
when most of us in the US will be turning back our clocks.
It’s also time when my internal clock falls to comfort food. . .
Harvesting, Gathering, and Thanksgiving!

Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
Delicious fall back images, Mary. Temps dropped to 20’s/30’s overnight, here. Definitely time for cozy comfort foods.
What a terrific compilation! The photos alone are enough to whet the appetite, but I read almost all of the recipes (not hard, thank you!), and my mouth is watering.
Your images are so lovely, I will revisit this posting repeatedly for inspiration. Thank you for putting together Thanksgiving inspiration. I just Love your blog.
Oh dear me, why did I look at this sumptuous post before breakfast, Mary?? You have my stomach grumbling for each of those tempting recipes! Thanks for all the Fall inspiration. Happy weekend to you.
Beautiful imagery and recipes!

Cream of Plenty Soup, yum! How perfect for this weekend! Cold blustery weather this weekend. Even here in Florida , it will be cold tonight.💨🍂 have a great weekend!
Another gorgeous post, Mary! Love the tablescapes and recipes.
I gained weight just looking at the pictures! Lots of great recipes for the upcoming months. Thanks!
Oh my goodness…you are so gifted! Everything is so beautiful! I want to come to your house, right now!! lol
Blessings to your day,
Mary, I took a quick look as I sip my morning coffee. I’ll be back to link back to these for a complete look. I’m going to make a few of these treats. Yum! It’s in the 50s here this morning. Yipee! Sadie and I are off for a walk shortly to take in the beauty of the morning. Thank you for all the “falling”.
I AM having house guests over Thanksgiving so will be borrowing several of these recipes for sure!!! I may make the Cream of Plenty soup tomorrow!!! It is going to be very cold and windy, perfect day for making soup:) Thanks for the look, I mean, FALL back:):)
Very pretty Mary, all my favorite colors! That gratin is really calling to me, it sounds great! Happy November:@)
Hi Mary!!! You are such an inspiration. I am excited to try the Plymouth Popcorn.
Mary, I made your pumpkin, cranberry and pecan bread last year for a potluck and everyone loved it, so I got the ingredients (i can pumpkin purée and measured out the other ingredients in separate zip-lock bags) and put them in small square baskets with a pretty colorful kitchen towel and printed out the instructions and gave them as gifts for our closest friends last Christmas… Lots of Ooohs and Aaaahs received…
Amazing recipes, decor items! Oh!!!!! I hope the extra hour is not wasted. Falling temps, but not for long in our neck of the woods.
I would love to savor a bite of your cranberry, apple, pumpkin bundt cake and all the featured yummy recipes today.
Great post. Thanks. Enjoy your weekend.
Just when I thought I would be sad that Halloween is over I read this and can’t wait for the days ahead!! I wanted to make so many of these recipes last year, so much to do so little time! I want to make it all~ maybe I’ll just stop by your house and sit at the stunning lakeside table and enjoy a pumpkin shooter, apple pie bourbon and an pie crust leaf or three :) Thank you so much for the round up Mary, and the kick start to November!
Going over to your house for Thanksgiving… Everything looks very tasty and also amazing…
Your pictures are beautiful and yummy.
You have the most breathtaking photos of your ever so creative work!!!…you make my day!
Wonderful photos and place settings! Love them all.
Oh wow, every one of your tablescapes are so beautiful and I love all the recipes too. Thanks so much for linking to Inspire Me.
Such an amazing post, Mary! Your photos and all of those amazing pics….I don’t know how you manage to get it all done and into a post in a timely manner. I always seem to fall behind and arrive late to a parties…LOL!
