    I’M SO EXCITED! Can’t wait to try the breakfast french toast, the acorn kisses, the pumpkin granola and the carmel apple bars. I will make the cranberry apple pumpkin bunt cake again as that was a huge hit at our church potluck. Good thing we have the rest of October and all of November to do these on delicious recipes before Christmas is upon us! You are my “go to” girl for so many things Mary! Thank you!
