Right now, sitting inside my sister’s belly is our little harvest pumpkin— or at least so he looks to be from the shape he’s turning my sister’s tummy into.  Baby Michael Adam Coles, is due on Thanksgiving, giving us something to be very thankful for.  In celebration of the upcoming event, we threw an autumn themed baby shower for Baby Micheal (which I believe I will always call him, as “Baby Rachel” has stuck with my niece).  It was a blast.  We had baby themed pumpkin carving, fall food, and pumpkin cheesecake (YUMMM).  This week, I’ll be posting the following recipes:  Caramel Apples, Spinach Quiche, Pumpkin Cheesecake (with gingersnap crust and a caramel swirl topping), and Apple Spice Muffins.  We also had salad, cinnamon rolls, apple tarts, but they’ve already been posted (so check them out!).

Here are a few pictures to wet your appetite:.
