It’s officially September, and that means that we are getting ready to buckle down for fall. Fall is definitely my favorite season! First of all, I adore the cooler weather—I just wasn’t cut out to enjoy the heat of summer. Plus, I am all about pumpkin-flavored everything—especially when it comes to desserts.
Between entertaining and attending holiday parties, it can be easy to fall into an unhealthy food rut. If you’re in charge of bringing the desserts, then you probably feel some pressure to make a treat that everyone will love. The good news is that these treats can definitely be tasty and healthy. Never fear being in charge of desserts again!
