The Coffee & the Pumpkin Pie



Hello there darlings!
Hope you all the most splendid week full of plenty of sugar and spice and everything nice.  This week has been so busy for me so far with an impromptu trip to Philly to pick up a Rhodes piano we had in storage at my inlaws.  All this excitement, moving, and busyness has me far behind in my planning for Christmas.  Can you believe I don't have a single decoration up in my house yet besides a vase full of my grandmother's vintage Christmas balls?  Can you believe I am going to post photos from two months ago...hehe.  Anyhow, these photos are from a while as you probably can tell...hope you don't mind:)   Autumn has come and gone all too fast and the colorful leaves that once laced the trees have been replaced by glistening white snow.

As for today, I'm really in the mood for something scrumptious, so I'm thinking of whipping up something sweet and spicy...and my grandmother's recipe for pfefferkuchen seems like the perfect thing to tackle.  Christmas Eves for my family were always spent at my grandmother's celebrating with a traditional German meal and the night always concluded with German goodies such as stollen, marzipan chocolates, and good old pfefferucken.

Now that I have awakened my sweet tooth, I leave you with one more thing before I go.  The lovely Jul of Life is a Romantic Poem tagged me in her Christmas wishlist so here I go:
