China Patterns we love for a Harvest Afternoon Tea
While you may not have a complete set of a fall themed china pattern, picking up a few pieces, like teacup and saucers, or even a favorite teapot is a fun way to begin a new fall traditions. Here are some of my favorites:
"A hearty cooked salad of beets, broccoli, and onion, tossed with fresh apple, toasted pecans, and apple cider vinaigrette is a refreshing complement to the sandwiches typically served for afternoon tea."
Zucchini, Potato and Cheddar Soup is a delicious, low calorie, healthy soup that's easy to make during zucchini season or anytime throughout the year. Delicious, creamy and full of flavor in under 30 minutes! Plus, it freezes beautifully to make now and enjoy in the cold months.
These easy Apple Pie Bars or Apple Crumble Bars are a sweet treat perfect in apple season, or anytime you're craving apple pie. But easier to make. They're buttery, warmly spiced, and fall-apart tender.
This Pear Upside Down Cake is an incredibly moist and tender cake with amazing fall-inspired flavors of maple, cinnamon, and cardamom. It's a simple cake with a delicious flavor you'll love during pear season.
Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting is a classic fall dessert that's simple to make, soft, utterly delicious, and filled with warm spices. The velvety Cream Cheese Frosting makes these simple bars a standout favorite.
