Fall Party : Recipes and Giveaway!

Hey Y'all,
Our poor little blog party has been greatly lacking! I apologize :-)
We have been so ridiculously busy!
I had planned on posting this sooner, but time is love and I just had to run...etc :p
For starters I wanted to let y'all know of a giveaway my dear sis has put together. A sweet etsy vendor has graciously sponsored a candle from her shop! It is sooo adorable. I love to see creative genius. :-)  So anywhoo... don't forget to enter!
Moving forward!
Fall is upon us,  and I am loving the tiny glimpse of it that we floridians receive :-) (Today was especially lovely!)
If you find yourself having trouble getting into the season, here is a recipe that will bring you right into the swing of things!
I made this for the family last year, and we never had leftovers :-)
