How many of you are coffee lovers like me? Every morning I need a cup of joe to get me going before work! I'm also one of those people who love their coffee with tons of flavor, no plain ol' black coffee for me.

As I sit here typing this post, I feel a cool Minnesota fall breeze flowing through the window. Weather like this always makes me crave soups and casseroles! In fact, we had this amazing Cabbage Roll Casserole for dinner tonight! Fall is truly my favorite time of year and I always get excited when the leaves start changing colors and the temps start dropping.

Have you ever been to a Smashburger before? If not, you're truly missing out! Their food is quite amazing! They handcraft their burgers and the chicken is so flavorful and good! They also have some unique sides, shakes and even a veggie burger! It's fresh and fast!

I have a confession. I'm pretty new to eating curry. It's definitely not something we grew up with in our central Minnesota hotdish and German food eating family! My younger sister, Shantel studied abroad last summer. Her first stop was Croatia, then she stopped in London to visit an online friend of hers. While she was traveling, she tried a curry really similar to this, then came home and made it for me shortly after.

One thing I always look forward to in the fall is.... apples! 

I planted a Honey Crisp apple tree in our yard last year, and we already had apples this year! 

They tasted amazing and it makes me so excited for our own apples in the years to come. 

My Dad's apple tree is an early harvest compared to most. His apples start dropping off the tree in mid August, so I had to get creative and mastermind some new apple recipe ideas!
