Two weekends ago, I went to Canton to visit my sister, her husband and my niece for my sister's birthday. We decided to go apple picking because we'd never done it before. It was a beautiful fall day, and we had so much fun taste testing and hunting for the best apples.

My sister and I each filled a bag of about 40+ apples for only $5! The staff at Dunlap's Orchard in Clinton, Ohio was friendly and knowledgeable, and their apple cider was delicious.

This weekend, Shawn and I put our domestic pants on and made an apple pie - our first one ever.
We followed this apple pie recipe {for the most part}.

Moxyn enjoyed eating all the apple peels.

Shawn and I also enjoyed some spiked apple cider while we made our apple pie.
The recipe called for a 4:1 apple cider to rum ratio, some apple and orange slices and a couple cinnamon sticks.
Bring the cider, apple and orange slices and cinnamon sticks to a boil.
Remove from heat and add the rum.

We took the cider and apple pie to a housewarming party for our former neighbors and both were a hit. Especially after a rigorous game of one-hand tap, backyard football.

I haven't been this domestic since I used to do laundry before I got married {yes, Shawn does the laundry - I'm spoiled}.

P.S. I'm talking about my three favorite fall trends over at Capital Style!
