It's FALL! Yay! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. Especially living in the south. We are having beautiful sunny weather in the 70's right now. What we use to call Indian Summer up north is pretty much the normal weather here, which sometimes extends all the way into December. 
The AC (which I am not a fan of) is finally off. The windows are open and the smell of fall is everywhere. Lawn mowers buzz their last breathes of summer, breezes rustling the curtains, pumpkins all around and maple scents in my Scentsy burner. Oh my goodness I love it. 
So decorating a bit for the season is part of the fun. Surfing around the Internet for ideas, I realize it's time to change up the front door wreath and the front porch. This is how is it looks now....

What's on your plate tonight? Honey Horsey Glazed Salmon???

Are you a lover of Salmon??? Well check out this recipe because it is amazingly good! lol... I love it. Mix it up with other seasonings you may like and make sure to use wild caught, not farm raised salmon and buy local if you can! This is what's for dinner tonight! Throw some fresh broccoli and a salad out there and you have a feast!

3 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tbsp Horseradish sauce
1 teas. Garlic powder
1 teas. Basil

I like to saute some fresh mushrooms up to cover the salmon with too. Whip all seasonings and sauces together. Lay Wild Caught Salmon out in a shallow pan. (I spray the bottom and sides of the pan slightly).
Poke some holes in the salmon with a fork. Pour glaze mixture over the Salmon and salt and pepper. Add the mushrooms. Bake at 350* for 20 plus minutes. Enjoy! C'mon! Can it get any easier than that?

Every room should have a little bit of whimsy! 

I did it! I actually free hand painted a tree on my wall! Yay me. lol....

I am so pleased at how this tree turned out! And also, so pleased it is done! It was kind of a spontaneous last minute decision. I mean I have always wanted to paint a tree on my wall, but I wasn't prepared to do so. But today it was pouring rain and I got the itch and looked around to see what paint I had on hand and voila!

Roasted Redskins and Sausage Casserole

I make this recipe for a large group of people that I cook for on a regular basis and they seem to love it. I have to "up" the recipe sometimes for about 40 people but I also make it for the family in smaller portions. lol.. it's so easy. And I do like easy. 

Redskin Potatoes (or creamers)
Sausage or Kielbassi (your choice)
Fresh green onions
Olive Oil to drizzle
Onion Powder
Garlic ( I use fresh and Garlic powder)
Red Pepper Flakes

Wash and cut up redskin potatoes, leave peels on. Boil for 15 minutes until tender. While the potatoes are boiling, cut the (already pre-cooked) sausage to bite size pieces. Drain the potatoes and pour all them into a baking dish. Drizzle or spray potatoes with Olive Oil. Then add bite size sausage. Season with all the seasonings listed. Chop up some green onions for added color and flavor. I use tons because I love them. I use the greens and very little of the actual onion part since it makes for a milder kick. Mix all the flavorings over the potatoes and sausage evenly. Some might like the potatoes a bit less "mashy" but I like them that way for a casserole so I kinda mash them a bit while mixing. I don't like hard potatoes in it. Put the casserole dish in the oven and bake covered for 20 minutes at 350*. Uncover to "crisp" sausage and top with more green onions in the last five minutes for looks  presentation. lol...
Note * If you don't like spicy then don't use the (Red Pepper Flakes) because they will cook up quite spicy with them!
