The Quotable Kitchen

My sweet coworker friend told me she'd bake me anything i want for my birthday.  Girl loves to cook, and girl's got mad baking skills.  Girl also writes a cooking blog called The Quotable Kitchen, where she taunts me with things i can't make and i get extremely jealous over her boyfriend's blog design genius.  Whatever.  At least this template can support bigger pictures without cutting them off.  I can live with this.

So for my birthday treat, since it's fall, and i looooove the fall, i think i'll need to indulge in something pumpkin.  After checking my pinterest board, it seems there's an inordinate amount of bacon, cheese, and bacon and cheese baked in i had to look a little harder for something pumpkin.  But i'm taking this mission very seriously.

This was the first choice-it's the salted caramel-ness that screams "make me" but she just made some delicious pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting, and this might be too similar.  Next year, salted caramel, next year.

Pumpkin. Spice. Macaroons.

or, you know....these salted caramel ones won't be turned away.

How 'bout this?  It's isn't pumpkin, but it's definitely fall.

Yep, caramel apple and cheesecake?  Cheese for the win!

Do you have a fave fall dessert?  Which would you pick for your birthday treat?  Go say hi to Chef Kel, and see which one she chose to make!

All of these look scrumptious. I'd pick a spice cake with caramel icing if it were my birthday.
