Another month of 2014 has passed! Where is the time going?Today I’m back with September in a Nutshell! Since many of you seemed to enjoy / appreciate the August recap, I thought it was something I should continue. With Fall Cookie Week and so much more, September was a busy month here on IBC!
Around the house I accomplished a few projects. In the kitchen, I got organized with my DIY Peg Board. I also updated some wall decor in my upstairs hallway with these DIY Picture Ledges. And I finished painting my basement stairwell. I welcomed fall with a few other projects including my painted gourds, restyled bookcases in my office, and a quick guide on making grocery store flowers look fabulous. Finally, and most notably, I shared my Fall Home Tour with you.
In the kitchen, I tried some new dishes. I experiemented with pasta and created this One Pan Chicken Apple Sausage Pasta as well as some Antipasto Kabobs. And there were some fall-inspired treats including my take on Pumpkin Bars and a delicious Caramel Apple Pie Martini.
And finally, I ended September on a sweet note with the Third Annual Fall Cookie Week. In case you missed any of the recipes, all of them are linked up here:
Spiced Apple Cake Cookies
Peanut Butter Sprinkle Cookies
Soft Pumpkin Sugar Cookie
Maple Cream Sandwich Cookies
Pumpkin Pecan Tassies
Buckeye Brownie Cookies
Salted Caramel Coconut Thumbprints
White Chocolate-Dipped Soft-Batch Butterscotch Cookies
And that’s a wrap! As always, thanks for your comments, emails, likes, feedback, and social shares throughout the month. They help more than you know. Please let me know in the comments what your favorites were for September and what you’d like to see more of in the future.
Hope you’re having a stellar week!

Among the many things I love about the change of seasons is checking out the new home decor lines at some of my favorite stores. As many of you know, I’m a big Target fan. Their Threshold home decor line is fabulous. They have the one and only Nate Berkus, and have recently been teaming […]
Wow. As much as I LOVE Fall Cookie Week (and I hope you do as well), it has put me a bit behind in keeping you up to date with what’s been happening around here. Even though I’ve spent a good deal of time in the kitchen lately, there have been other events that I’m […]
Well friends, this is the last day of Fall Cookie Week. Not to give myself a pat on the back, but I think this was probably the best FCW yet. It’s so interesting to look back at the photos, styling, and recipes of the past years to see how it’s grown and improved. I hope […]
Martha Stewart made me do it. I really wanted something caramelly for this year’s Fall Cookie Week. So, when I saw this recipe for Salted Caramel Coconut Thumbprints, I knew I had a winner. To be completely honest with you, I usually steer clear of MS recipes. In the past, I’ve found them to be […]
Even though I shared a chocolate and peanut butter cookie recipe on Monday. I thought that another one really couldn’t hurt. The way I look at it, the more the merrier. Peanut butter and chocolate are such a winning flavor combination. Like the first recipe I baked, this cookie is actually created with a box […]
We’ve made it to the halfway point of Fall Cookie Week. Can you believe it? After today, there are only three more recipes. Do you have a favorite yet? A while back I stumbled upon this recipe for Pumpkin Pecan Tassies over on BHG and immediately knew they had to be part of FCW. I […]
Welcome back to Fall Cookie Week (FCW) ! I hope you are enjoying yourself and gathering plenty of delicious inspiration. Earlier this year, my friends and I took a trip to Vermont for another friend’s wedding. While we were there, I picked up a couple bottles of Vermont maple syrup. It’s the state’s specialty, so […]
I interrupt Fall Cookie Week for a very important message (Don’t worry, there’s still a cookie recipe for today. Click here.) Today, I’m taking a break from baking to share a quick and easy decorating idea. I teamed up with Laura of Finding Home and a few other fabulous ladies to share decor ideas throughout […]
