Hi friends! I’m back from a very long summer blogging hiatus, and so happy to be bringing you sweet treats once more. It was quite an eventful summer – I went to two weddings, two bridal showers, and took a couple of gorgeous vacations.

Anyway! I’m guest posting over at The Spiffy Cookie today while Erin finishes up the madness that is Ph.D. dissertating. Click on over to get the recipe for these perfectly autumnal pumpkin bars!
