Lawrence Farms Orchards, Newburgh NY

If you live in New York you are lucky enough to get all four seasons. Fall happens to be my favorite, the crisp air, the fall foliage and the smell of hot apple cider. When October comes around you know it’s time to go apple & pumpkin picking. We recently visited Lawrence Farm Orchards in Newburgh, NY.  As soon as you pull in you can smell the hot apple cider and warm apple cider donuts. Since it was an early spring, the apple trees bloomed early which caused and early crop so we could not pick the apples off the trees this year. Over all we all had a great time.


Homemade ice cream sandwich

On a hot summer day, there is nothing more perfect then an ice cream sandwich. Even in the early fall I crave one last summer treat before it gets too cold. Normally, you would drive to the nearest gas station, or if you are lucky your neighborhood still gets an ice cream truck to get your ice cream sandwich fix. I personally like to make mine home made. I tend to cheat by buying tollhouse cookie dough already made, and pop them in the oven. After, they are baked let them cool on a wire rack. After they are slightly cooled off, grab your favorite ice cream flavor and take a great big scoop  and plop it right on one of the cookies. Place another cookie right on top and there you have it!  Your own homemade ice cream sandwich.

Cheers & Love
