What is one of your favorite fall flavors?
Mine happens to be spiced apple; when I worked at Starbucks, the baristas made this drink that was their caramel spiced apple cider mixed with a shot of espresso.
It tasted like apple pie.
And to me, apple pie is irresistible.
To this day, I will order one in the fall, just to get back the memories of my time as a barista.
I wanted to make this flavor into french toast, something that I can make at home for brunch and feel fancy, when it’s too cold to go out.
It was so good, B decided he did not want to wait for me to take photographs of it, and started stealing the apples and eating them.
