It’s officially winter and time to glorify the beauty of fall and brace ourselves for cozy nights indoors. This fall’s brunch game was STRONG. I count 6 brunch pics!

Photo above is from our fall vacation to Traverse City at Bonobo Winery.

I love toast. I said this to Marc recently and he said that’s never something that’s come out of his mouth. His loss, man. Especially when I have incredible American Spoon jam to go on top.

My favorite dish at The White Horse Inn! Housemade bread and butter pickles served with fried cheese bread. Sounds weird (or does is?) but it’s really good.

I don’t really drink beer, but I am passionate about cute beer cans and bottles.

That time my brother and I accidentally had Michigan-shaped steak including the upper peninsula.

These buttered radish tartines I made for Coco+Kelley are the easiest and tastiest.

A fall trip to the Holland Farmers Market. I wish I had a bushel of honey crisps right now.

They had pretty pumpkins and gourds, too.

We were in the Ann Arbor area and very hungry, so we went to Zingerman’s Roadhouse for dinner. Our waitress checked my ID because I ordered a drink and later she gave me these Zang candy bars because she saw my birthday was coming up. So nice!

Pretty concord grapes from my sister-in-law’s yard.

Made a concord grape + balsamic vinegar shrub and made shrub soda, too.

My favorite ramen at Slurping Turtle. Plus they have fresh-squeezed oj mimosas at brunch!

That surreal day when I met Wolfgang Puck and saw him take pictures of food with his phone.

I guess brunch was top priority this fall? Smoked salmon eggs Benedict at The Meeting House.

Remember those pumpkin tahini overnight oats? Still dreamy.

Salty caramel coffee + pistachio ice cream at Blank Slate Creamery. Later I remembered it was the exact same thing I ordered last time. I guess I know what I like. I usually don’t get waffle cones, but you want as much ice cream as possible at this place.

The BEST bloody marys + chilaquiles at Imperial with friends.

Mmm…cheesecake with pomegranate-vanilla bean cranberry sauce in my new vintage pan.

It really snowed one day and that’s the last we’ve seen of it.

Making cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving in my pj’s.

I was surprised the old smoke shop in downtown Holland featured Bender from Futurama. I’m equally surprised that I remember his name.

Liege waffle mix part 2.

Fall 2015 Seasonal Snapshots // @nicoledula

Finished liege waffles with mascarpone and poached pears. They were so good, but my waffle iron is a caramelized sugar mess. I told Marc that all I want for Christmas is for someone else to clean it. Update: Carefully pour boiling water in waffle plates (one side at a time) to melt sugar and pour out. Wipe out with sponge. Marc cleaned it for me 🙂 🙂 🙂
