Take Five...

By now, if you've followed the apple pie saga, you might be wondering- where is she? Did she burn out, give up...face plant in her pie dish? Absolutely not! I wanted to take a bit of a break and share a delicious foodie discovery perfect for after a long day in the kitchen. And of course, it will make your mouth water just the same!

I decided to treat myself to a delicious indulgence, in the form of a bubble bath, for some calorie-free detox. The warm, spicy scent of butterscotch and nutmeg with a hit of spice make the pumpkin fragrance in this bath soap sing. Mmmm...and wouldn't you know it, there's a recipe on the bottle! Guess it will take more than a long soak to keep me out of the kitchen.
