Stuffed with cinnamon, apples and pecans, this Maple Glazed Apple Pecan Bread is the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of apple season!Every Fall, I am totally enamored by upstate New York.  (For the record, Fall usually begins in late August/early September up here.  Back in the south, Fall didn’t begin until early November…if we were lucky.  But I digress.)  The leaves begin turning all shades of vibrant reds, oranges and yellows.  The evenings are crisp, and the dew sparkles in the chilly morning air.  Aside from the amazing weather (and the return of college football!), one of my favorites parts of Fall is the apples.  So many delicious apples…so little time!Continue Reading »
