Fall is in the air, my friend. October is here! Big things going on this month, including Halloween and my 27th birthday. Yeesh! My mom and sisters are coming down here to help me celebrate so that will be a blast and a half.
It hasn’t really cooled off yet where I’m at in Utah, but I can see it in the change of color in the leaves everywhere. It’s so pretty here right now! I love fall so much. And I especially love finding foods that are perfect for fall. These Pumpkin Waffles with Cinnamon Syrup are heavenly for this time of year. The flavors together are a winning combo. It tastes like fall would taste if I could take a big bite out of the air. That sounds weird. But you get what I’m saying! I love love love these waffles with this syrup!
(The syrup recipe comes from the fabulous Jamie from Jamie Cooks It Up! I’ve tried to make my own cinnamon syrup recipe, but I can’t get over hers. It’s SO good!)
