    I lived in Philly for a little bit, and it’s a city that I love to visit nowadays. That’s awesome that you had the opportunity to see the Pope while he was in town! And, I’m excited for your recipes, everything looks delicious!! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      You did? Isn’t it an interesting city? It has its own unique culture. The muffins were really good! I’m actually going to make more later today, trying to tweak the recipes a little to make them healthier.

      • Kaila says:

        Yeah, right after I graduated from college, but before my blog existed! And, that sounds like a lovely plan to me. You’ll have even more to enjoy this weekend! πŸ˜€

  2. Oooh it is my birthday too this month, which day are you? How exciting having some piccies of the man himself πŸ™‚ What are you doing to celebrate apart from partying with us of course πŸ˜€ xxx

    October is a lovely month and it always comes around so quickly! I hope you celebrate all month long πŸ™‚ x

  4. Happy early birthday. Your treats look great. Cooking is the easy part, writing up the post is the hard part for me. Thanks for hosting as always and to the wonderful co-hosts Julie @ Hostess At Heart and Liz @ Spades, spatulas, & spoons. Welcome Liz. Happy FF! :))

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Quinn! I have a hard time writing recipes sometimes. I like to be precise and crystal clear but I myself almost always tweak recipes as I go, so I need to make sure I document what I do. Have a great weekend and Happy FF!

      • That was my biggest problem when I started food blogging. I am a spontaneous cook and do most by feel and taste. I keep a notepad in the kitchen at all times.

        • Angie says:

          Notepad! Of course! I should do the same since I’m just like you. A pinch of this, a pinch of that, and a week later I wouldn’t remember exactly what I added! πŸ™‚

  5. You got to see the Pope, yay!! Nice features this week and I can’t wait for you to post your new muffin recipes. And a huge happy birthday to you πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      And I’ve been trying to be a good citizen since I saw the Pope. I’ve been trying to be super nice to people at work, haha… Thanks for the birthday wish. Muffin recipes will come soon. Just kick me you know where if I don’t move fast enough πŸ˜€

    Advanced a Happy Birthday dear Angie☺️!! Muffins look too yummy .. Loved it..
    So we share same birthday months..?. Tomorrow it’s my birthday and Wedding Anniversary ( both on same date)?!! Happy FF

  7. I am excited about October. Love the smell of fall and pumpkin all around. Double set of festivities set for me…Indian as well as American πŸ™‚

  8. I love this month, all of this time of year, and if it’s your birthday month too, then even better ?? great to see Julie’s potatoes in the pics, there’s some good pimping going on there ? Happy Fiesta Friday honey xx

    • Angie says:

      Sounds like Fall is everyone’s favorite season. As long as the storms stay away, right?! It’s going to be a really wet weekend over here. But it’s still a weekend, so I’ll take it πŸ™‚ Julie’s potatoes look pretty awesome!

  9. Tracy says:

    What a great birthday month to have, I LOVE October!! And I’m so envious that you got to see the Pope AND his stinkin’ adorable popemobile! Philly is such a wonderful city! πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      At one point, we saw that popemobile driven thru emergency route, guarded as if the Pope himself was there! It was the funniest thing! People were cheering and I thought I was going to see the man himself, but no…it was just his cute popemobile, haha… Didn’t stop me from taking pictures, though πŸ˜€

    Happy Birthday for this month, so many great folks were born in October (including my husband). Hmmmm, did I just say that? :)). So glad you were able to see His Holiness. It was the day we arrived back in Philly, and the Pilot told us we would see his plane on the tarmac, but I couldn’t see it when we arrived. Philly is a great city, so close too. We’re planning to spend the day there tomorrow, but not sure if our plans will materialize as a silly named hurricane is on its way :). We were also planning to meet up with Johanne from French Gardener for some drinky-poos and munchies, but might have to put that on hold too. Johanne and I had been planning to meet up all summer long at a garden, but we’ve both been traveling quite a bit. Lovely muffins Angie, I too made some this week, coconut and carrot, and they were so yummy! Happy Happy Lovely Angie πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Tell the husband Happy Birthmonth! Secret’s out, haha! Philly is one of those big cities with a small-town feel. People are really friendly and will greet you as if you’re an old friend. They’re also a little loud πŸ˜€ But it’s all good! It’s going to be a soaker this weekend, bummer. Carrot coconut muffins sound kinda amazing!

  11. Just to be a part of the celebration and the Pope’s visit is special! The muffins/cupcakes? look good – I see some chocolate and pumpkin. Happy FF πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      You’re so good! Yup, some chocolate chips, Nutella, pumpkin. All so yum! I’m going to see if I can tweak the recipes and make them healthier. ‘Coz my family can inhale a dozen muffins in mere minutes! That’s too much sugar and butter in one day! πŸ™‚

  12. Arl's World says:

    Hi Angie! My sister and niece both have Birthdays this month. It is a lovely month for a Birthday. πŸ™‚ The muffins looks very delicious …it is about 10:15 am here and I wish I had them for my mid-morning snack right now. Yummy!! Happy FF! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      All the good people, yay!! πŸ™‚ The muffins were excellent. I’m hoping to make them again this weekend, making them skinnier maybe. Less sugar and butter so I can eat more! πŸ˜€

  13. Happy Birthday Angie! I certainly get the not concentrating on getting older, it’s startling to look in the mirror sometimes. Thank you so much for inviting me to co-host, I’m looking forward to reading all the posts.

    And, I’m requesting the apple/carrot/pecan cake for my celebration, looks yummy!

    • Angie says:

      Happy Birthday to you, too! I try not to look in the mirror too many times, haha… And thank YOU for co-hosting! It’s such a big job visiting all the posts, and THEN selecting features. It’s the hardest part for me. That apple carrot pecan cake is so special!

  14. I cannot believe it’s October already! My hubby’s birthday and our anniversary are both this month too πŸ™‚ October is my favorite, it’s the start to all the holidays! So awesome you got to see the Pope! Have a fabulous weekend and Happy FF πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      It’s going to be a fun month for you too, then, Sarah! So many things to celebrate! I feel lucky to have been able to see the pope in person. It was so wonderful! Have a great weekend and FF! XOXO

  15. Jenny says:

    Happy Birthday month, Angie–my birthday is later in this month too! It’s a great time of year!

  16. apsara says:

    October is great month for me too, Angie. Just because we get a bit of respite in fall break, and some festivals including Halloween. On the downside, we need to get prepared for winter, but at least the fall colors will keep us happy for some time! πŸ™‚ It must have been very exciting for you to see the Pope in person!

    • Angie says:

      It really was exciting! And everybody was so joyful! I’m hoping it’ll stay that way for a long time :-). I agree with you there’s so much to do in the Fall in preparation for the winter. I was just saying the same thing to my husband last night!

  17. Woo happy birthday month, Angie! Are you gonna share what day it is? πŸ˜‰ October should be a good month for me, start my new job on Monday woo! It’s also my little sister’s and one of my nephew’s birthdays this month!

  18. That’s great that you managed to go in to see the pope in the end, since you’d been unsure, and glad you had a good day out too. I haven’t been to Philly in years but remember it has some nice things to see. Happy birthday month! October is certainly a great month food-wise in my mind, I’m loving getting into colder-weather food. The colder weather itself (and the rain) the last couple days here has been less good. But I guess I should get used to it…

    • Angie says:

      Thanks for the birthday month wish. The real birthday is towards the end of the month. But I’m trying to milk it for as long as I can, haha… The rain makes these days less ideal but it could be worse I guess. ‘Coz when it gets to be in the single digits, we’d be wishing for this weather πŸ™‚ I’m trying to make the best of it, listening to a lot of music.

  19. Sarah James @ Tales From The Kitchen Shed says:

    Happy Birthday Angie & hope you have a lovely day. Looks like you had a great day out in Philly & made special too by getting to see the Pope. Thanks to Julie & Liz for co hosting πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Thank you so much! I thought myself lucky to be able to see the Pope. I love the way he smiles! I’m also lucky to have Julie and Liz as my co-hosts. You can co-host, too, if you want. Just let me know.

  20. Suchitra says:

    It is hard to believe it is October already! The temperature has suddenly fallen, it has been raining consistently! On the bright side it is Halloween and pumpkin month! It is also my husband’s birthday month. In fact quite a few of my family members are celebrating their birthday this month. Happy birthday to you in advance Angie!

    • Angie says:

      Wow, so many GREAT people born in October!! Haha, just joking, I’m not great! But it is a great month to start indulging in favorite things like pumpkin spice, apples, and of course Halloween treats. All those candies! πŸ˜€

  24. Margherita says:

    Can you believe that I have realized just now that my bread was among the most popolar recipe of the previous week??? I’m very sorry, this is not me… but the little one is drying all my energy!!!

    • Angie says:

      Welcome to motherhood! You’ll get used to it, LOL! And by the time you get used to it, #2 might come along, haha… Sorry didn’t mean to sound unsympathetic. I do know the feeling, though. That was the reason why I stayed home for nearly 8 years while my kids were small. I don’t know how any woman can work full-time and raise a family! Hats off to them! They’re my heroes!! XOXO

Talk to me, people!
