It's fall, y'all.

Around this time of year, everyone gets giddy with anticipation of fall. The ladies look forward to their pumpkin spice beverages, and the men have one thing on their mind - football. It seems that you're pretty hard pressed to find someone that doesn't like fall. 

When you think fall, what do you think of? I think of the crisp air, the smell of pumpkin and cinnamon apples, and roar of football on the TV while the wind blows through our open windows. You know what they say: "Smells ring bells", and it's true! Smells have the power to meet up with our most fond memories and signal our emotions. 

What better way to usher in fall than filling your home with the scents of the season? I use 
Glade® scents around my home because they always leave a fresh aroma that I can depend on to bring back my fondest memories of Fall.

In the kitchen I always use Glade®  wax melts in my wax warmer. Glade® Limited Edition Fall Collection's new Hit the Road™ fragrance feels like a crisp breeze coming through the open windows without having to open a single one. It's the perfect blue fall sky or a drive down a windy road with the crisp fall leaves rolling along with you. It's a scent that doesn't scream "fall!" but leaves you giddy with the anticipation of the best season of all.

Another favorite scent is Pumpkin Pit Stop™. With just the right notes of pumpkin and spice, 
Pumpkin Pit Stop™ helps bring out the best scents of the season in a delightfully light way. 

With the scent stage set, I'm in the mood for fall, and all of the fond memories it brings. As the 
season progresses, I find myself in the kitchen more and more. The Glade® Limited Edition Fall Collection scents inspire me to flex my cooking and baking muscles and all of the spice and festive flavors of the season have my mouth watering for my favorite early fall recipe:

Double Apple Crumble

2 cups oats (I used old fashioned, but quick oats will work too!
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 cup soft butter or margarine
2 cans of apple pie filling
sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon mixture

Combine oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and butter (not melted, but softened) till crumbly.

Press about a third of the mixture in the bottom of a lightly greased 9×13″ pan or similar. I like using this oval dish.

Spread apples over crust and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture to your liking. Remember - the apple pie filling is already sweetened.

Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture evenly over the apples. 

Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or till apples are tender and crumble is slightly browned. 

Best served warm with vanilla ice cream of your choosing!
