September is Bourbon Heritage Month, which is very, very exciting... for all of you NOT pregnant. However, I AM pregnant and I am NOT excited about my beloved bourbon being forbidden for the next several months.
Not to be deterred, I thought I would offer up some delicious ways to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month that don't involve actually drinking bourbon.
Sure, this recipe comes from Hummingbird High, a lovely blogger who is actually from Portland, Oregon. However, I feel she can be trusted because this cake looks delicious. I also feel that someone should make this cake and deliver it to my house ASAP.
The first day of fall is September 23rd. That means fall is officially close enough for all of us (or me) to start gorging ourselves on all things pumpkin, including this delicious cheesecake by Kitchenette.
These cookies from Heather Christo have bourbon and bacon and a cup of butter. What more do you people need to know?
If I can't get tipsy, at least my cake should be able to! Plus, chocolate and bourbon is a winning combination every time. Not to mention, Better Homes & Gardens knows their stuff when it comes to baking.
You know what? Sometimes you need to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month first thing in the morning. Luckily, The Noshery has you covered with this delicious mix up of bourbon pecan pie and donuts!
Happy celebrating! Don't forget to make two of each and send one to me!
