Apple Picking at Demarest Farms [Near NYC]

Over the weekend, I ventured to New Jersey to go apple picking with Joe and my friend, Marta

After extensive research [obviously hardcore research], I chose Demarest Farms. From New York City, the majority of apple orchards and pumpkin patches are over an hour drive away but Demarest Farms was only roughly 30 minutes from the city.  Demarest Farms is open for apple picking on weekends from 9 AM-4:30 PM.

Upon arrival at the farm, you can purchase a general admission ticket [$5], which includes a hay ride [to the apple orchards] and petting zoo access. You can purchase an apple bag for $9 and fill it up as much as possible!

Joe and I managed to fit 19 apples in our bag--not bad at the $9 price point! 

Stay tuned for a post next week with all of my apple recipe picks. 

The orchards also contain a pumpkin patch. For $9, you can bring home the largest pumpkin you can carry! 

After we picked apples, we returned to the farm and picked up cider donuts from their store. They have a cute little shop, filled to the brim with donuts, baked goods, ice cream, sandwiches, and all the fall goodies you can imagine. Of course we had to munch on some hot and fresh cider donuts [I swear they replenished their trays every five minutes]. 

I could not recommend this spot more for your apple picking needs!

Have you been apple picking this year yet?!

Fall Bucket List

In all honesty, I haven't wanted to let go of summer [it was a really good one!]. This week the crisp air is rolling in and I'm in the mood for my favorite season: fall. 

As I want to make sure to fit everything in this fall, I figured I bet write up my bucket list. Here it goes:

Visit a pumpkin patch
Pick apples
❤ Watch a scary(ish) movie
Decorate for fall
Make apple butter
Drink hot apple cider
Take photos of fall foliage 
Try a new pumpkin recipe
Make a pumpkin spice latte
Go to a corn maze
Be thankful
❤ Bake fall cookies
Decorate pumpkins
Watch the best Halloween movies (Hocus Pocus & Nightmare Before Christmas)
Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Bake a pumpkin pie

Which of these activities made your fall bucket list?!

Vegan Cinnamon Rolls [Video]

After too much time on Pinterest last week, I stumbled upon a delectable looking vegan cinnamon roll recipe. I decided to test it out for myself & share this recipe

I was amazed how simple it was and how well the cinnamon rolls turned out! I've had my share of cinnamon rolls and trust me, these ones are better than most and they are vegan. 

After checking out my video, give them a whirl. Be sure to share your results on Instagram and Twitter :)
