Caramel Pumpkin Gingersnap Cheesecake

I know, I had you at caramel right? The Pioneer Woman posted a recipe for Caramel Pumpkin Gingersnap Cheesecake that looks so good that I nearly licked my monitor. The recipe comes with loads of pictures and funny commentary. Now I need to get a springform pan before my friends see this and start bugging me to make it.

Twist Collective

I am so in love with the online knitting magazines being put out by the Twist Collective. I want almost every single pattern in both the Fall and Winter editions. The Sylvi and Vivian are two of my favorite favorites from the winter edtion. And the fall edition has a free pattern for Houdini Socks.

Holiday Knitting

Knitting Daily has a pattern booklet featuring five holiday knits available for download. There are four patterns for knitted ornaments and one for a knitted gift bag. The snowflake ornament is my favorite and I think I have the perfect yarn for it in my stash (it's a Festivus miracle).

*update* There's a great finish of this pattern up on the Freebie Gallery. I so love the beads and bells used to embellish it.

Field Guide to Cookies

Bust is giving away 10 copies of a Field Guide to Cookies (the contest is only open to US residents and closes on Nov. 5th, 2008). Since it's about cookies I'm assuming it's genius. The author also has a great blog called Dessert First where you can find pictures to make you drool all over your keyboard as well as some recipes.

And since I'm talking about cookies (again), it reminded me of this cookie related video. Makes me giggle every time.
