banana cupcakes with maple brown butter frosting...

When I stepped out for lunch today in a skirt, I almost froze! {gross over-exaggeration of course, since it is around 75 degrees in Milwaukee right now}It got me pretty excited for sweater and boot weather though... and of course apples, maple and the smell of cinnamon and pumpkin filling my apartment {I must admit, I am a candle hoarder... but if we associate memory with smell, why not have a scented candle for every occasion?!}

To get you as excited for fall as I am, here is a recipe for banana cupcakes with maple brown butter frosting from nomnomnstuff...
