happy friday, gang! well, we made it. not only through another week, but the new website has arrived. i will have a tutorial next week on how to navigate the site. in the meantime, take a look around and kick the tires. it’s beautiful, functional, and easy to navigate. i’m more than thrilled that Style at a Certain Age finally has a customized look and feel. and i wanted a space where my readers would feel at home. after all, you’re my guests! but i digress ‘cuz it’s Friday, and our favorite German Shepherd is on deck to usher in the weekend. we’re dishing up fall favorites today. stuffed acorn squash and apple cider cocktail. both are perfect for serving on these cool days that mother nature is delivering. this morning, i woke up to 48 degrees Fahrenheit – brrrrrr. well, almost… although i was happy to slip into my robe and sherpa slippers.
today’s recipes are soooooo good! as a young girl growing up, one of the few vegetables i liked was squash. so it’s a no-brainer to look for delicious and healthy recipes that include this nutritious veggie. acorn squash is high in carbs but loaded with nutrients providing a quality source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber essential for our digestive system. acorn squash is filled with antioxidants that protect us from cellular damage. plus, it’s delicious!
if you like bourbon or don’t, i think you will love today’s apple cider cocktail. it’s the perfect cocktail to serve to friends and family right through the holidays’. i tweaked the recipe and swapped the apple cider with sparkling apple cider.
all the fall colors are making an appearance in my home. who doesn’t love this time of year?! cork placemats (old, similar hereand here) are a breeze to clean and a favorite of mine. this cork placemat for Christmas or this one for Halloween put the spotlight on the holidays. white dinner plates and bee glassware keep the table setting simple and sleek.
1–2 teaspoons maple syrup or 1/2 ounce simple syrup
dash ground cinnamon
dash ground ginger
sparkling water for topping
Rim glasses in cinnamon sugar.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker except the sparkling water. Add ice and shake to combine. Strain into a glass.
Top with sparkling water. Serve with a cinnamon stick, rosemary sprig, or both.
I substituted the apple cider and sparkling water with sparkling apple cider.
the pumpkins and mums have arrived! my front porch is slowly transitioning from summer to fall. but how cute is this casual ootd? a pop of pink is just the ticket for a beautiful fall day. this cashmere sweater from Talbots is absolutely adorable and is the perfect match for a pair of relaxed jeans. it was a chilly day, so i layered the sweater over a gingham blouse (old, similar hereand here) to keep warm. tasseled loafers are just the ticket to complete this fall look.
New site looks so fresh. Love it!
Now I’m off to see if that adorable brilliant sweater is still available…
Happy weekend, hugs to Oscar and thank you for updating the website.

The new website looks beautiful, Beth! I pinned your stuffed squash recipe. Can’t wait to try it. Happy weekend to you and Oscar.
Love the updated page! Hope to grab the sweater. Please tell me about the bunnies on your porch?????
Congrats on the new website. I love how you are always striving to give your readers a better product. I have been following you since you were partnering with Christopher & Banks, back a few years ago.
Could you please put reader view back on your blog, for Apple devices. Your blog does not fit on my device screen otherwise. Also, I don’t mind the ads, but they do cause the webpage to reload quite a bit, and it makes it difficult to read your articles, or even enjoy the pictures. Reader view would be a great addition to your blog. Thanks for all you do. I primarily go to your site for clothing ideas. I enjoy your posts about how to build a “classic” wardrobe.
Best of luck with the new blog. Wishing you every success in your business!
How do stop your cashmere sweater from pilling. What is the best pilling tool to use? It is a beautiful colour!
love the content but i’m getting a lot of advertising jammed in between photo’s and your comments.
making the squash for supper!
