Stop & smell the coffee and a recipe for fruit humble pie squares

Yes I do agree coffee is a major motivation to wake up every morning. With the nice weather I enjoy my first early morning cup relaxing in the peacefulness on my screened back porch.

Is it me, but it seems the first cup always tastes the best?

Today I'm also sharing a recipe for Market Fruit Crumble Humble Pie Squares.  Everyone loved them last weekend, so I thought I'd share my recipe!
