Pumpkin seems to become a trending topic during the fall and winter months, but after you make these easy pumpkin biscuits (with maple butter no less!) you might start incorporating pumpkin year round. They come together in no time and have the perfect hint of pumpkin in each and every bite. And can we talk about that maple butter…? The sweetness takes these pumpkin biscuits to another level and I won’t fault you for trying to find other things to spread it on. It’s that good. [Read more…]
This fall DIY floral pumpkin arrangement is easy to make and can be created in less than an hour with only a few supplies!
I love a good DIY project that has multiple functions. And by multiple functions, I mean one that can seamlessly transition between holidays. This DIY floral pumpkin does just that! It can happily fit into early themed fall decor in September, follow on through with Halloween in October, or even make it onto the table for Thanksgiving in November.
Whichever holiday or season you plan to use it for, this beauty is really easy to make and can be created in less than an hour!
This pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a delicious alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving dessert and it’s easy to make too!
Pumpkin…the mascot of October and the pie of choice for November. But, I have a confession to make. I hate pumpkin pie. Loathe. Maybe that’s a better word. I’ve tried to choke down a bite every single Thanksgiving and regardless, my taste buds reject it every time. I don’t get it. I like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin spice lattes, and anything else that the stores stock on the shelves during the month of October…but pumpkin pie? Noooope. Can’t. Do. It.
I know I’m in a segregated group of weirdo’s, but alas, here I am. Pumpkin pie-less. Until today!
With a few simple adjustments, this pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a solid replacement for the Thanksgiving staple. (And one I’d gladly eat instead!)
Some people just don’t like cake. I don’t understand you people, but nevertheless, you exist. And because of that, I’m creating an anti-cake cake to help you guys out. (It’s still kind of a cake. Sue me). This pumpkin waffle cake is really easy to make and put together, has a wow factor, and it’s made with waffles! What’s not to love?! (Does that mean we can consider this a breakfast recipe?)
I’ve always been a Disney fan, but throw Halloween into the mix and I’m a HUGE fan. The last few years I’ve turned attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party, at either Disneyland or Disney World, into a new tradition. I love all things Halloween already, but Disney Halloweens do not disappoint! This year, I wasn’t able to go so I wanted to incorporate my own Disney touches into my home Halloween decor. This DIY Halloween poison apple pumpkin is a nod to all of the Disney villains that deserve a little recognition this time of year, and when celebrating the bad is actually very, very good!

There’s nothing that I love more than winding down at the end of the night with my favorite warm coffee in hand and a sweet little snack to go with it. (Not sure if that’s just a sign of me getting old or if I’m just embracing the colder weather and getting cozy over here, but I’m going with the latter). And I know I’m not alone! My family and friends are the same way. So, this year, I’m going to be prepped and ready for all of those upcoming holiday house guests with my barista skills! Ha, just kidding. I’m stocking my fridge with the International Delight® One Touch Latte’™! The can makes it so easy to whip up a barista style latte for your guests without having any fancy equipment or any coffee house knowledge, which I love! And who doesn’t love pumpkin everything in the fall and cooler weather months? I’m sharing a recipe for these white chocolate pumpkin cookies that are a cinch to make, look much fancier than they actually are, pair perfectly with your lattes, and did I mention that they are delicious?!
Guys, I’m trying not to get too ahead of myself here, but I don’t think I can wait to bombard you with all things Halloween any longer. Multiple people, and I do mean multiple, have made comments about me getting a little too excited too early, but I say, screw it. As soon as September 1st hits my calendar, I’m ready for ghosts, goblins, caramel apples, and skeletons galore. And, technically, I did wait until the middle of the month to jump into the swing of things, so I think I’ve been patient enough. 😉
Either way, Halloween is hitting the blog and I’m thrilled. It’s my very, very favorite holiday and one that I celebrate to the fullest. But, to ease you guys in, I’m starting with a fall themed project first. These DIY football pumpkins can be used throughout September and well past Halloween too! They couldn’t be any easier to make and you only need a few cheap items to throw them together.

I don’t know about you guys, but this time of year is when my schedule seems to get super packed. The universe just seems to sense the minute Halloween is over and the “holidays” come rolling in full steam ahead. Lots of family, friend, and work gatherings that are jam packed into a very busy two months.
It also seems like the same two months when I do more baking than any other time of the year! Not gonna lie…baking up festive holiday treats does get me into the holiday spirit, but it can also take A LOT of time to do, and depending on your gift list, can be a daunting task.
I know that making things “from scratch” is the preferred way to go, but guess what? It’s 2015 and most of us have lives to live besides slaving away in the kitchen. I am a huge believer in the semi-homemade method of baking and cooking and if I can make something easier on myself, I’m all for it. Especially if that way saves time and doesn’t sacrifice on taste!
Today’s recipe for semi-homemade mini pumpkin cream cheese bread, is definitely going to accomplish both of those things!
