9 Easy Favorite Pumpkin Recipes

I have to admit I’m already in the mood for the holidays.  It might have something to do with the fact that I’ve been binge watching Hallmark channel’s countdown to Christmas movie marathon that started last weekend.  I’m already planning my list of what cookies I want to make this season. I don’t want to jump into cookie season just yet because pumpkin goodies deserve to be the highlight for a little while first.  After all, we haven’t even made it to Thanksgiving yet.  If you’re looking for some ideas for what to make then I’ve got you’ve covered.  I’m sharing 9 …

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Fall is absolutely my favorite time of the year.  I know I’ve said it a bazillion times.  There is something about the crisp air and falling leaves that makes me happy. I thought I’d share with you some ways that I’m getting ready for the season. Pumpkin Spice Latte.  I think this is one of things that you either love or hate.  I happen to love it.  I’m one of those girls who will take a picture of her first Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte and post it on social media.  Cliche, I know, but did it really happen if I …

Pumpkin Cheesecake

There was a day when I didn’t care about cracks on top of a cheesecake. My husband has made this pumpkin cheesecake a few times (before my blogging days) and we’re pretty confident that it cracked then too and yet we continued to make it again and again.  Why?  It’s out of this world delicious.  We loved it.  Our families loved it.  We’ve never made any other kind of pumpkin cheesecake because there is no need to try any other when you’ve found one that tastes as good as this one.  Plus, it’s easy to make. I debated on whether …

Whole Wheat Mini Pumpkin Muffins

The age old question this time of the year, are you a pumpkin or apple food person? Pumpkin pie, apple cake, pumpkin cookies, apple pie… there are so many delicious goodies and so little time.  I love them all.  I will say that I’ve never found an apple muffin that rocked my world, but I do love pumpkin muffins.  I’ve made a variety of pumpkin muffins over the years but this is the first time I’ve made whole wheat pumpkin muffins.  I’ve never made whole wheat muffins of any flavor actually, so I thought I’d try something different. Whole wheat …

Iced Pumpkin Coffee Cake

And just like that, it’s already November. On November 1st the mall was already decorated for Christmas and some people have already posted pictures on social media that their house is decorated for Christmas.  I have to admit that that totally stresses me out.  It makes me feel like I’m behind on my holiday shopping and decorating.  Does anyone else feel that way?  I’m determined to enjoy these last days of Fall and ignore those early birds (or try to). If you only make one pumpkin goodie this Fall then it must be this coffee cake (excluding pumpkin pie because of …
