Pumpkin Ice Cream

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Happy December everyone! Thanksgiving is over, which is a total bummer because I love everything about Thanksgiving. The food, the people, the zero need to stress and get together with family. Every year we hold a friendsgiving for the other “orphans” without a family in the city and every year it’s just a great time with too much food and good people. It seems so counterintuitive that I love Thanksgiving so much, but feeding others brings me joy and Thanksgiving is great for that! This pumpkin ice cream for example,…

Deliciously Easy Pumpkin Seeds 4 Ways

Halloween is basically the best time of the year, because it’s the most fall of all the holidays (some may say, but what about Thanksgiving??? But I feel like Halloween is the celebration of fall while Thanksgiving is a celebration of the end of fall). This weekend, for the first time in years, we decided to carve pumpkins. Which of course means plenty of pumpkin seeds. Carving pumpkins was so much fun! and when we were finished we were left with just a mound of pumpkin guts. So naturally I spent…

Drunken Spiced Rum Pumpkin Cupcakes

Happy almost Halloween! To celebrate I’ve made some BOOzy cupcakes! Drunken spiced rum pumpkin cupcakes But seriously, when I say these are drunken, I don’t mean there’s a bit of alcohol that bakes off and you can’t even taste it, I mean these are drunken. Deliciously, deliciously drunken. I made two batches and used up all the rum I intended to drink at the party I was heading too. But they’re delicious. You can for sure taste the spiced rum and the pumpkin and the Marshmallow frosting pairs with it…

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

I know I said I was done with muffins for a while, but that was before I remembered it was pumpkin season and therefore it was necessary to make some pumpkin muffins. Especially because I’ve been getting used to eating a muffin for breakfast on my way to work. These were especially delicious. The pumpkin and apple sauce create this really moist muffin and the apple chunks were so delicious, plus the texture added by the walnuts was much needed and appreciated. Also, those Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies I baked…

Happy fall everyone! Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. Back in Michigan it means cider mills and apple picking, fresh donuts, apple cider, and pumpkin. Being down in Memphis, this is the time of year I get desperately homesick. It’s still 90 degrees out and all the tress are green, but halloween is right around the corner and the kids have been in school for 2 months. It all feels wrong, which is why I started a tradition: Every year on the first day of fall I make…

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

I was asked by someone today what happens to all the cupcakes I make, since I bake so often. Over the summer, I ate a lot of them because my sister and her fiance weren’t huge on sweets. Now, however, I live in an apartment with 4 other girls and 3 of us have boyfriends – as a result, super delicious cupcakes like my Hard Apple Cider Cupcakes last less than 48 hours. So today, I made Pumpkin Cupcakes, using up the left over pumpkin from the pumpkin bars I made for…

It may not be officially fall yet, but the weather is cooling down, school has begun and berries have gone up in price which means it’s time to celebrate fall. Despite the fact that I have 70% of Frankenstein left to read and a rather large amount of other homework, I decided it was time to begin the celebration with pumpkin, delicious delicious pumpkin. Pumpkin baked goods are my absolute favorite part of fall. And these were such a hit when I made them last year, I’ve decided to revisit…
