Pumpkin Brownies

Pumpkin Brownies (2 of 6)

So yesterday I made something for the blog and I called to tell Adam what I had made. He said, "Be sure you save me some, I love those!" I then said, "What? I've not made them before." He said, " Yes you have, they are on your blog." Well sure enough I had made them before, not that exact recipe but one very close. So, I went back to the kitchen at 11:30 last night and made these Pumpkin … Read More

Copycat Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins (3 of 5)

It's pumpkin time! I love pumpkin in anything, especially in breads or muffins. I was searching for a new muffin recipe and came across this one that is supposed to taste even better than the ones served at Starbucks. In full disclosure, I have never had one of the Starbucks ones, but these homemade ones were so moist and Adam said they tasted like fall to him. I love the texture and flavor … Read More

We had a dinner meeting last week and everyone was supposed to bring an appetizer. I found these buffalo chicken tortilla roll-ups and knew I had to make them.

They had a nice hint of spice without … Read More

I'm so excited that the temperatures are starting to get a bit cooler and you can start to feel that crispness in the air that means it's turning into fall.

As the weather does turn colder I find myself gravitating toward comforting, hearty recipes and this … Read More

I knew once it hit apple season this year that I had to … Read More

I just couldn't help myself making some more apple recipes. I've decided to declare this apple week here on the blog! These apple cider donuts were so good! Very light and had a great spice flavor to them. The apple flavor isn't over powering and pairs perfectly with the cinnamon sugar topping. Love that these are a great breakfast or dessert. And they were even better served slightly … Read More
