My pumpkin dreams are coming true one recipe at a time. If you’re not a huge pumpkin fan, I am truly sorry. I promise I will make it up to you soon, but we have got to talk about this recipe first.

When the idea for pumpkin churros popped into my head, I could hardly wait to get into the kitchen and start making them. My mouth started watering at the thought of them and all I could think was I really hope this recipe turns out to be a success. In my head it seriously sounded too good not to.

I am beyond elated to tell you that it totally worked. My taste buds and hips rejoiced… sort of ;).

Experiment adding pumpkin to a classic churro recipe turned out to be one of the best ideas I’ve had this season. Can you tell I am totally and utterly smitten? Yes? I hope you will be too! [Read more…]

Caramel Stuffed Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

Welcome to another week! Did you have a good weekend? Mine is pretty much summarized by these cookies. Cookies are my ultimate comfort food, especially when they come with plenty of chocolate chips, caramel and the awesomeness of pumpkin. I worked hard on these, friends.

I have had my fair share of cakey pumpkin cookies, which isn’t necessarily a negative thing. While they can be just as delicious, I wanted a pumpkin cookie that tastes just like a cookie should. Complete with crispy edges, ultimate chewiness and zero disappointment.

And after perfecting THE pumpkin cookie recipe, I couldn’t help but add ooey gooey caramel to each one. I thought it couldn’t get much better, but the addition of caramel definitely stepped things up.

Once you go caramel stuffed there’s no going back. I may never make “regular” cookies again. [Read more…]

Candy Corn Peanut Butter Cups

Candy Corn, Peanuts, Chocolate. Do I need to say more? Best candy creation ever!

Today’s recipe is for everyone who can’t stop reaching into that bag full of candy corn. Oh, and peanut butter cup lovers too.

My affection with everything peanut butter and chocolate is well documented on this blog. I even have a super simple recipe for homemade peanut butter cups (that require only 2 ingredients) already on the blog. When I’m in a cinch, I totally whip up a batch of those and have my way with them. But today’s version is slightly different. I jazzed it up a bit and made some delicious additions.

I actually got the idea while eating a mix of candy corn, roasted peanuts, and chocolate chips the other day. Best fall snack… hands down! So I thought that the only thing better would be a handheld sweet. And I was totally right. All of my cravings in one little cup.

Addictive little things, these are. [Read more…]

Happy October 1st. Fall is in full swing and there’s nothing I love more than to snuggle up, sip on a warm beverage and snack on something yummy. Preferably while holding a piggy. Say what? I shared yesterday in this post that Adam and I adopted two baby guinea pigs. It really was a spur of the moment decision. Somehow we ended up at a pet store on a Friday night and before we knew it, we were holding two piggies. Once we held them, there was no turning back. Pippa and Pippin had found a new home!

I had no idea that guinea pigs are fruit and vegetable fanatics. More vegetable than fruit, really. Watching them chowing down on peppers, carrots, kale, and cucumbers has really inspired me to do the same. I am not kidding – when you watch them get so excited about their “treats” that they can’t help but run around in circles in their cage, I start reaching for carrots without even knowing it. Need to add more veggies to your diet? Get a guinea pig or two ;).

While I love vegetables, there is something else that has me skipping with joy around our house. 3 words: Pumpkin Coffee Cake. [Read more…]
