Creepy Crawly Spider Cookies

 

I’m getting excited for my Monster Mash Bash Halloween party happening on October 20! So much so, that I’m beginning to make ghoulish treats for all of my friends to enjoy. Nothing puts a smile on your face than some treats with a little spooky personality to them.

The only issue I run into is that working 40 hours a week can make you feel less than enthusiastic about whipping up something homemade.  That’s why I want to share this easy and quick and frightfully festive spider cookie recipe with you! It’s perfect to put together on a weeknight or when you’re running out of time to make something spooktacular to treat and delight your pals.

Simple Pumpkin Blended Coffee

blended pkin coffee

I am not a fan of the typical store bought pumpkin spice coffee – but I have created a pumpkin blended coffee that I do enjoy! At times, the “pumpkin spice” essence in coffee leaves a bit of a chemical after taste (to me at least) so I blend my coffee with real pumpkin, brown sugar and cinnamon for a sweet, creamy pumpkin treat.

I am terrible at providing accurate measurements for this recipe (it was an “eyeballing it’ creation), so please use it as an inspiration for creating your own unique blended pumpkin coffee and adjust to your liking! Read more below to see how I make mine:

Pumpkin Bread Recipe (Vegan!)

pumpkin bread recipe

I have made this recipe multiple times since my grandma shared this recipe with me around Thanksgiving last year. It is my favorite baked pumpkin treat (PS – it is also VEGAN!)! It’s so easy to make PLUS it makes two loaves which makes it perfect to bring to family gatherings in the fall or to the office (I’ve brought it to both!). I’ll also let you in on a secret – it makes a MEAN french toast! I made some last fall for my husband with some chopped pecans on top and he approved – which he is quite the food critic, so when he approves, I’m happy!

Check out the recipe below: Continue reading “Pumpkin Bread Recipe (Vegan!)”

Boo-Berry Donuts Recipe

Fresh blueberries can still be found in the grocery store (however I use frozen blueberries in this recipe most of the time since I always have them on hand for smoothies!) which makes this a perfect treat for September! If you’re not a pumpkin person, I recommend you whip up a batch of these homemade donuts which really taste great for any season! This is one of my favorite homemade baked donut recipes since it’s sweet, tart, with a hint of fall flavor because I add in some cinnamon for an extra kick.

Bloody Good Cherry Pie Recipe

Bloody Good Cherry Pie Recipe

My husband ONLY accepts birthday pie and never cake. His all time favorite pie is cherry and so I made a bloody good cherry pie for his birthday. Here’s a little confession, this is the first pie I have made entirely from scratch – including the crust (in the past, I’ve only used pre-made store bough crust for pies).

Here’s what you’ll need to make this scrumptious treat:

Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts

It’s August and the cool mornings and nights mean that it is time to bake with PUMPKIN!

I love making pumpkin baked goods, and this year I have taken great joy in baking my own donuts. Baked donuts at home are healthier than fried donuts, and just as delicious. I recommend you have a donut mold pan to bake with, which are fairly inexpensive. I picked up a two pack of Wilton donut pans on Amazon for $13.50 earlier this season.  (Always grease your pan well when baking to make it easier to pop them out. I just give mine a good spray with canola oil)
