My mom is a pretty picky eater, but one thing that she absolutely loves is nuts! It is always a safe bet to give her nuts as a gift. I am honestly not a huge fan, but when she came to visit us this most recent time, I knew I should make her something special. I decided to make her some Candied Pecans because I know how much she loves them, and I also knew they would be great in my pantry until the next time she came to visit. This recipe is sweet, salty and flavorful and it is perfect for enjoying as a snack, adding on top of sweet potatoes or salads or even giving to your friends as a gift around the holidays.
Gatherings and get together are so great so so many reasons, but one of the things I love most about them is DIPS! So many fall foods incorporate pumpkin, and so many fall events call for parties. This Pumpkin Dip is perfect for so many occasions this time of year! It is sweet, and creamy and goes great with graham crackers, teddy grahams or fruit. You should try this recipe out ASAP! You will love it!
Let’s mix it up a little bit this fall and have our pumpkin a different way. We all love the classics: pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bars, pumpkin bread, etc., BUT have you had pumpkin ice cream?! This incredibly easy to make homemade No-Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream takes just a few minutes to make, and you do not need an ice cream maker! I love to top mine with some caramel sauce, brown sugar, crushed pecans or graham cracker crumbs. This would be a great original Thanksgiving dessert or just a rough Monday treat!
Alright, y’all! I am officially ready for fall! All of our exciting summer plans have come and gone, and I am ready for some cooler weather (surprisingly, Missouri summers are pretty brutal!). Today, I thought that maybe if I made a fall themed dessert, I could trick myself into thinking that fall was already here. I decided to make this Pumpkin Crumb Cake with Glaze, and let me just tell you – it is amazing! Save this recipe, because it just might be your new favorite pumpkin dessert.
It may not quite be fall yet, but it’s time to start getting ready! Honestly, this Creamy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie could be enjoyed any time of year, but with the weather starting to cool down now is as good a time as any! Making this smoothie takes only a couple minutes, and it is a healthy way to get your pumpkin spice fix!
