Oatmeal to Go Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

As a homeschooling family, I only have to cram breakfast in while packing lunches and getting out the door on time once a week. We have a weekly co-op, and every Tuesday, amid the scramble, I marvel at all you moms and dads who run the gauntlet of morning activity every day. "Where are my… Continue reading Oatmeal to Go Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

Pumpkin-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fall is here. Fi-na-lly. Seriously, this has been the longest summer I can ever remember in Seattle. So hot. Yes. I'm a heat complainer. Don't worry, it's actually a fairly normal condition in the Pacific Northwest. People don't stay living round these parts for sunshine and sandy beaches. I love making pumpkin spiced deliciousness during… Continue reading Pumpkin-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

If you are familiar with dump cake, you'll see the genius of this recipe immediately. My mom used to make dump cake when I was a kid. I'll have to post that "recipe" sometime soon. It's essentially canned fruit, topped with dry cake mix and smothered with butter. Not really a cake in the traditional… Continue reading Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Fabulously Freaky Halloween Fodder

Fabulously Freaky Halloween Fodder I love throwing Halloween parties. Mostly because I get to make delicious food and give it disgusting names. Here's a round-up of all the deliciousness I made this year and the nastiness I called it. Most of these items are easy to make (and can be done ahead of time) so… Continue reading Fabulously Freaky Halloween Fodder

Foggy Morning Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

Fall is here! This morning I was treated to my favorite weather on earth. Fog. Wonderful, misty, curl up with a book in front of a fire fog. Chilly damp mystery novel fog. I love it. I think it's deep in my English blood to adore a nice foggy morning. Or so my Nanny tells… Continue reading Foggy Morning Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

The technically correct term for this recipe is "Pumpkin Flan". I'm pretty sure you need a crust to call something a pie. But I think the word flan is a little gross sounding, and I adore everything about pumpkin pie except the crust, so I'm doing this recipe on my own terms. Crustless Pumpkin Pie… Continue reading Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Spice Muffin Tops

These are one of my favorite "cookies" to make. First of all, they are warm tasting and soft. The spices make you feel all homey and there's no hard crunch to contend with to break that mood. Secondly, they are practically guilt free since they're made with applesauce and pumpkin. Really, they're like eating a… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Muffin Tops

Oh how I love love love these cupcakes. The spices, the pumpkin, the cream cheese frosting. It all combines for an absolutely perfect taste explosion. All individually packaged up in a convenient wrapper. Does anyone else think unwrapped cupcake holders look like tutus? No? Just me? Anyway. These are my favorite fall cupcakes - and… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes & Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Double Glazed Pumpkin Scones

At MOPS on Thursday, my friend Bethany brought awesome pumpkin scones. They got me in the mood to bake some myself. Now, my normal scones are amazing and I love the recipe. I've just never been super comfortable trying to alter it to a pumpkin scone recipe because there are already so many wet ingredients… Continue reading Double Glazed Pumpkin Scones
