New England Pumpkin Cake

It’s officially October which means it’s officially “All Things Pumpkin” season. Not that I haven’t been embracing pumpkin everything since Labor Day weekend ended…. errr, or a couple of weeks before that. But that is besides the point! September may be all about getting excited for the pumpkin fun, but October means business.

Last year I shared 5 pumpkin inspired recipes in 5 weeks. I had so much fun doing it that I decided to repeat the fun this year, despite the husband protesting. Over the next 5 weeks I plan to share a pumpkin inspired treat with you once a week. From cakes, to cookies & breakfast items, there will be a little bit of everything.

Week #1 starts with one of my new favorites, New England Pumpkin Cake.

I love how simple this recipe is, but that it doesn’t lack the flavor and quality of something made from scratch. I have tried A LOT of pumpkin breads and cakes, most of which use cake mix bases, but this one by far surpasses all of them. It is so good and so easy.

Green Tea Scones, Celebrating Hot Tea Month

I have talked about my love for caffeinated beverages frequently on this space. They get me through my very early mornings, late nights, and days that end in the letter y. True story. Where you may think that my love for warm drinks ends with coffee, you couldn’t be any further from the truth. I happen to be a huge fan of hot tea. There is just something so cozy and inviting about a cup of tea. Anytime I go to fix myself a cup of tea I almost always find Russ requesting one too. Hot tea is just one of those things that brings people together.

January also happens to be Hot Tea Month! Today we are going to celebrate with Bigelow and make a tea inspired recipe!

Baby PBJ, Make Meal Time Fun Again

I’ve said it before and I will likely say it again, in our house PBJ is always on standby. Especially when it comes to our oh so sweet and oh so pick Emily Elizabeth. It’s funny to me that some how we ended up with one kid who eats everything and another who lives on peanut butter and jelly. But even the pickiest of eaters like a bit of variety and often end up bored eating the same sandwich over and over again. Today I want to share how we have made meal time fun again with a Baby PBJ Bagel-wich.

Make meal time fun again with this unexpected twist on a classic PBJ!
