PUMPKIN RECIPES PERFECT FOR FALL


Four Pumpkin Recipes You need to Make this Fall
 

I recently took a poll on Instagram Stories (ps. here’s the link to my instagram if we’re not friends on there yet!) and asked you all what you wanted to see on the blog. Most of you requested RECIPES!

I have soooo many recipes I’d love to share with you but I first need to take pretty pictures, ha. But in the meantime here are four mouth watering Pumpkin recipes! I wish I could eat each of these RIGHT NOW (and I also wish the calories would NOT count, ha) I may just have to do some late night baking….

Pumpkin cream cheese muffins

These ones are UN-FREAKING-REAL! They are 1000000x better than the Starbucks version and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. If you really want to wow someone, you need to bake these.

Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodle Cookies

These ones are from a super old blog post but you guys, they are soooo good and sooo easy to bake! Just mix up the few ingredients, roll the dough in some pumpkin spice sugar and then bake and voila, delicious cookies!

Pumpkin Spice Scones

CLICK THROUGH FOR AN AMAZINGLY EASY + DELICIOUS + HEALTHY MUFFIN RECIPE!

Did you know that muffins can be lifesavers? Seriously, one of the greatest gifts you can drop off to a new mama is a dozen of freshly baked muffins! In those early days of nursing around the clock (aka hungry 24/7), I remember being so thankful for the muffins that friends had baked for me.  

I alwaaays have muffins in the fridge or freezer as they make a great breakfast or snack on the go. Luca loves them and so does London girl!

5 SUMMER SALAD IDEAS


Can you believe we only have a month left of summer! To be honest, I'm a little over this hot weather (31 weeks pregnant doesn't mix well with crazy hot weather, ha!) BUT I'm trying to enjoy what we have left of the season!

 When I'm not craving sweets (which is ALL the time BTW) I'm craving a good ol summer salad! \

Here are 5 that I want to make ASAP:

1. Moroccan Quinoa Salad

5 Summer Salads

We make this Moroccan Quinoa Salad all the time. It's very tasty and also super quick and easy  to make! 

2. BLT Chopped Salad

5 Summer Salad Ideas!

This is on my list to make this week! I'm a huge fan of chopped salads and bacon always makes everything better.

3. Grilled Peach Salad

Grilled Peach Salad w/ Honey Goat Cheese Dressing

This Grilled Peach Salad is AMAZING...especially when you get to use fresh, local peaches! And don't even get me started on the honey goat cheese dressing with this one. It's always a hit.

4. Summer Grain Bowls

Summer salads

How good does this summer grain bowl look? I need to make this ASAP.

5. Caprese Orzo Salad

Caprese + orzo = a match made in heaven! This is such an easy and delicious salad to make!

Hope you're enjoying this last month of Summer!!

CARROT GINGER TURMERIC SLOW COOKER SOUP

CARROT GINGER TURMERIC SLOW COOKER SOUP

Well we're just over a week into the new year and I haven't had any cookies. That my friends is a big deal. I've been trying to cut out sweets and eat a bit healthier this month and it's going pretty well. Anyone else with me here?

The tricky thing for me is finding healthy recipes that are easy and not soo expensive and this soup hits both of those...oh and it's also delicious! I've made this soup multiple times in the past few months and it's always a hit.

The prep takes less than 15 minutes and your slow cooker does the rest of the work. When it's done cooking, all you need to do is blend and then you're good to go!

OREO + PEPPERMINT OREO TRUFFLES

OREO + PEPPERMINT OREO TRUFFLES

A couple of weeks ago I hosted a holiday baking exchange with a few friends and I made these delicious oreo truffles! (I'm embarrassed to say that ALL of the treats we made and received are now gone...#sugaraddict)

To add some variety, I made two batches. The first batch was covered with milk chocolate and oreo crumbs and the second batch had peppermint filling inside covered with white chocolate and crushed candy cane! They were both sooo good but my preference was chocolate all the way.
