Crock Pot Pumpkin Dump Cake

Found this recipe on Pinterest, plus it looked quick and easy to put together and cook in the Crock Pot. This was the first time I’d ever made a dump cake, and since I love pumpkin, it seemed like a perfect recipe to try out. I had no idea what to expect, but the flavour was good…though it could’ve used a bit more pumpkin spice for my liking. What I didn’t expect is how soft and moist it was. I didn’t mind it though, since it didn’t take away from the flavour. We added a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was a perfect combo. Not sure I’ll make this particular recipe again, but will definitely try another Crock Pot dump cake recipe in the future.

Kellogg’s Pumpkin Spice Mini-Wheats

We bought these back in the fall of last year, when we saw them in the store. I love most things pumpkin spice, so it was a no-brainer to try them out!! And they didn’t disappoint!! Now, being that it’s ‘frosted’ it was on the sweet side, but it definitely had the pumpkin spice flavour I love. If you’re into pumpkin spice, like I am, I bet you’ll enjoy this cereal too!!

Pumpkin Spice Pull-Apart Bread

Hope all of you that celebrated, had a wonderful Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ™‚

As for me, a friend of mine posted a link for this recipe on Facebook, and I finally got around to making it. I had sugar pumpkins that I roasted and used for this recipe, but you can easily use canned pumpkin too!! The recipe itself was super easy and pretty quick to make. The flavour was good too. The pumpkin spice flavour isn’t in your face either…it’s just enough ๐Ÿ™‚ Will definitely make this again sometime.

Purdy’s Fall Chocolates…Mmm…Pumpkin!!

Last week, while passing by our local Purdy’s store, I saw that they had their fall chocolates out ๐Ÿ˜€ Who am I to pass up Pumpkin anything, so we grabbed a Pumpkin Truffle, Pumpkin Caramel and a Lemon Cream just to change things up a little ๐Ÿ˜‰ They were all yummy too!! The Pumpkin ones had a great pumpkin spice taste to them and the Lemon had tiny pieces of rind that made it tangy…omnomnom!! Get your own chocolates while they’re in season…especially if you’re a Pumpkin Spice flavour lover like myself!!

Got The Holiday Baking Bug!!

On Monday I had the urge, to finally make some Christmas Spritz cookies. I’ve never made them before, so I thought I’d do aย test run. They turned out pretty good!! They’re buttery andย melt in your mouth…very omnomnom-worthy ๐Ÿ™‚ย I will have to bake them a few minutes less next time though, as 7 minutes seems too long for these particular cookies. I’ll also have to double up the flavouring, as I didn’t taste it at all. Otherwise, this recipe is a keeper!!

Another test run I did on Tuesday, was for this recipe, for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars. I was really excited to try these, as the combination sounds super nummy!! Unfortunately, for me, it just didn’t cut it. It wasn’t as flavourful as I thought it would be. I may try these again, in an 8×8 pan, instead of the 9×13 I used. For now though it’s in the maybe pile, and I’m still on the hunt, for a dessert bar recipe to make for Christmas!!

Howell Family Pumpkin Farm – October 5, 2013

(Photo provided by theย internet – thank you to whoever took it!!)

Thanks to a voucher deal, we checked this farm out. There was really not much too it, but then again, it’s tailored to younger kids. But. They did have food!! So, we checkedย that out ๐Ÿ™‚

We saw that they had Spicy Pumpkin Sausage, so my hubby and I got one for each of us. It was tasty and the spicy level was fantastic!! I didn’t really taste the pumpkin, but they may have just used it, to keep the sausage moist ๐Ÿ™‚ There was also a mild version, for those of you, with an aversion to spice. We also saw that they had Pumpkin Spice Donuts. Who could pass up the chance to try those right?! They were fresh made, when you ordered them. So, you can only get them in half dozen orders. Which, at first, we thought that was too much. But, after each of us ate one, we were ok to take 4 more home!! They were perfectly spiced and flavoured with pumpkin. And the powdered sugar, was a nice added touch…omnomnom!!
