Pumpkin Spice Dip

Pumpkin dip was a staple in the fall when I was growing up.  It’s adult enough for taste and still so fun to eat with Teddy Grahams.  I absolutely love this snack and it will be sure to impress people if you take it to their house!  Keep in mind though that when you make it, it makes a LOT so be sure there are people around to help you enjoy this pumpkin deliciousness!

Mulled Cider

I have always been a huge apple cider lover from little on.  But I always drink my apple cider warm.  If I wanted it cold, I would reach for apple juice!  So when a friend from my old job brought this mulled cider into work last fall, I knew that I was going to be asking for the recipe before I even tried it and I was right!  I made this for a party we…

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Everything has been smelling like fall lately.  Just the way October should smell.  I decided tonight would be the night I made my house smell like fall too.  These cookies did just the trick.  Now I’m usually more of an apples person when it comes to baking in the fall but these little bites of heaven tasted like a miniature cake they were so soft!  The icing I had made a little too thin so…

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients  12-14 Brussels Sprouts 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 clove garlic, minced (or you could be like me who just put a spoon of already minced garlic and then just kept adding more…

Veggie Cheese Quesadilla

I can’t lie.  I made some pretty fantastic dishes for book club tonight and I was going to photograph one of them for this here recipe post.  As luck would have it the first person walked in at 6:30pm and I felt stupid busting out my camera to take pictures of the food we were about to devour.  Hence the reason I am recycling this recipe from Read, Eat, Create.  You may have seen it…

Super-Rocky Road Brownies

I have a major sweet tooth.  I’m not really a big cupcake or cake lover and I have to be in the mood for cookies (say whaaaa?) but I have a serious soft spot in my heart for brownies.  Another soft spot when it comes to sweets for me is icecream (it’s the only thing I craved during my first trimester), specifically Rocky Road ice cream.  Anyone else with me on this? So I figured…
