Pumpkin White Chocolate Cookies - the most delicious pumpkin cookies recipe! A must make!

Are you still loving pumpkin?

Okay good, me too!

Today I’ve got these yummy Pumpkin White Chocolate Cookies! Pumpkin and white chocolate is one of my favorite combos in the fall. Something about the earthy pumpkin with the super sweet white chocolate just makes my mouth happy.

For the cookies, I tried out the Monk Fruit In The Raw® for the first time. You guys know I love the In The Raw® family of sweeteners for my coffee every morning and I’ve really enjoyed trying all of them in baked goods this year.

Monk Fruit In The Raw® is made from delicious vine-ripened monk fruit. It has 0 calories and it’s perfect for coffee or tea. And since it measures cup for cup like sugar, it’s perfect for baking!

The cookies are fabulous. I made them on a Saturday and my kids immediately started claiming them for their school lunches. As if they were going to last that long!

It’s a really simple recipe and thanks to the Monk Fruit In The Raw®, the sugar content is really low compared to other cookies. I did use 1/2 cup brown sugar but only because it makes the cookies a bit chewier than they would have otherwise been.

Seriously, you have to make these before fall ends!

Pumpkin Beer Bread - the BEST pumpkin bread recipe!

First up: This is the best pumpkin bread I’ve ever had.

Now that the important stuff is out of the way, can we talk about how proud I am of myself?

I’ve bought 4 Christmas presents. And I feel like I am ahead of the game. I know some of your probably started your shopping last December 26th but man, this is early for me.

Nothing has actually gotten here yet but they are ordered, I have a pretty good list of everything else I need to buy, and I’m feeling super prepared and pumped for the holidays.

I even got excited about going to buy a Christmas tree because my hair girl was telling me about a Christmas tree farm around here. And then shortly after I sent my husband a text that said, “OMG WE HAVE TO GO CUT DOWN OUR OWN CHRISTMAS TREE!” I realized that we have a fake tree.


Pumpkin Beer Bread - the BEST pumpkin bread recipe!

Back to the bread!

Seriously, this Pumpkin Beer Bread has changed my life. The recipe makes 2 loaves and after polishing off the first one by myself, I almost had a complete breakdown when the husky decided to eat the other one.

I called it beer bread but let me recommend that you use a hard cider instead. I know, why call it beer bread then? Because you can totally use any beer you enjoy. But I don’t like beer and buying a 6-pack of beer seemed like a really big commitment for someone who doesn’t like beer. The cider worked wonderfully. I used a seasonal cinnamon one – so perfect!

I don’t even know how to explain how delicious. So soft, so moist, perfectly spiced!

Heeeey guys! Happy almost weekend! My kids have a random half day today – isn’t that weird? I’ve never heard of a half day in the middle of the week.

Let’s all hope that I don’t forget to pick them up.

You know what. I’m gonna set an alarm. Better safe than sorry.


Today is an exciting day because not only do I have another pumpkin recipe but I also have a Kitchen Stand Mixer giveaway!

These Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Cream Cheese Filling were inspired by my current favorite candle. I know, so typical.

Anyway, it’s the Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow candle from Bath and Body Works and I am obsessed. It’s sweet, pumpkiny and everything I’ve ever wanted in a candle. If you aren’t burning it in every room in your house… why not?!

These whoopie pies are so tasty! The cookie itself is soft and a little bit spicy and the filling is as delicious as it sounds!

I don’t know if we’ve ever talked about it but I loooove my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. It took years for me to give in and buy one because I really didn’t think I’d use it much but I use it at least once a day. Not just for mixing up cookies and cakes but for things like shredding chicken and making whipped cream too!

Enter below using the Rafflecopter widget. Lots of chances to enter so make sure you get them all! And good luck!

Paleo Pumpkin Waffles - healthy and delicious waffles recipe!

Meet my newest paleo breakfast obsession.

I am typically more of a fan of a savory breakfast but sometimes a girl just wants waffles. Especially this time of year when pumpkin anticipation has officially taken over my life. I CAN’T WAIT FOR PUMPKIN EVERYTHING!

As someone who doesn’t like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen first thing in the morning, I appreciate an easy breakfast recipe that won’t have me breaking a sweat before I even finish my first cup of coffee. No beating egg whites separately and then gently folding them in, you know? This recipe is all mixed in one bowl and then cooks up in minutes.

These paleo pumpkin waffles are so yummy! You get just a hint of the pumpkin — it’s not overpowering, but you know it’s there. They are a little spicy thanks to the cinnamon and cloves in the pumpkin pie spice, and super yummy because of the banana. And don’t worry if you aren’t a coconut person, the coconut flour and coconut oil don’t add much flavor but the coconut flour gives the waffles that texture that I absolutely love in paleo baked goods.

My husband likes to cover his in sunflower seed butter and then fold it sandwich style for a portable breakfast, but I prefer to spread mine with the sunflower seed butter and then drizzle a little warm maple syrup over the top. Because why not? It is so delicious that way, and I definitely recommend that you try it on any waffle.

Paleo waffles can be such a pain. Sometimes they stick to the waffle maker, sometimes they fall apart when you try to remove them, sometimes they are so dense and dry that you can’t even eat them. But these? They are light and fluffy and definitely one of the best paleo waffle recipes I have tried.

I’m the Paleo Fanatic over at Food Fanatic! This Paleo Pumpkin Waffles recipe is one of many I’m sharing over there so make sure you check back!

Hey guys! How as the long weekend? I hope it was long and fabulous!  And I hope you’re as excited as I am for a short week!

First up: I have to admit that I’ve had 5 Pumpkin Spice Lattes since Friday.


It’s a problem.

I’m keeping a tally on the whiteboard in my office so I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Second: I am having the worst pumpkin baking luck.

I’ve made 3 different things and all 3 failed. Well, to be fair, the first was only a fail because I tried to photograph it in July and it’s so flippin’ hot here that the whipped cream melted literally seconds after I put it on the plate.

So I just ate it all instead of blogging about it.

The other two were total fails.

My first successful pumpkin goodie this year is this Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats recipe.

Hey, the pups are just as excited as I am about pumpkin season!

I was almost tempted to give these a try because they smelled so good when baking. I mean, pumpkin, peanut butter, cinnamon! What’s not to love? My dogs loved them and I’m sure yours will too!
