Today, I’m excited to share my new twist on an Apple Crumble, it’s so simple, but really takes this dessert from delicious, to absolute fall perfection! The new twist? Adding pumpkin spice to the crumble!
Pumpkin spice does not actually contain pumpkin, it’s simply the spices combined to make a pumpkin spice mix, which includes cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice.
After Kurt took his first bite, his response was “you could open a bakery that just sells these!” They’re seriously that good, they can stand on their own up against any other fall dessert.
They’re the perfect little snack to serve at Halloween parties or to bring to a Friendsgiving celebration. I can definitely tell you that this will not be the only time I make these pumpkin cookies this fall!
Pumpkin Toast is the fall version of Avocado Toast, it’s easy to make with a variety of toppings, from sweet to savory, perfect for breakfast or a snack!
With the first day of fall coming up on Friday, I decided it was time to find as many new ways to eat pumpkin as possible!
As the worlds biggest fan of avocado, I could not love avocado toast anymore, but during the fall and winter months when avocados are harder to find, I felt like avocado toast needed a suitable substitute and pumpkin toast is where it’s at!
Loaded with fiber, potassium and vitamin C, pumpkin is great for heart health and boosting your immune system! I topped my pumpkin toast 7 ways, some sweet, some savory, some perfect for breakfast, others great as a sweet snack and all of them perfect for serving friends and family at all of your fall and winter parties!
White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Cookies are a sweet and delicious treat combining the flavors of fall, perfect for Halloween parties and events!
Last weekend I was invited to attend a BBQ with a friend… about two hours before the BBQ. Being a food blogger, it is completely unacceptable to show up to a BBQ empty handed… even when you only have two hours notice!
I was trying to figure out what I had in my pantry that I could toss together that didn’t require a trip to the grocery store. Luckily I had a bag of white chocolate chips and a bag of Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses staring at me from the pantry.
It was one of those moments where you look at two items, a light bulb goes off and you immediately think “the two of you need to meet and become friends!”
This Pumpkin Ale Ice Cream Float combines scoops of vanilla ice cream with delicious pumpkin ale and a dash of cinnamon for a delicious fall treat!
My favorite time of year is the week when Pumpkin Beer hits the shelves and college football begins!
I somehow managed to take this glorious week and my favorite beer and make it even better in this delicious concoction that transforms a classic dessert favorite into an adult style fall treat with a pumpkin twist!
Ingredients (makes 1 float)
3 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 cup pumpkin ale
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Scoop the ice cream into a tall glass. Pour the pumpkin ale over the ice cream and top with a dash of cinnamon.
This dessert is perfect for the beginning of fall when it’s still warm enough outside to enjoy ice cream, but fall is in the air, so it also feels acceptable to begin drinking pumpkin beer!
And you thought root beer floats couldn’t get better? Well, they just did!
Grab a spoon and dig in to this scrumptious Pumpkin Ale Ice Cream Float!
Pumpkin hummus combines pumpkin puree, garbanzo beans, olive oil & cinnamon into a delicious dip. Serve with cinnamon sugar pita chips or apple slices!
This recipe came to me after eating some of the most amazing hummus of my life at the Little Italy farmers market last weekend.
They had the most unusual flavors including my new favorite, Peanut Butter Hummus. It’s sweet and a little salty and makes the perfect snack with a little pita bread!
I was now inspired to make the next great hummus flavor. I decided on pumpkin. It’s all the rage on Pinterest and with Fall upon us I thought it would be super fun to serve at all the different fall gatherings from Game days to Halloween parties!
If you like pumpkin, you will love this hummus! The cinnamon gives it a slight sweetness, but the pumpkin shines through as the star! This recipe only takes about 10 minutes to make and is something fun and different to take to a party or scoop into mason jars and give as gifts!
Ingredients (makes 5 cups)
1 (29 oz) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1 cup pumpkin
2 tbsp tahini
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp cinnamon
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender.
Blend all of the ingredients together until a creamy texture forms.
Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or so, then serve with cinnamon sugar pita chips.
I made these by slicing 4 pieces of pita bread into triangles and tossing with 2 tbsp melted butter and 2 tbsp cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Place in the oven at 350°F for 5-10 minutes, then serve with the hummus for a delicious treat!
I took this dish to a weekly “Game Night” my friend PK hosts and everybody ate it up!
This is going to be a new fall staple at my house!

Oh my poor neglected blog! 🙁 Mr Rodas, the math professor I like to refer to as the “Grim Reaper”, does not realize that his 40 hours a week of pre-calc homework is affecting more than just those 15 dwindled down suckers still left in the class after the first two exams created by the math devil himself!
It’s affecting the thousands of my loyal blog followers that have not gotten to enjoy my witty sense of humor, delectable recipes or insight into my favorite things for an entire week! But no need to worry, I’ve made my grand entrance back into the blogosphere with an AMAZING new recipe for you all to enjoy in this, my favorite, fall season!!!
