{recipe} Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Squares

For the last two years, I’ve done a bake sale during fall season to raise funds for charity.  We fundraise and do the 5K walk every October. As part of my contribution to my team, I like to do a bake sale so I can raise money and entice family and friends to donate to a […]

{recipe} pumpkin pie oatmeal bake

I made a simple pumpkin oatmeal bake on a Sunday afternoon, with the intentions of having it for breakfast for the next 5 days until Friday. Lets just say that by Wednesday, it was all gone. This happened last year, when I was 4.5 months pregnant. The first trimester was over and I was happy […]

Fall Baking Begins – Pumpkin Spice Granola

I’ve been drinking a lot of tea lately. Chai tea with almond milk to be exact. Our house is filled with different candles in each room. I’m currently loving the Spiced Cider scent from Bath and Body works. I bought it last week and the large jar is half way done. I love that it’s […]

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Since the adults already dressed up this past weekend for Halloween, it was time for the kids to be their cute alter ego. Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog movie says hello. My niece has been waiting all month long to wear her costume. Every time I saw her, she kept reminding me that […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Muffins

After the rain we had this week, the sun finally came out in time for the weekend. We wanted to soak up the rays before the next rain comes our way. We spent the early part of the evening in Anaheim’s Garden Walk. It’s a few blocks from Disneyland and not too far way from […]

Scenes from Fall

The sun is shining and the weather is warm around here. It doesn’t feel like October, but the calendar says it is. We are having weird weather where it is still very warm during the day but it significantly cools down in the evening. Oddly, it’s still warm enough that I could have gone to […]

Here goes this weeks eats… I made a batch of these Coconut {Chickpea} Waffles this past weekend and I’ve been eating […]

Pumpkin Pancakes

I created this pancake and topping combination during my run today. During my cool down, my mind started thinking about breakfast. I had a nice and short run this morning, trying to keep my legs fresh for my 10K Turkey Trot tomorrow morning. I have been eating a lot of red food lately and it […]

Banana Grilled Sandwich and Wedding Wednesday

I am still on a pumpkin high. After incorporating pumpkin on several creations in the kitchen lately, I am still not sick of it. That’s good, because there was a big sale last week and I stocked up. The nice folks at Julian Bakery sent me a few loaves of their bread to sample. They […]
