Pumpkin Crazy Cake

Pin It
A while back I adapted the Chocolate Crazy Cake from Sweet Little Bluebird's blog into a Mocha Crazy Cake and while I was at it I decided because it's Fall I'd make a Pumpkin one too.

These are the easiest one dish cakes ever.  You can mix, bake, and serve all out of the same baking dish.

These are depression era cakes (when ingredients were scarce and they had to make do) so they are also completely dairy free (without the frosting that is) and perfect for those of you with egg or dairy allergies.

Pumpkin Maple Coffee Cake

Pin It
This is the Holy Grail of Pumpkin recipes!

You know, that one recipe that everyone begs you to bring to get togethers and functions.

That recipe that everyone ask for over and over again.

I kid you not.

This Pumpkin Maple Coffee Cake is the best reinvention of a recipe I have made so far.

I took my Coffee Cake recipe and added some pumpkin and other goodies and it turned into my new favorite pumpkin recipe of the year!  Maybe even the decade :)

Mocha Crazy Cake

Pin It

While I was checking out Facebook a while back I found this recipe over at Sweet Little Bluebird blog for Chocolate Crazy Cake and adapted it slightly for a Mocha Cake.

What is Crazy Cake you ask?  It's a cake that was developed during the depression when some food items were scarce; like eggs, milk, and butter.  

This is a cake that is made without any eggs, milk, or butter.  This cake is dairy free; which is perfect for those of you with egg or dairy allergies.

Here comes all the wonderful pumpkin recipes!

I know not everyone is a pumpkin fan and I'm sorry that you have to endure (lol, not really) but I'll be posting plenty of apple recipes this Fall too.

I created two new pumpkin cookie recipes to date and I love them both just the same.

Pan Grilled Pork Chops and Healthy Solutions Spice Blends

Pin It
Many of you know I don't do reviews very often because I like cook as much from scratch as I can.

So when Healthy Solutions Spice Blends asked me to do a review of their product I was completely on board to try these delicious sounding spice blends with my everyday cooking.

Healthy Solutions offers a line of 16 different spice blends made for busy families that prefer homemade meals over fast food.

Italian Beef Dip Sandwiches

Pin It
I know I've said it a million times but I LOVE pot roast!  There I said it again :)

I think it's because of how versatile this cut of meat is and all the delicious ways I can cook it that makes me love it so much.

Besides actual "Pot Roast" with potatoes and carrots, etc.  I love to make it into shredded beef such as Authentic Shredded Mexican Beef or Chili Colorado Burritos but my new favorite is Italian Shredded beef ~ Oh Yum!

Maple Pumpkin Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pin It
With getting back into the swing of blogging after several months off, I'm happy to say that I get to start up at one of my favorite times of year.

I love Fall because of the crisp cold mornings and evenings and all the pumpkin and apple recipes I get to test and create as well as all the slow cooker recipes I'll be making this year too.

So along the Fall baking line, I've been trying new pumpkin recipes this week.

Ham & Swiss Sliders

Pin It
I have been wanting to make these delicious Ham & Swiss Sliders for a while now.

I have three adults at home most days for lunch and we get tired of the same old sandwiches or salads and I love to test new recipes on my hubby and son.  Lucky for me they both also like ham & cheese :)

These were a huge hit and I'll definitely be making them again for a crowd.
