Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe...Kitchen Tip

Now that the Fall season is upon us, there are so many delicious pumpkin recipes being shared.  Most of these pumpkin recipes call for Pumpkin Pie Spice; which is sold in a tiny jar in the grocery store.  The last time I purchased pumpkin pie spice, it was almost $6.00...for a small container.  After a little research, I discovered that we can easily make this spice with ingredients already in my spice cabinet.

Halloween Cookies

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine gave me a cute gift...all the dry ingredients needed to make cookies, packaged in a jar with the baking instructions attached.  All I had to do was add the liquid ingredients. The jar was so cute, it sat on my counter for a few weeks until we started craving something sweet a few days ago. These are Jani's Cookies or "Halloween Cookies" I made from this great gift.

Crock Pot Recipe Round Up

If you're a follower of my blog or my Facebook page, then you know how much I love my crock pot. I love being able to put a meal together early in the morning and have dinner ready when I come home.  I put together a great round up of recipes that I want to try and hope that you will also.  These recipes all look amazing!

Chili Baked Potatoes

Last week I shared Crock Pot Chili with you and it was such a delicious recipe. But it did make quite a bit for just three people.  I  thought maybe we could have the leftovers in a different way...instead of just reheated the chili.  So the other night we had Chili Baked Potatoes and they were really good!

Candy Corn Treats

Growing up I never really enjoyed candy corn.  My mother used to make cupcakes around this time of year and she would put candy corn on top of the cupcakes to decorate them.  I always picked the candy corn off. When my daughter was little she discovered candy corn and loved to have this treat. And since it's been in our house so much over the years, I have grown to love the taste as well.   Here are a few adorable treats using candy corn that I found from a few blogging friends.  Enjoy!

Crock Pot Chili

The other day on my Walking on Sunshine Facebook Page, I mentioned that I had never made chili. There were quite a few surprised people.  And then the recipes started coming in.  I had a fun time reading all the recipes and comments and put together a really yummy recipe of Crock Pot Chili that I want to share with you today.
