October is Pumpkin Treat Month: Part Tres

Wow I am really bad at writing these up. I’m behind two weeks now! Ok so two weekends ago, I took a break and my friend Jackie bake up Paula Deen’s Pumpkin Bars. They were absolutely sinful! And butterlicious, of course. Here’s the recipe. I highly suggest it.

After all the treats I’ve been making, Boyfriend requested I take a break from the sweets, so on Sunday (after carving up our pumpkin), I roasted the pumpkin seeds. I found a plethora of recipes involving various spices, but I decided to go the simple route and cook them in olive oil and sea salt, using this recipe. According to Boyfriend, “A good start, but needs experimentation.” Maybe next time, I’ll try some of the fancy spices.

This is my last weekend making pumpkin treats. I’m not sure which route to go: traditional with a pumpkin pie or a twist like pumpkin spiced latte cupcakes. Any thoughts?

Ok so I know I’m really late on writing this one up, but my second choice for my pumpkin treat series was…wait for it…Pumpkin NUTELLA Swirl Bread. This is probably one of the best things I have ever made in my life. So simple and so delicious. Even Boyfriend’s Roommate approved (although he eats everything).

Link to recipe is here. I highly recommend this one. It will not disappoint.

p.s. I made two normal-sized loaves, and froze one of them to keep it fresh.

October is Pumpkin Treat Month

Lately, I have found dozens of recipes for pumpkin treats, mostly on Pinterest. So I’ve decided that every weekend in October, I’m going to make one of these recipes and share them here. 

First treat: Lowfat Pumpkin Oatmeal Spice Cookies. You can find the recipe here.

Wet and dry ingredients

Mixed all together.

End product.

Although it sounds awesome and delicious, these cookies were disappointing, at least to me. Boyfriend is enjoying them. They taste kinda dry, so maybe next time less oats or more pumpkin? I left out the glaze, so maybe that was the problem.

I’m hoping next weekend’s treat turns out better. I’m thinking pumpkin bread or brownies…

Nutella Hot Chocolate  -1 cup of milk (any kind of milk will work) -2 spoonfuls of Nutella (this is my preference, but feel free to add as  much or as little as you like) -whipped cream -mini marshmallows Directions: Pour about 1/4 of the milk into a saucepan on medium-low heat. Add the  Nutella and whisk until blended. Slowly stir in the remaining milk. Add a  pinch of cinnamon and whisk until hot and frothy. Carefully pour the  mixture into a mug, add whipped cream, and mini marshmallows.
Just made this and it tastes AMAZING!

In honor of Boyfriend’s birthday and for the many Memorial Day BBQ’s this weekend, I decided to make some Cookies and Cream cupcakes. These are super tasty and super easy to make, plus everyone is really impressed when they eat them.

What you need:

  • One package of white cake mix (and whatever ingredients that requires, which is usually eggs, and vegetable oil).
  • 1 cup of coarsely crushed Oreo’s
  • 24 Oreo halves
  • Frosting (I use a whipped cream cheese frosting)

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake tin with paper cups.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Fold in the crushed Oreo bits. Place an Oreo half in the bottom of each paper cup, cream side up.
  3. Spoon batter (I use an ice cream scoop) into paper cups, filling them about 3/4 of the way.
  4. Bake according to directions. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely.
  5. Frost cupcakes. Crush about 6-10 more cookies and add crushed bits to the top.
  6. ENJOY!

This recipe is a combination of this recipe and this recipe.

What I did Easter weekend: Painted my nails Tiffany Blue and made Ina Garten’s coconut cupcakes. Although next time, I’m definitely cutting back on the almond in that recipe because it was like all almond, very little coconut.
