Super Easy Treats for My Simple Halloween Dessert Table – My Tuesday {ten} No.20

For this week's Tuesday {ten} I thought I would share some super simple ideas I used to put together this Halloween dessert table a couple of weeks ago. Since my little guy has been taken off of food it really has been a struggle for me to even think of any kind of tasty treat. The thrill I used to have putting together parties isn't quite the same, though food is such a social part of society, it is kind of hard hosting a gathering without incorporating it some how. So despite what it may seem, this table was incredibly easy to put together Continue reading

I love breaking out the slow cooker this time of year to 'fix and forget' some warm comfort meals. While I have used my crock-pots and slow cookers for many convenient dishes, I have never really thought about using them to make any tasty desserts.So this week's Saturday Inspiration and Ideas is a collection of 40 different crock pot slow cooker recipes. I really like the idea of having a nice warm dessert already cooking and ready to go without spending any additional time away from guests during a dinner party. There are even recipes for Continue reading

Pumpkin Chiffon Cake Recipe

Pumpkin Chiffon Cake Recipe

I admit, I 'm really am not a huge fan of pumpkin pie - though I don't mind pumpkin in other types of desserts. I recently came upon this Pumpkin Chiffon Cake recipe in the September issue of Rachel Ray and just had to give it a try. I thought it would be a great alternative to offer during the holidays for those like myself who want a little pumpkin sweetness, without it being in the form of a pie. This foam cake is very light and airy and reminds me somewhat of an angel food type cake. The difference though between chiffon and angel food Continue reading

Homemade Pumpkin Roll Recipe

I had some pumpkin left over from the Frozen Pumpkin Yogurt last week and thought I would put it to good use. This is my Mom's Pumpkin Roll recipe and clearly my sister has donned it as her signature dessert as she is the one who normally makes them for everyone each year. These are super easy to make and other than the pumpkin, the other ingredients are more than likely already in your pantry. It is perfect for this time of year and a great treat to make for others. These even freeze really well if you would like to bake ahead for Continue reading

Dairy Free Banana – Orange Vanilla Shakes {GF/CF, Soy & Rice Free}

I know there are quite a few readers who are on restrictive diets {or know someone who is} - so when I am able to test, try, and find something that is a tasty and free of most allergens I feel compelled to share {as we all know finding tasty alternatives is not always a walk in park - especially for little ones} With the extensive heat we have been having, a regular milkshake would not typically be on the top of my list for cooling off; however, this dairy free concoction combining fresh fruit and Hemp Dream is quite refreshing and yummy Continue reading
