It seems these days that pumpkin spice is no longer a flavor reserved only for morning lattes. Everywhere you look there’s a pumpkin spice flavored something, be it cookies, coffee, cakes or ice cream. If you’re anything like me, Alyssa, then this is something that you are not mad about one single bit! I know, I know, another girl who can’t get enough of pumpkin spice, but when it’s so delicious, who can blame you?!
That’s why this pumpkin pie pop tart recipe is at the tippy top of my Fall treat list. Basically, they’re like a little piece of cinnamon pumpkin pie heaven that you can have for breakfast because, duh, they’re pop-tarts, not pie! And thanks to puff pastry, they come together in a flash (No whipping up pastry dough required!).
Now, the only thing missing from this perfect fall breakfast is a PSL!…

If there is a hobby that I’ve always, always excelled at, that is snacking (you totally thought I was going to say DIY’ing, didn’t you?!). Oh no, snacking is where I really come alive, my friends, but every now and then I like to reinvent the wheel a bit. Not to seem snooty, but I believe I may have just concocted your newest favorite snack thanks to a little food ingenuity, the deliciousness that is The Laughing Cow® spreadable cheeses, and a serious craving for something sweet (but not too sweet) during my most recent Netflix marathon. I present to you: Dessert cheese and crackers.
That’s right, we can all now take a moment of silence to ask ourselves why we’ve never thought of this before. It’s also the perfect dessert to whip together for entertaining since it’s… literally as simple as cheese on crackers. It only gets better when you consider it’s a far more unique option than the usual go-to’s, plus the individual wedges help give your free-spirited late night portion control a second thought!…
I had my first slice of olive oil cake at a local pop-up dinner a few months ago, and I have seriously been thinking about it ever since! HOW have I never known about olive oil cake before?! At first the name of it kind of grossed me out, but it is seriously the moistest, most delicious cake of all time. I tried my hand at them for the first time last weekend by whipping up these lemon orange olive oil cupcakes as a citrusy twist for Summer, and they were a hit!
My first batch was a bit of a let down because I didn’t use enough olive oil to make it as moist as I would have liked, so the second time around I mixed lemon infused oil and extra virgin olive oil for the perfect combo! Horray for that happy accident, cause it really could have gone either way when I’m in charge, ha!…
