Even though Fall has officially been here in Texas, the weather has finally decided to change too. Only in Texas do we have 90 degree days in the middle of October. This week brought temperatures in the 70s and I can’t tell you how excited it’s made me. The cooler weather gives me all sorts of energy and the attitude to get stuff done.
This past weekend, I made a list of all the things I wanted to accomplish and surprisingly, I’ve kept with my list. I’ve cleaned out a large portion of my house, washed all the blankets laying around, deep cleaned the kitchen and more. Now, I’m working on finishing up the Halloween decorations.
In the midst of all the decorating, cleaning and running around like a crazy person, I’ve found some time to play around in the kitchen. I love to snack on food during the day and if possible, I love to make my own snacks instead of buying them straight from the store. Since pumpkin is all over the place now, I knew I had to have a recipe with Pumpkin Spice. After some thinking, I threw together this delicious recipe that is great to have around the house to snack on or even better for parties. Now, let’s make some Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies!

I wouldn’t be able to do all of this holiday cooking without amazing products that assist in everything I do. Having appliances that don’t work properly or are outdated can put a major damper on cooking. Before replacing my appliances, I would get so irritated that my meals weren’t cooking properly or that half of my cookies were burnt to a crisp. It wasn’t a user error, it was the appliance not doing it’s just correctly. Since replacing my appliances, my cooking (and nerves) are on a different level. ‘
