Do I really need to say much to get you on board here? They're squishy, sweet, pumpkin-y with warm fall spices. I mean, hot, freshly fried dough covered in a glaze... what's not to want? The only "problem" is that they taste best fresh. So there's you're excuse to throw self-control out the window. Let's make Pumpkin Doughnuts together...
I've been meaning to put this on the blog for a while now, but every time I make it I'm in a hurry and don't have time to take the photos. Until the other day. Like most good dinners I make, this recipe came from my sister. When Jeremy and I got married she gave me a recipe box with a bunch of handwritten recipes. They have been SO useful. One that we make fairly often is this. I love this Jambalaya because it's super easy, so flavorful, so warm, pretty spicy, and is 90% pantry staples! The only thing that isn't is the meat and those things stay good for months in the fridge. So keep this as your oh-crap-I-didn't-plan-dinner dinner. You won't be sorry. Let's make Jambalaya together...
I've already posted two pumpkin recipes this fall... and I fully intend to keep posting them until I absolutely can't. So, I figured I should probably show you how easy it is to make Pumpkin Puree at home! PLEASE, Let this be the year you make pumpkin purée. Turn a $4 pumpkin into six cans worth of pumpkin purée. It’s easy. It’s fresh. It’s so much more flavorful! Promise you’ll try? Let’s make pumpkin purée together.
Texans have some insane pride. I honestly don’t know why. Like, what’s so great about Texas? It’s hot, it’s definitely one of the least pretty states, it take FOREVER to get anywhere, and we get tornados. So really, someone tell me why Texas is so great. I’m a born and raised Texan but I still don’t get it. The more places I travel the more I don’t get it. Since I live in Texas that means it’s 100° in the Fall. Yay! So that means no campfires, no warm fall treats, no making S’MORES. I actually didn’t used to like s’mores. Or marshmallows. But I’ve turned a new leaf and the other day ALL I could think about was how much I wanted a s’more. More specifically I wanted the bite of graham cracker and chocolate. Cause that’s the best part. After crying over the fact that s’mores wouldn’t be a reality till late December or January... I found another way. I decided to take a Rice Krispie Treat and turn it into s’mores. I’m sure something like this already exists, but I’d never tasted one or tried to make one before. So I set out and did it. And they’re dangerous. Jeremy and I ate half the tray in one day. So then I took the rest to my parent’s house and they were gone in minutes. They’re SO good. These are definitely the solution when you don’t have the means to make s’mores. So let’s make s’mores bars together...
