Fall Recipes, Deals and Steals!
Fall is just around the corner and I am beyond excited. I have been testing fall recipes, finding fall deals and hunting for home decor inspiration in anticipation of September. I usually wait until the last weekend in August to decorate so this year I will attempt to hold out until after labor day. Here are just a few fun recipes, deals and home decor ideas to inspire you this season.
Pumpkin spice mix for any recipe:
3 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp all spice
Store in air tight container for 6 months.
Add 1 tsp of this mixture to your single cup coffee grounds and brew for pumpkin spice coffee! Add 1 tbsp if you are brewing a pot of coffee.
Easy Pumpkin Smoothie:
