Baked Pumpkin Donuts

It’s official… it’s Pumpkin Season! I was more than ready to hop on board… although I really don’t know why we only tend to eat/make pumpkin recipes this time of year. It’s not like pumpkin, whether it be in a can or not, isn’t available year round!!! I will have to ponder that one lol!

This time it is Pumpkin Donuts I made, baked Pumpkin Donuts to be exact! While baking as opposed to frying them probably doesn’t make them healthy, it definitely makes them better for you than fried donuts…. at least that’s what I am telling myself!

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

That smell!!!! We eat them all year but I still find something “Fall” about the smell of homemade Cinnamon Rolls baking. It is almost like comfort food for your nose lol!

Cinnamon rolls are easier to make than you might think and taste so much better than those you pick up at the grocery store!

Parmesan Ranch Pumpkin Seeds

Okay, here are the Pumpkin Seeds as mentioned in my Nemo Pumpkin post. I roasted the pumpkin seeds first and then added the ingredients listed below and roasted them again for a little bit so the seeds are well roasted, well done (because Chris likes them that way) and taste delicious!

I will admit that there is nothing quite like a feed of freshly roasted pumpkin seeds lol!

Thanksgiving Recap

I thought with our Canadian Thanksgiving being this coming weekend… October the 8th (and yes, I do know it seems early, especially to those of you in the US!)… I would do a recap of some of our favourite holiday recipes.  There are some things you just have to have with your turkey dinner…. stuffing, mashed potatoes, good gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie…. you get the picture!

Here are some of our previous posts featuring our all time favourites, and well loved, Thanksgiving/holiday recipes!

Pom Pompom Pumpkins 

I decided to do one more Halloween/Pumpkin craft this week. Pom Pompom Pumpkins. 

This is another very easy, kid friendly craft. All that’s required is some Orange wool, a piece of cardboard, green pipe cleaner and scissors. 

I made a quick pompom maker from the cardboard. 


I wrapped the wool around and around until it looked fat enough. 


I wrapped another piece of wool around the wrapped wool, in the slot in the cardboard, added a piece of pipe cleaner and tied it tight.


Next I removed it from the cardboard and cut through the loops on each side.


I gave it a good shake and started to trim them.


Curled the ends of the pipe cleaner and tied a knot in the long piece of wool for hanging, and that’s it! Pompom Pompom Pumpkins!

Wine Cork Pumpkin

I dragged Dillon to the BIG dollar store on Friday and I picked up a few packages of wine corks with this project in mind.  In hindsight, I should have bought the wine corks that were cylinderical in shape, not the ones with a wider end.  Either way, I made the corks into pumpkins.
