Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies..

why haven’t I shared this recipe with you before??

This recipe is an oldie but goodie! I got this recipe from my sister-in-law many moons ago. I love how it uses a whole cup of pumpkin.

I had a friend who needed some cookies for a bake sale that they are having at our local library. I decided these needed to be made for the event.

How are you enjoying pumpkin season??

I have to admit since going on this lifestyle change I haven’t had as many goodies… which is very good I know… but that means its hard when you have to bake goodies like these and not be able to enjoy them. I know the benefits and the reason or purpose behind my lifestyle change and it truly has blessed me and made me healthier, but my problem isn’t with the cookies themselves, it’s the fact that I just cannot have one. I am sure you can relate!!!

These definitely are not healthy just because they have pumpkin in them… but they are really good pumpkin cookies!

I simply melted some orange candy chocolate melts and scribbled some on it! I think it gives it a little bit more of a pumpkin flare!

Do you have a favorite pumpkin cookie recipe?? Here is another one that I share earlier on the blog that is made with a cake mix… just as good!

I need to add more real pumpkin into my life through other means… but cookies is always a good idea!!!

Happy Pumpkin Day!!

I hope you enjoy these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!!

Happy October! I love this month so much! I love the colors of this month… black, whites, greens, oranges, purples. It truly is such a wonderful time of year! I love to decorate for Halloween. I love the witches, the candy { except now I will not be eating any of it}, I love the kids excitement, I love the chili cook offs, I love the changing of the colors, I love the cool crisp mornings, I love the white and orange pumpkins, I love the costumes, I love this month! This last month of September was by far my favorite so far! I loved decorating for fall. I was blessed. This month is going to be exhilarating too!

Haunted House Mirror

Haunted House Mirror

Today is the last day of September. Every since I started following blogs I loved how the girls at Eighteen 25  have their Spooktacular September Series! For the last few years… I have followed along their journey and the posting of cute Halloween Ideas. Today… I am sharing my idea with all of you!

This idea for a Haunted House Mirror came to me almost two years ago as I was running. At that time it was hard to find an over-the-door mirror. The next year I found the mirror and then we were in the process of selling our home and moving so it didn’t get done. Then… this year I knew I had to do! If I would post for these amazing ladies… this is what I would have posted in the series!
