Pumpkin Loaf

Pumpkin Loaf

Pumpkin Loaf.  This loaf of pumpkin bread is made with 1 cup of pumpkin and 1 cup of applesauce. It just screams fall! It is full of goodness, sweetness, and happiness.


I found this cute finger play poem for Jayd and we loved it!

We sat down and welcomed Mr. Pumpkin.

Mr. Pumpkin

by Ruth I. Dowell

Mr. Pumpkin! Well, hello! 

wave hello

You’re back again this year!

I see your eyes; I see your nose;

point to eyes then to nose

 You’re grinning ear to ear!

trace grin on face with finger

Inside we’ll put a candle stick

curve left arm around like a round pumpkin

To make a lantern light;

put right hand into curve of left arm

 Then, set you on the old front porch

move left (curved) arm onto floor or lap

And let you shine all night!

hold both arms up, palm up


There is a Mr. Pumpkin (goodbye) that is absolutely adorable for the next up and coming holiday of Thanksgiving. You must check out her book!


I am truly loving this book and this pumpkin loaf.

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.

  2. Remove and let cool.


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!!

If you know me and have been following my weight loss journey you know that I am addicted to any product of Walden Farms. When I came across this marshmallow dip... I knew it had to be bought! I decided I wanted to make a spread for some bread…. yes… I have had some bread, not a whole lot… and not with every meal but I can say this was worth the calories in the bread!

That is how this recipe came about, I figured adding some pumpkin to it was the right thing to do.

The taste is purrrreee pumpkin with a zing of marshmallow sweetness.

Pumpkin Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Chip Muffins. These are great muffin that almost is biscuit like, but full of goodness and pumpkin sweetness! 


Happy Monday Evening!

I made these Pumpkin Chip Muffins for my family for breakfast this morning… and they were good! They can be gluten-free, but they don’t have to be for those that aren’t really gluten intolerant but choose to be for health reasons. Either way… pumpkin chip goodness!

They are my first recipe using the pumpkin spice chips!

I think they were heavenly! The chips add such a distinct pumpkin flavor! These muffins are like a biscuit, but have a moist center stuffed with pumpkin chips!

What have you made with pumpkin chips??

The Weekend

The Weekend


First of all I ate way to many of these cookies this weekend! Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies. I adapted this recipe to make them gluten free and lighter in the sugar category and pumpkin of course!

Did you know that Baker’s chocolate has no sugar?! I didn’t know that. It is pure chocolate!!! It is 100% cacao! I think I knew this but until my recent lifestyle change it didn’t click. Pure chocolate is really good for you! It doesn’t increase your blood sugar or lead to a sugar crash. It is great for diabetics and it is great for those watching their sugars. I am glad that this finally registered in my brain. I am not one to have to have chocolate but these cookies really hit the spot.
