Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

October 22, 2013


I've had this recipe for what feels like forever.  I'm not sure where it came from, all I know is it produces moist, soft and delicious pumpkin cookies.  There's nothing like a soft pumpkin cookie enjoyed with a cup of hot coffee on a Fall evening.  They would also make a perfect whoopee pie cookie!!
 
 They are simple to make, and store for about 1 week in a sealed container.  I have not ever tried freezing them {they don't last that long....} but I would think they would freeze fine, unfrosted.  The frosting is optional, they really are good either way.

Real Food Meal Plan - Week of January 21, 2018

January 22, 2018


If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Foods lifestyle. I actually meal plan monthly but share it here weekly because it makes more sense to do so. Meal planning is my way of controlling the grocery budget (read as a LOT of dollars saved), ensuring there is no food waste for the week, as well as saving...

Simple Living

As a follow-up to “What Is Simple Living”, these are steps (goals) that I’ve been using and will continue to use this year on my own path to a simple, homemade life.  I shared that I come from a family of collectors and that was my first challenge – purging the collections.  It was emotional and difficult at times but I can honestly tell you that I am thrilled that I did it.

So the collections are...

The BEST Deviled Eggs

January 17, 2018

We certainly had no trouble finding people we could gift our beautiful eggs to, but we also wanted to come up with delicious ways to use some of the excess ourselves. I've always loved deviled eggs but when I came across this recipe and...
