I often forget how easy pudding is to make, especially when you use some store bought short cuts. With very minimal ingredients, you’ll have a decadent and delicious pumpkin pudding in minutes! All four of these ingredients always seem to stay stocked in my pantry anyway, therefore this pudding is just within reach at any moment.

The pumpkin pudding has a beautifully creamy consistency and the flavor is delicious. You get hints of the vanilla, pumpkin and pumpkin spices. All of the flavors are the season’s best and shine through.

This would be a wonderful treat to have your children help you make as well. I made it extra easy by mixing it in my blender, but you’re welcome to stir it too. All kids love stirring, especially when they can safely lick the spoon! Even my pumpkin hating husband loved this pudding!

As another plus, these roasted potatoes are so much healthier than French fries. I used to love French fries but after trying these at a friend’s place, fries just aren’t [...]

Simple Solutions for Game Day Entertaining

Although we’ve felt it coming for several weeks now, Sunday marked the first official day of fall. The leaves are changing, apples are ripe for picking, and most importantly (around here anyhow), football season is in full swing! We love to entertain friends while cheering on our favorite teams, but busy work weeks and a [...]

Minty Raspberry-Banana Smoothie {vegan} from GoodLifeEats & Queen of Quinoa

I’m a huge fan of smoothies. I have them almost every day for breakfast and sometimes when I don’t feel like cooking (or my family is out of the house), smoothies are my dinner too. They’re the perfect meal in a glass. I can load them up with fruits and veggies, protein, superfoods and natural [...]

Fall Breakfast Recipes

It is getting to the time of year that I love. Fall. We always enjoy making special breakfast goodies this time of year. Having the oven on makes the kitchen warm and toasty. I can’t think of anything that beats enjoying something apple, pumpkin, or cinnamon-y for breakfast on a chilly morning. I thought I’d [...]
