Applesauce Spice Cake

When I reflect on my (f)unemployment of the past 7+ weeks, I realize that, in a way, it’s really been a win-win situation for not only myself, but all my friends. You might not understand what I mean, so let me explain. I used to have a job where I worked all the time, as […]

I tweaked it slightly, as I […]

In fact I may not have entered at all if my friend Ale hadn’t placed an order with me for a dozen pumpkin spice cupcakes to have on hand for some weekend visitors. My […]

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

I’m all about pumpkin lately, as you’ll see in my upcoming posts, and why not? ‘Tis the season! I’ve been snapping up recipes even faster than I’ve been snatching cans of pumpkin from the food store. I’ve made pumpkin soup, put pumpkin in my breakfast smoothie, some in my tomato sauce, and, of course, in […]
