Perfectly Spiced Pumpkin Pie

Fall starts tomorrow! I wanted to test out a few pies before the Holidays, the first pie I made was a Caramel Apple Pecan Pie and it was absolutely delicious. Pumpkin pie is pretty simple to make, it's just a little tough getting the right amount of spices that you like. I wanted a little more spice, so I simply sprinkled some pumpkin spice and nutmeg over the pie and homemade whipped cream which gave it more flavor and made it look pretty. =)


Hey everyone! Don't worry I have a really good excuse for not posting the last few days.

Turkey Sandwich and Tomato Soup

I went out to lunch today and had the most amazing food! I had a smoked turkey breast sandwich with roasted red pepper and rustic Italian bread! This is by far one of my favorite sandwiches.

Trip to the ocean

Every year...well for the past 3 years my boyfriend and I have gone on a kite trip. We try to go to a different place each year. It's funny, on our 1st annual kite trip we drove to our destination and stayed for 1 night. We slept in the car, which was not the most comfortable but we made it fun by making a fort with the blankets we brought. Our 2nd kite trip we camped out and slept in a tent. This year, we spent two nights in a pretty nice hotel RIGHT on the beach! It was really nice, they even had a pool/hot tub which was very relaxing. Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed our trip! =)

Caramel Apple Pecan Pie! Test # 1

So my favorite time of the year is coming up quickly, Autumn! It's in 19 days. I wanted to make a test pie before the Holidays since I've never made one before. Of course the one I chose to make might just be the most difficult time consuming (delicious) pie ever. Oh well! I am quite proud of this pie since it was indeed my first time ever making one! It took a good chunk out of my day but was totally worth it! =) This post has three will see that I made pie crust, pie filling and homemade whipped cream!
