pumpkin obsession

Yes, I have an addiction. Is it because they are orange, because they are adorable, or because they are fall? Probably all of the above, but I absolutely am obsessed with pumpkins. I literally have to stop myself from buying them at the grocery store!

Not only do I love the pumpkins themselves, I love to eat them! Here are a few links to recipes that I love and a few I'm dying to try..

  • Few shakes of pumpkin spice (Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice)
  • Few shakes of cinnamon (optional)
  • Pinch of cloves

  • 4-5 ice cubes
