1. Pumpkin Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting:
From the SkinnyTaste website that takes everyday recipes and makes them a little lighter. I made these for Halloween and brought them into work. I bring pretty much all my baking experiments in for my coworkers and I usually let them eat one before I tell them how many calories are in them. Everyone was VERY surprised how moist and buttery they tasted but with only 120 something calories a piece!
2. Mama Peas Spicy African Peanut Slow Cooker Soup:
I made this via Mama Peas amazing cookbook, but it's also available from her blog...lucky you! It couldn't be easier and you only have ONE thing to chop. Otherwise, you open up some cans, measure out some spices and voila...dinner! I added some spinach to mine at the end to give it some green.
3. Daily Garnish Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies:
I've made these twice in one week and even my vegan, allergic to everything, coworker loved them. They are light and cakey, with a subtle pumpkin spice kick! I used craisins instead of raisins because I'm obsessed with them. I'm not sharing my second batch, they are all for me!
Question: What is your favorite thing to cook in the fall? Something with pumpkin, soup?
