Pumpkin Spice Donuts with Cream Cheese Frosting

 

CoverMiniDonutIcedTXT

Sometimes I think that Donuts are just a way for me to eat something with frosting for breakfast, and I’m completely okay with that! I’m not sure if you’ve had Cake Batter donuts before, but my one regret was not putting some funfetti frosting on those suckers! The glaze was good, and the chocolate on top was good, but nothing beats a good vanilla funfetti frosting.

For a little taste of fall I thought I’d make some Pumpkin Spice Donuts. I knew that Cream Cheese frosting would go perfectly with them. I don’t believe that Cream Cheese frosting goes with any kind of cake. There’s only certain flavors that work with a cream cheese frosting. Carrot Cake, Red Velvet Cake (which I don’t like), and Pumpkin or Spice Cake!

Apple Pie Cupcakes with Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

Cover-Three-Apple-Cupcakes-On-Plate-text
I like Apple Pie, but my favorite is the Dutch Apple Pie. You know, with the crumbly stuff on top? I just can’t get enough of that streusel. But I figured I’d try making something without that streusel this time. So I decided on an Apple Pie Cupcake. You can’t go wrong with that. But I knew I didn’t want to do an actual filling in the cupcake. I wanted the Apple Pie filling to be folded into the batter. I knew this would create a nice, moist cupcake.

Now if you decide that you’d rather bake the cupcakes without the Apple Pie filling folded in, you can do that too. You can then add in the filling in after the cupcakes have cooled. Either way works. Go ahead and do whatever floats your boat! [Read more...]

Souper Bowl Sunday ~ Lasagna Soup

Lasagna Soup

Welcome to a special edition of Souper Bowl Sunday! If you remember, a few years back I did a “Souper Bowl Sunday” series and featured a different soup each week? Well now that the weather is cooler I’m back for a special edition! The weather is cooling down and it’s not too warm out to have soup. There are days where we still have to use the air conditioner, but overall it’s pretty nice outside. When I leave for work in the morning I love that I’m not sweating as soon as I step foot out of the door!

One of my favorite comforts foods is Lasagna. It’s always packed with so much flavor and there are always tons of leftovers to have for lunch the next day or to freeze for later. There are so many different things you can add to change up Lasagna so it’s not always the same. One of my favorite things to do is to add ground Italian sausage and spinach to my Lasagna. The sausage adds so much more flavor and the spinach gives you those extra nutrients!

I came across this Lasagna Soup and knew that I had to make it. I made something similar once before – Meatball Soup. But I had these cute little Mafalda noodles so I knew they’d work perfectly! If you don’t have those you can just use the broken up lasagna noodles or feel free to use any other kind of noodle.

This is the perfect soup to eat while watching Football! Go Eagles!! [Read more...]

Homemade Double Chocolate Cake Donuts

Six Donuts

More often than not, we’ve been going to Reading Terminal Market on Saturday mornings to pick up donuts from  our favorite donut place here in Philly ~ Beilers Donuts. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing these donuts are. You may have seen me post some pictures on Instagram of the different flavors that I’ve tried from there.  If you just take a look at it you’ll see quite a few pictures and I think they are pretty drool worthy! LOL. I’m always trying some different flavors but my other half sticks with the same flavor every single week. The Triple Chocolate Donut. It’s a chocolate donut, with chocolate frosting with chocolate chips. Wow. That’s a lot of chocolate! [Read more...]

Let’s talk about brownies. I don’t know about you, but I prefer brownies to be nice and fudgy. I like cake, but I don’t like cakey brownies. So I set out on a mission to find the Fudgiest Brownies on the planet and you know what? I think I found them! These brownies were so fudgy and SO easy to make. One bowl people. One bowl and a wooden spoon. That’s all it takes.  [Read more...]
