Rich and Gooey Pumpkin French Toast

Okay everyone, this pumpkin French toast tasted like pumpkin pie filling and I am OBSESSED. It was rich, gooey, crunchy, and exactly what we needed on a beautiful fall day. This french toast bake was the star of our Halloween themed brunch food and I already want to make it again! I found the recipe at foodnetwork.com, so thank you Marcela Valladolid! My recommendation is to make it in a disposable tin. It makes for quick cleanup after the guests leave. Which is perfect because now it’s your time to relax after all the hard work you put in cooking a delicious meal.

Pumpkin Signs

Every morning I take our small puppy outside for a walk. Lately those early morning walks start with cold air filling my lungs and a slight chill to my fingertips. Fall is right on the cusp and I am embracing every moment. I am so excited to share the latest project here on the blog! This is a project where we knew what we wanted the base to look like but not necessarily how to finish it. This did give the perfect opportunity for another two take creation!

DIY Summer Wreaths

Summer colors are so exciting to work with when crafting. Between the brilliant greens and the bright shades, it’s almost hard to pick what direction of a color scheme to go with! We went with two different takes of this summer wreath. One focused on the greens while the other embraced the vibrant colors of the season.  We went a little crazy with the florals/greens for these wreaths and love how they turned out.

Gingerbread Love

Whoever created gingerbread is a genius! Thankfully for everyone on this blog, my other passion is history so I went on a quick research adventure to learn more about the spiced treat (While of course snacking on some gingerbread of my own). Although ginger originates in Asia, most of the credit to today’s popularized “gingerbread” flavors seems to be by the Europeans in the middle ages. Elizabeth I is mostly credited with decorating cookies into “gingerbread men” after having some made that resembled guests. Even better, George Washington’s mother, served gingerbread to the Marquis de Lafayette and the confection was passed down for generations in the family (I recently finished Washington by Ron Chernow so this fact made me quite excited to learn).
