Skinny No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

homemade pumpkin pie spice 022

Remember that cannoli dip I made last night? Well, I didn't feel like dipping anymore and I thought that would be a great base for a no-bake cheesecake. I ended up pulverizing a couple of graham crackers for the crust and poured the rest of the cannoli dip on top of the graham cracker crust. Voila, it's like a two-fer recipe. What a great idea, cause it turned out great. It's best to put this in the freezer for a bit so it firms up before cutting. Today, I noticed at the grocery store, that ...

Pumpkin Cannoli Dip

pumpkin canolli dip 049

Is anybody sick of pumpkin yet? It's everywhere! I surf a lot of food blogs and that is all I see.  That is ok, because pumpkin is a magical vegetable and tastes good in just about anything that is baked. I have yet to find a savory pumpkin dish that I like. I've tried a few pasta recipes with pumpkin in it, and did not like it at all. If anybody has any they are willing to share please feel free to do so. This post was inspired by Buzzfeed. I saw their article for ricotta cheese recipes ...

Chocolate-Caramel Monkey Bread

chocolate caramel monkey bread 010

  Tomorrow is a pot luck. I have a love/hate relationship with potlucks. Everything looks so good to eat and I want to eat it all.  I don't want to eat everything cause I'm trying to watch my weight. I also like to bring something to potlucks. Most of the time I will bring something in a crock pot, but this time I'm going to bring some Monkey Bread. It gives me a chance to bake something without reducing the calories in the original recipe in order for it to be on the lighter side. Good e ...

This week has been so busy! On Thursday, my brother and his wife were up here for the funeral and on Friday I was out of town all day. I haven't had much time to cook anything at all. The Fall season is approaching really fast. I went looking at all my past pumpkin recipes on this blog, and noticed they needed major picture updating. Like these pumpkin cinnamon rolls. You can see the original pic here on this link. Pretty terrible pictures, but the new pics make me feel like I've come a long ...

Cheese and Saugsage Calzones

cheese and sasuage calzones 036

Cheese and Sausage Calzones are the perfect after school snack or even for a football game party. I like to order Pizza Hut's calzones from time to time. It makes me feel less guilty ordering those instead of ordering a whole entire pizza just for myself. I'm a light eater, and usually, I can just eat half a calzone and I'll save the other half for the next day. Calzones are just stuffed pizzas without the sauce. However, a lot of people like to dip their calzones in marinara sauce or pizza ...
