I Love Fall

22 Aug

I realize it’s still August and it’s pretty hot right now (90 and humid).  But a girl can dream about Fall.  I love Fall and all that comes with it.  The leaves changing, the crisp air, apple picking, pumpkin carving … I could go on and on.  I think it’s just a magical time where everything is harvested before the winter and nature gives you one last beautiful glimpse of color before the stark white winter.

Fall also brings delicious treats like simmering pots of chili, caramel apples and pumpkin pie.  I am one of those girls that’s also a sucker for a Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Going to the pumpkin farm with that yummy drink in my hand is pure heaven.  What do you love about Fall?

All Things Apple

27 Sep

It’s officially fall and it’s the perfect time to pick apples.  We’ve also “picked” our favorite apple related products at The Stationery Studio to share with you (just in case you can’t get enough of the real thing!).

Picking apples is a great excuse to make caramel apples.  They also make great wedding and party favors, too!  These personalized boxes make it easy to gift!

Recipe: Low Calorie Pumpkin Custard Cups

16 Sep

Whenever the temperature drops, I cannot wait to make pumpkin pie.  The smell of cinnamon and pumpkin baking in the oven just switches my gears into fall mode.  I also love eating all that delicious pumpkin pie, but I really don’t want all the calories.  So I came up with a mish-mash of recipes that I have tried throughout the years that satisfies my pumpkin craving without the guilt.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute (like Egg Beaters)
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 2/3 cup Truvia (or any no calorie sweetner)
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 6-8 ramekins (depending on size) with nonstick cooking spray.

In a blender, start by blending the egg mixture and milk first and then add the remaining ingredients.

Pour into the ramekins.  I like to have the ramekins on a cookie sheet for ease of taking in and out of the oven.  Bake for approximately 35 – 40 minutes.  Let cool for 15 minutes.

Top with whipped cream  (this is where you can splurge a little!) and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice.  Let me know if you try these at home!  Enjoy.
