Whew! I have been one busy girl!

There is just so much of me to go around.

Taking care of a sick child, the household, Pint Sized Baker stuff, recipes for here, family plans, working out, COOKING all of my meals. It has been a crazy September. It’s going to be a crazy October as well, so I may as well get used to it.  Or maybe I need to re-prioritize a few things.

I’ve been very good with cooking all of my meals, since I’ve been doing my best to eat Paleo / All Natural Foods. Sometimes I just wish I could throw on a pot of boiling water and enjoy a huge bowl of pasta and butter. Dinner was much simpler a few weeks ago.

Life was also easier when I could sleep in most days during the summer. Now, it’s back to school in the mornings followed by working out.

It was a special treat the day I made this coffee. Honestly, I’m not a fan of the Starbuck’s Pumpkin Latte (sorry). Maybe it’s the syrup that they use… I don’t know. I just know that it wasn’t for me. But I was so happy to try this recipe and I really liked the pumpkin flavor in it. It may have had to do with the fact that I hadn’t had any sweets like this for a few weeks…

Pumpkin Spice Coffee and a Pumpkin Creme Brulee for dessert. The perfect autumn pairing. from #dietersdownfall.comThis Pumpkin Spiced Coffee would be great for an after dinner coffee. When we have guests over, I feel so grown up to offer coffee to them. It may seem a bit old fashion, but I get a kick out of it.

To make it a bit easier on yourself, simply prepare the pumpkin milk in advance and leave it in the fridge. Then heat it up while you make your coffee. Depending on the size of your coffee cups or mugs, you’ll have maybe 4 – 6 servings.
