13 Days of Creepmas: Ginger-dead Cookies

Tis the season for sweet treats – and what’s sweeter than baking a warm, spicey ginger bread cookie with a sinister twist? Today, to celebrate Creepmas with you, I’m sharing a delicious and easy ginger-dead cookie recipe. What’s so fun about them is you can decorate as creepy as you like! My piping skills are very amateur (which you can tell by the photos), but the sloppiness gives them some character!

I also cut out different shapes to make an evil Santa Claus and spooky snowman. Keep reading for the recipe and some decorating inspiration:

My 2018 Monster Mash Bash!

Monster Mash Bash

This year’s Monster Mash Bash was a hit and a scary good time was had by all! I appreciated everyone’s compliments towards my creepy castle – some guests assumed it was just to liven up the party but I had to divulge, this creepy castle gets creeped out on Sept. 1 every year. The only way I know to enjoy Halloween decor and hoarding habits is to display it sooner and longer!

Keep reading to see some photos of my guests and their costumes and to get some inspiration for your upcoming or next Halloween shindig.

Creepy Crawly Spider Cookies

 

I’m getting excited for my Monster Mash Bash Halloween party happening on October 20! So much so, that I’m beginning to make ghoulish treats for all of my friends to enjoy. Nothing puts a smile on your face than some treats with a little spooky personality to them.

The only issue I run into is that working 40 hours a week can make you feel less than enthusiastic about whipping up something homemade.ย  That’s why I want to share this easy and quick and frightfully festive spider cookie recipe with you! It’s perfect to put together on a weeknight or when you’re running out of time to make something spooktacular to treat and delight your pals.

Simple Pumpkin Blended Coffee

blended pkin coffee

I am not a fan of the typical store bought pumpkin spice coffee – but I have created a pumpkin blended coffee that I do enjoy! At times, the “pumpkin spice” essence in coffee leaves a bit of a chemical after taste (to me at least) so I blend my coffee with real pumpkin, brown sugar and cinnamon for a sweet, creamy pumpkin treat.

I am terrible at providing accurate measurements for this recipe (it was an “eyeballing it’ creation), so please use it as an inspiration for creating your own unique blended pumpkin coffee and adjust to your liking! Read more below to see how I make mine:

Pumpkin Bread Recipe (Vegan!)

pumpkin bread recipe

I have made this recipe multiple times since my grandma shared this recipe with me around Thanksgiving last year. It is my favorite baked pumpkin treat (PS – it is also VEGAN!)! It’s so easy to make PLUS it makes two loaves which makes it perfect to bring to family gatherings in the fall or to the office (I’ve brought it to both!). I’ll also let you in on a secret – it makes a MEAN french toast! I made some last fall for my husband with some chopped pecans on top and he approved – which he is quite the food critic, so when he approves, I’m happy!

Check out the recipe below: Continue reading “Pumpkin Bread Recipe (Vegan!)”

Boo-Berry Donuts Recipe

Fresh blueberries can still be found in the grocery store (however I use frozen blueberries in this recipe most of the time since I always have them on hand for smoothies!) which makes this a perfect treat for September! If you’re not a pumpkin person, I recommend you whip up a batch of these homemade donuts which really taste great for any season! This is one of my favorite homemade baked donut recipes since it’s sweet, tart, with a hint of fall flavor because I add in some cinnamon for an extra kick.
