For the past few years, Josh and try and take one vacation a year. We spend a lot of time dreaming about where we’re gonna go to next. 2019 is Paris (hopefully!) neither of us have been, so we can’t wait!
Every year we try and make sure we have enough points so our flights or hotel are covered. This makes the expense of the vacation itself a whole lot more manageable. That’s why I’m super excited to be teaming up with American Express and their new Gold Card to share with you how to earn points for doing the things you love!
Hello, you pie-loving humans. I’m here with another pie. This one is slightly different.
A: Because you make it in a tart pan (I used a circle one would do just fine or if you’re like this is annoying just use a regular 9-inch pie dish, you can do that, too!) B: There aren’t a ton of spices in this. Like, barely at all. C: Hello, butterscotch. It’s all about pumpkin and butterscotch and their sweet and caramel-y-like union.
This recipe starts with sweet butterscotch. A few years ago I was very confused as to what the difference was between butterscotch vs. caramel.
It’s this easy: butterscotch is made with brown sugar, where caramel is made with white sugar.
That’s it. I like my butterscotch not burnt or taken too far but just right.
If you hate making pie crust, this is super easy. It’s a gingersnap crust taken from the No-Bake Pumpkin Pie from The Year of Cozy. I steal from myself!
Pumpkin everything. Pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin every which way.
That is the style of October, amirite? I’ve been thinking a lot about pumpkin these days, and desserts. I’m pretty sure it’s my bodily reaction to want more dessert and soup once the weather dips below 65. It’s all nature’s game plan.
We’re hurling toward November. How did this happen? I want October back! This week includes meeting some deadlines, figuring out (finally!) want Amelia is going to be for Halloween (maybe a banana?), and more recipe brainstorming. There’s a holiday at the end of this month and I need to be prepared so you can all be prepared, you dig?
