Pumpkin Spice Carrot Cake

Hubby bought me a food processor a few weeks ago and I am just now getting around to figuring out how it operates.  At first, it was very frustrating not having it seal correctly.  Now, it is a breeze to use, I don't know what I did different other than read the directions ~wink~ and love using it!  Yesterday, I decided to make a Pumpkin Spice Carrot Cake....using the food processor.  I wasn't happy with the outcome in the beginning since I ended up with a very wet egg and sugar mixture.  It was not at all what I envisioned, however, I decided to go forward with it anyway.  I'm so glad I did!  Though, I didn't know where I was going with it...pie or cake.  It turned out to be a little of both.  I have also made this cake using my stand mixer and it was tall, moist and wonderful.  My boys ate it all without icing!  Either way, you will love this!

Pumpkin Spice Dip with Maple Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Waffle Dippers

I have mentioned it before and I'll say it again...I do not like pumpkin pie.  Yes, I know what you are thinking and just imagine I may nbe the only person that doesn't like it!  They was always made by my precious Mama and Grandma every holiday.  A huge dollop of cream on top and my, oh my, dear Daddy was a happy man!  I on the other hand, never inherited the love of pumpkin pie.  I do love pumpkin bread, cookies, muffins and now, this dip.  Just don't give me a slice Mama's pumpkin pie or I'll have to hurt feeling and not eat it. Check out this recipe on The Great Eggo Waffle Off!

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

It’s Fall!  Hopefully, we will see a change in the weather, something other than rain and heat would be welcomed.  How is the weather in your part of the world?  Wishing you comfort and sunshine, wherever you are. 
I seem to think of using pumpkin when Fall is officially here and visual at the market.  Making me want to take them home to decorate, display and eat them.  I did buy a pie pumpkin a couple of days ago but ended up using canned pumpkin for this Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal.  This is the first time I have cooked oatmeal in the crock pot and very pleased I did.  It was like eating a Pumpkin Spice Muffin in a bowl.  Warm and soft and quite filling.  This is definitely a keeper and will be made often.
