Can you believe Thanksgiving is in two weeks? I can’t either. A lot of people are already thinking about what they will be gobbling up that day and are planning their family traditions and recipes. We have many amazing recipes that we will share, leading up to Thanksgiving, so let’s start with a fantastic dessert. When I came across these Pumpkin Pie Pops on an amazing website, Pint Sized Baker, I had to try them. I am a huge fan of pumpkin pie and this recipe looked unbelievable. WOW! These pops were fabulous! If you enjoy pumpkin pie, you will want to make them immediately, and then again on Thanksgiving! The main ingredients are in the stores for a limited amount of time, so stock up! Thank you so much Pint Sized Baker for sharing this delicious recipe!
I couldn’t wait until Thanksgiving to see what these Pumpkin Pie Pops were all about, so I made them for our Halloween block party! Halloween was a little different than planned this year, and it was a rather hectic day. My 4 year old was terribly sick with pneumonia and it was not the fun experience she was looking forward to. I took her to the doctor on Halloween morning, for the second time that week, and that is when they discovered she had pneumonia. She started antibiotics that day, but she was still feeling awful that night. She fell asleep before trick or treating and made it out for only a short while. Here is a picture of my little sleeping princess.
She did have some smiles and fun, but unfortunately, it was short-lived and it was just too much for her. It was really sad to see her so sick, especially on a super fun night for kids, but I am glad she got out for a little while. Here she is with her brother, Harry Potter, having a good time! Trick or Treat!
Was it really only last week that the kids were in their amazing costumes and running from house to house for some yummy treats? Even though Halloween day took some unexpected turns, my daughter tried to rest and sleep a lot, so I managed to make these amazing Pumpkin Pie Pops, a tasty homemade salsa, and incredible Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers (seen here). The Pumpkin Pie Pops had the most wonderful pumpkin pie flavor and it was really hard to not pick up another one. I made a big batch for our Halloween block party and they were a huge hit, with both the kids and adults. They disappeared so fast (so I am glad I kept a few at home for the next day). Not only are Pumpkin Pie Pops a fantastic dessert, but they are super easy to make.
