When the Pumpkin Spice craze first started I really didn’t jump on the band wagon. I (without having any idea) assumed I wouldn’t like it and was totally against liking something just because everyone else did. Fast forward a year or two when I finally gave in and ordered a pumpkin spice latte instead of my typical order during a conference I was attending in Houston… well, let’s just say I have never looked back!
Pumpkin spice has become the smell of fall for me. Kind of like what I think when I smell spruce, evergreen and especially pine trees… I am immediately reminded of Christmas. Speaking of Christmas (if you know me at all, you knew I couldn’t get through a holiday related post without bringing up Christmas!), I love decorating the house for the holiday season and this year in particular am beyond excited to decorate our new home! But first, Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice.
I have been pinning away getting ready for fall but have also taken a few recipes as inspiration from fellow bloggers to help get the creative juices flowing (and my tummy rumbling!).
These muffins are not exactly pumpkin spice, but they sure do look nice…

Not only do these pumpkin muffins looks delicious, they keep in the freezer up to 6 months!

And, one from me that takes me back to that first Pumpkin Spice experience in Houston, TX. I told you about the latte, but I didn’t tell you about the scone I tried the next day. It was absolutely to die for! When I found this copycat recipe, made scones (for the first time) and they were just as good I knew I had to share it with all of you. So here it is:

Happy baking, decorating & pinning!
