This week we have been preparing for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party but outside it isn’t feeling like Fall yet. I decided that nothing says Fall in Florida like faking it with a pumpkin recipe. I was thinking about Pumpkin Pie but I felt like I needed something new and different. That is why I created this pumpkin pie cake crock pot recipe. It’s a combination of the deliciousness of pumpkin pie with the texture of a moist cake. I’m sure you will enjoy it. I know we did.
My daughter has been asking to spend an entire day with her best friend watching Stranger Things. With her birthday passing, we decided to have a Stranger Thing watch party for them. Many of these ideas are simple but so fun! It’s time to make a supply run and set up your own Stranger Things watch party.

I have been working on so many savory recipes for the instant pot I wanted to try out something sweet. I put together this recipe for an instant pot cinnamon apple topping to go with some vanilla ice cream. It is perfect as a topping but also works well mashed up as an applesauce. We love to store it in jars and warm it up when we decide to have ice cream. It’s also a great addition to oatmeal.
