Don’t put those pumpkins away, yet. These Fall Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting Pumpkins will steal the show at your potluck dinner or on the Thanksgiving Dessert Table.

I posted these cute little cupcakes on my blogging buddy’s website, Summer Scraps, a few weeks ago and want to make sure I share it with you in time for Thanksgiving.

I mean really!  Who said Halloween should have all the fun?  These cream cheese frosting pumpkins are adorable!  I take them to just about every fall activity or holiday party.  They are fast, easy and (let’s face it) cute! The stem is made from a pretzel stick and the leaf is from a sprig of mint.  You can reserve a little icing (before coloring it orange) and add green food coloring to pip little leaves if you woould rather have icing leaves.  Just make sure that the stems and leaves you use are edible!

Southwest Meatball Soup Recipe

by Sandy on November 12, 2014

I can’t help it.  Every time I think of the word “meatball” I picture Adam Sandler and Chris Farley dancing around in my head to the Lunch Lady Song.  My Southwest Meatball Soup Recipe (better known as albondigas) makes a fun family dinner and you won’t even have to wear a hair net!

Many of you know that Donna and I are in the middle of developing recipes for a few super secret, 007 type projects that we will be able to announce soon.  In the mean time, I have been highlighting some of our recipes that have been shared on our friend’s websites and throwing in a few giveaways just for fun.

Today, because I am sitting at Donna’s house in Utah with actual snowflakes blowing around on her deck, I want to share my Mexican Meatball Soup Recipe that I posted over at Mother’s Niche.  I know!  Actual snowflakes!  It was 101 degrees when I left Phoenix yesterday!  So, I guess Fall is not a myth… Fall really does happen!

Chipotle Cinnamon Brownies

by Candi Elm on October 22, 2014

I’m Candi from A Day in Candiland, and I would like to thank Sandra for letting me visit with her readers today and show you my chipotle cinnamon brownies as part of my Easy Brownie Recipes. I was at a party a few years back and the food was prepared by different dessert vendors. So naturally, I had to stop my each table and taste their treasures.

Chipotle Cinnamon Brownies

I fell in love with these chipotle brownies from one of the sweet ladies there. Ever since that night I wanted to try to make them. They had just a little kick at the end of each bite. The first time I made them I used a different type of chili powder and it just wasn’t the same. Once I got the ground chipotle chile pepper, I knew it was the one. Also, adding some cinnamon, gave it a nice flavor. I thought this recipe would be great to try with Sandra’s readers since they like the Southwest flare.  [click to read more…]
