Enjoy the taste of pumpkin pie in a smoothie with just 5 ingredients! I’m in the process of moving (again) so I’ve made it a personal goal to use as many items in the pantry as possible so there isn’t as much to pack. Every little bit counts, right?!

So this was truly an adventure to cook with the real deal! While this recipe

Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

With Thanksgiving less than one week away, I finally popped open a can of pumpkin to make a tasty holiday treat. After some deliberation, I decided on Pumpkin Cake with Homemade Cheese Cream Frosting. What a heavenly combo….pumpkin and cream cheese.
