Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M Cookies

It’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season!  Woo hoo!!

And since it’s latte season, of course all of the seasonal candies have to follow suit.

This year M&Ms joined the pumpkin spice party.

I was so excited about these, imagining the creamy pumpkin spice flavor of the pumpkin spice kisses (and subsequent cookies) and then…meh.

I tried a handful of the M&Ms and then reached back and studied the bag to be sure I had the new pumpkin spice M&Ms and not just the regular milk chocolate ones!  After sitting and concentrating for a loooong time, I did notice a very vague cinnamon aftertaste, but it was really inconsequential.  Had I not know these were supposed to taste like pumpkin spice, I don’t think I would ever have noticed it.

However, despite the huge M&M disappointment, this cookies were absolutely fantastic!  The chocolatiness of the M&Ms perfectly complemented the spicy cookie…and a dash of espresso powder didn’t hurt either.

I sent these along with my husband and his aerobatic team and he told me that they were literally gone in 5 minutes.  These were also dubbed “the best cookies yet.”

Wow!  Those are some glowing remarks!

So if you need a spicy latte pick me up, and want to make all sorts of new friends, I suggest making these cookies asap!

Jalapeno Popper Pasta

As I was perusing the cream cheeses at the grocery store recently, I happened upon Spicy Jalapeno Cream cheese.

I immediately threw it in my cart & wanted to make Jalapeno Popper Pasta!

This most certainly did not disappoint!

It was all kinds of jalapeno popper goodness bundled up as a main dish!

It was spicy and delicious (perhaps a bit too spicy for the little dudes) and I can’t wait to make it again!

Sausage & Potato Skillet

Don’t you love quick, easy meals?  I’m loving them even more now that my Kindergartener has soccer practice on the same night that I teach Zumba!  Talk about busy Mondays!

Split Pea Soup with Sweet Potato Hash

As the leaves begin to turn as fall is on the horizon, it’s time to break out those warm, comforting soups again.

Split pea soup can be a little disconcerting, because it is green.  It is very green and a little off putting.  But the flavors are so amazing!

There’s a punch of garlic, and a smoothness from parmesan cheese.  And let’s not forget a bit of texture in the form of sweet potatoes, and smoky, crisp bacon!  This is the perfect to soup to welcome fall!
