I always see scones available at coffee shops and random bakeries. And I have to admit that sometimes I like them (raspberry and cranberry being my favorite), but other times I think they just taste hard and dry. With October coming around, I figured it was only right to make pumpkin scones and I was pleasantly surprised. They are soft and moist. Suddenly, I think I’ve been eating bad scones my whole life! And my world is just opening up. Now I have to start making all different types of scones to experiment! Try this lovely pumpkin recipe.
As I’ve said a million times, October is my favorite month. I owe part of that to Starbucks. I’m not that big into coffee, instead I’m much more of a tea type of gal. But I do treat myself to the occasional frappuccino when I’m feeling wild, or in October a pumpkin spiced latte. However, I recently walked into my Starbucks and asked if they could make me a pumpkin frappuccino. To my delight it was possible and was just as tasty as I had dreamed. I was hooked. I wanted them every day. But the steep price of Starbucks just isn’t practical. So I decided to make my own, and they came out delicious!
So I’ve been a bad baker. I’ve had my KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment for months and months. And I haven’t made any ice cream. I didn’t realize how bad I was, until my friend pointed it out. I have to admit, I think I was a little afraid of ice cream. In my mind, it just sounds scary and a bit overwhelming. Even sometimes looking at the recipes can be a bit intimidating. But let me tell you investing in the ice cream maker may have been the best and worst decision I ever made. Great, because I see it isn’t that hard and I do love ice cream. But bad because I LOVE ice cream. Ughh it’s such a hard life I live!! =)
One of my favorite types of ice cream is pumpkin ice cream. First, because it’s plain delicious. Secondly, because I come from what may be the pumpkin capital of America. And lastly, I think I crave it so much because really I can only get it in September and October. Not anymore! Keep reading for this yummy recipe.
