The most hyped Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies on the Internet right now…

….

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung-Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
I know that there are trends in every section of the internet whether it is beauty, home decor or fashion but the latest and most written trend I have seen in the last two weeks was about these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. A bunch full of bloggers recreated the recipe and shared it on their blog and that made me curious and as a lover of cookies and everything pumpkin I had to try it. You can find the original recipe here.

I didn´t change a single ingredient cause I was to excited how these would taste and guys they are delicious. To be honest they don´t have the usual cookie consistency. The dough is more like from a cake in the end. So I wouldn´t take away a few minutes from their baking time cause they stay soft. 

But that doesn´t hurt at all does it?! I made the second batch only three days after and we still love them. Even my mom eats them and she isn´t a friend of either sugar or pumpkin.

So maybe I could give you an impetus to make a batch of delicious cookies for your weekend treat. They are seriously so so good.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Food Friday – homemade apple cider for fall festivities…

….
Happy Friday you guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung-Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
as fall is my favorite season in terms of weather, clothing and food on weekends you can find me glued to my kitchen counter and trying out new recipes. I don´t care if it is a hearty dish, a sweet treat or even a drink.
So since there isn´t any hot apple cider available in Germany I made my own. 
So here is what you need:
– 12 apples – obviously (I mixed sweet and sour)
– 2 oranges
– cinnamon 
– cloves grounded 
– sugar 
– water
– whiskey or bourbon if you like
How-to:
– peel and cut the apples and put into a huge pot
– peel and cut your orange and add to the pot
– add the spices and the sugar to your fruit in the pot

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1539238219385?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’); – cover with water
– let it cook for a short time and then let it simmer at a medium temperature for about two hours
– be sure to have a look and stir from time to time
– puree everything in your pot and let it simmer for another 45 minutes
– serve hot with a stick of cinnamon (and additional a shot of whiskey or bourbon)


I am going to serve this as an aperitif for our Thanksgiving dinner. It is the perfect fall drink.


As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links/Markennennung-not sponsored)
I have such a sweet treat for you today you are going to love. Simple and delicious. That is what we love isn´t it?

Preparing a whole dinner is enough work, though so it is very nice to have a low maintenance dessert which can´t go wrong.
I decided to make an apple crumble as dessert for our Thanksgivinig dinner so I found lots of different recipes, tried some and mixed the best of everything togehter into one super apple crumble dish.
 In fact the hardest part is to peel and cut the apples. See how easy is this???

 What you need:

– 6 apples (I took some from our garden which where a little bit more on the sour side)
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1 tablespoon flour

– peel the apples and cut into small pieces
– put the sugar, cinnamon and flour with the apples into a bowl and mix together
– then pour the mixture into a oven safe bowl

So let´s work on the crumble…

– 1 cup of oatmeals
– 1 cup of flour
– 1 cup brown sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
 – 1/2 cup of melted butter


– mix all the ingredients together and spread on top of your apple mixture


– but the bowl into the preheated oven on about 180° degrees for 45 minutes


– serve warm and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream


This really is so so so delicious we ate it within two days.

My top 3 pumpkin recipes for fall/winter – super easy…..

(Pumpkin bread)

…..

Hi guys, 
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
today I am rounding up my 3 favorite recipes, including pumpkin I have found all over the internet. I have tried oh so many but these are the ones we love and I am making over and over again. Of course you could cook/bake them for Winter too. Pumpkin bread for example would be great to make for Thanksgiving or to bring to a Thanksgiving festivity as a gift.
#1 Pumpkin bread

 3,5 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil (I like taking olive oil)
2/3 cups water
3 eggs
2 tablespoons baking soda
1,5 tablesoons salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
 1 tablespoon nutmeg

stir everything together and bake for 1 hour for about 170 degress/ the dough serves two baking pans 

#2 Pumpkin spice cake with cinnamon bourbon buttercream frosting

you can view the recipe here – it is from Mara´s blog called M Loves M

#3 Pumpkin casserole with potatoes and minced meat

1 pound minced meat
1 small pumpkin hokaido
1 pound potatoes
1 leek
cheese
salt, pepper, nutmeg

I shredded the pumpkin and the potoates in my kitchen mashine
pre-cook the meat in a skillet first 


put everything together
garnish with salt, pepper and nutmeg and lots of cheese on top


cook for about 45 minutes with 175° degrees until potatoes and pumpkin are cooked

These are my absolute favorite things to cook/bake right now, despite the pumpkin spice latte. I have posted a recipe last year. You can view it here.

In this way I am ending my fall posts and going straight into winter which makes sense these days. I am alerady preparing for Christmas. Here is a peek into my kitchen and it only has about 4 ° every day so wearing warm winter clothing is more than appropriate.  

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
