White Chocolate Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Food September 26, 2016

White Chocolate Pumpkin Spiced Latte

One of my most cherished Autumn experiences that I look forward to every year is indulging in the world of pumpkin spice. This year, I decided to bring home the flavour and create my own White Chocolate Pumpkin Spiced Latte beverage. My scrumptious latte recipe is creamy, sweet, and spiced all in one. It makes a perfect addition to any cold morning or meal, and can even be served on its own as a dessert.

Perhaps the best aspect of this recipe is that you can adjust it based on what you’re seeking in the moment. You can increase or decrease the chocolate, change the type you use (such as to milk chocolate or dark chocolate), and add any spice you desire, such as nutmeg or cinnamon. It is an incredible recipe and I have fallen completely in love with it. After my first taste, it was added to my “favourites” section in my home cook book. It’s just that good.

Ingredients:

-1 c. Milk (I used 2% and it made a deliciously creamy latte)
-1/2 c. Strong Brewed Coffee (you can use decaf or tea, too)
-1 tbsp. White Chocolate Chips
-1 tbsp Pumpkin Puree
-1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
-1/4 tsp Vanilla
-A dash of cinnamon (or a cinnamon stick)
-A few extra chocolate chips for garnish
-Whip Cream

White Chocolate Pumpkin Spiced Latte

In a small sauce pan, warm the milk, coffee, white chocolate chips, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice. I used medium heat, and lowered it before it started to boil. Consistently stir your mixture so it doesn’t curdle or burn. When everything is melted together and well blended, turn off the heat and stir in your vanilla. Pour your latte into cups, and top with whip cream. Use cinnamon and some chocolate chips as garnish. Enjoy!

DIY Halloween Decor You Can Enjoy All Season

Crafts September 26, 2016

Halloween is probably my favourite holiday out of all of them. Theres something so wonderful about the diversity in decor, from cute to downright frightening. The one downside to Halloween is its only one day out of the entire year! Rather than waiting all the way until the middle of October to decorate, I’ve decided this year I’m going to make some decorations that are cute and appropriate to be enjoyed for the entire season.

Perhaps the most neutral Halloween symbol that can also be enjoyed all Autumn long is a pumpkin. While black cats, vampires, witches and ghosts are all incredible, they simply don’t make sense to showcase them from September 22nd all the way until its time to decorate for Christmas (or Winter if you don’t celebrate Christmas in your home!)

To help you bring the Halloween beauty to your home early this year, I’ve collected my three favourite pumpkin-inspired decorations for you to make. They are simple, adorable, and can definitely pass all season long.

1. Make a pumpkin “snow” man.

Take two pumpkins (one small, one medium) and make them into jack-o-lanterns. Instead of replacing the top on the medium pumpkin, fit the small pumpkin there. Decorate with a scarf (or twine), a hat, and anything else you desire (such as twig arms, a corn cob pipe, etc.)

2. Crochet Some Mini Pumpkins.

You can find tutorials all over google for festive crochet and knitting patterns. Find yourself some colourful yarn, and a crochet hook, and create as many (or as few) pumpkins as you desire! These can be decor on their own, or added to a large item, such as a center piece or vase, to make them extra enjoyable.

3. Fancy pumpkin decor.

Collect a pumpkin in any size you desire, fake or real. Mist it with fake snow spray you can purchase in any craft store and decorate it with a couple of fake leaves. You could make these in a few different sizes and arrange them on a side table, as a center piece, or even on the front patio.
