Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust

And the pumpkin recipes continue into November! This is actually my second attempt at cheesecake. The first results were amazing so I was expecting no less with this pumpkin cheesecake. I was originally going to make a swirl but.... I can be honest here right? I FU&^%D it up. Whatever. So I layered it and it actually came out really great! And if you have never made a gingersnap crust before. DO IT. It gives the cheesecake such a great flavor.

Stovetop Mac & Cheese

I know. I have a mac & cheese obsession. I admit it. I have at least done ten mac & cheese recipes on the blog it has its own category on my recipes page! Speaking of mac & cheese is that I prefer it pre-baking. I like it super creamy like just off the stove top. If you are with me then this recipe is for you. And yes, if you like baking mac and cheese with bread crumbs you can do that too!

Creamy Green Veggie Enchilladas

OMG! Hello my new favorite Mexican dish. I have a love/hate relationship with Mexican food. They are usually full of cheese, giant tortillas and are usually fried. Great while you are eating it, after however you have a burrito that weighs five pounds in your belly. How about instead you make the Mexican food at home, control the ingredients and make them however low in fat you prefer. Well, look no further for a banging recipe.

Pumpkin Spiced Nuts

Ahhhhh Fall. Ahhhhh pumpkin. I love it all. I love when I find out making recipes at home is much cheaper than buying them at the grocery store. For some reason nuts are always so expensive when you purchase them in the grocery. I swear you pay $5 for a canister and they are gone in a day! Other pluses about DIYing your own recipes are you get to control the ingredients ( no preservatives or additives you can't pronounce) and you can make different flavors... like... I don't know... PUMPKIN SPICE! Yep, get excited.

Pumpkin Streusel Bread

May I start by saying... what bread with a rich streusel topping is not amazing?True. Second, true to my first statement, this bread is amazing. First, it has that amazing fall flavor with pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Secondly, you should be thrilled this recipe makes two full loaves of bread because one will go quickly.
