Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Muffins… 3 Ingredients!

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Muffins

It’s finally time to “fall” into pumpkin season. ;) (bad joke, bad joke) These pumpkin spice muffins are sooooo good and sooooo simple! Today the weather is really gross out. It’s very cold and rainy and, therefore, I’m boycotting outside. :) Instead, I decided to cozy up in a big sweater, brew some coffee, and bake some pumpkin goodies! My mom used to make these, and once I left for college, I stole her recipe because I can’t get enough of these. Every time I make them, I am harassed asked for the recipe, and everyone is SO surprised how simple it is. THEY’RE ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS! It doesn’t get much easier and cost efficient than that!

Both recipes were really easy and so so so yummy. I’ll start with the Caramelized Cinnamon Butternut Squash: You need: *½ of a butternut squash* drizzle of extra…

Game Day Tri-Apple “Nachos”

I love all things football. That’s one of the reasons that fall is my favorite season! Yesterday, we had an away game, so all our friends got together to watch the game at home. Instead of having only typical tailgating foods, I wanted to provide some healthy options, as well. These apple “nachos” were a huge hit. They were literally the first dish gone! They are so simple to make, and only need three ingredients! For a big platter of apple nachos, you need: *5 apples (I used three types for flavor variety- green, red, and pink lady) *One big dark chocolate bar *½ cup crushed up unsalted peanuts* I prefer milk chocolate, but dark chocolate is a lot better for you, health-wise. Mixed with the peanuts and sweetness of the apples, I enjoyed…
