Autumn Cravings

Ever since I had a scoop of ice cream a few days ago that had pumpkin flavor and ginger snap cookie bits, which tasted exactly like pumpkin pie, I have had serious cravings for Fall flavors. I swear, it was the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted!

This morning, I am enjoying a cup of this Autumn Spice coffee, which has hints of cinnamon, cardamon and cloves. It is SO delicious! Perfect for a cool day. Now I’m off to find a can of pumpkin so I can bake pumpkin cookies. There seems to be a shortage of canned pumpkin around here because we’ve been to two grocery stores so far, and their canned pumpkin shelves were empty!

I am also looking forward to making a couple more hexagon needle books for my gift stash. Now I see why these little buggers are addicting!

Enjoy your Friday, my friends!

  1. I really want some of that ice cream…I love me some pumpkin, and I actually cheered the other day when I saw that Libby’s Pumpkin was back in stock in the supermarket!

  2. Have you ever tried making the Pioneer Woman Caramel Pumpkin Gingersnap Cheesecake? It is DELICIOUS! I made it for Thanksgiving a year or two ago and it was just amazing even for those of us who aren’t huge pumpkin flavor fans.

    Your little needlebooks are so adorable! It is amazing you have time to make them while still taking classes.

  3. Once you’ve baked your pumpkin cookies and brewed some of that coffee give me a holler and I’ll be straight over!

    Would even sit and sew a couple of those needle cases with you :0)

    Here’s to Autumn and all it’s delights xxxx

  4. Hey Terri!
    I live just minutes from Morton, IL, the Pumpkin Capitol of the World! We never have a shortage of canned pumpkin around here – let me know if you want me to send you some! I’m doing assorted of apple-cinnamon-walnut baking myself!

    1. Thanks for the offer, Lisa! I was lucky enough to find a large can of pumpkin at our local grocery store. Your baking sounds delicious too – enjoy! Terri

  5. I had a hard time finding pumpkin, too! I ended up buying a HUGE #10 can, as that is all I could find after searching 4 stores.

    Love your needle book 🙂

  6. I love anything with pumpkin in it. We ate at Olive Garden the other day and I was almost tempted to eat the Pumpkin Cheesecake. I told myself when I’m down 10lbs then I’m going to have a slice. Yum! I only have 2.2 lbs left to hit that mark. Yeah!! Your little needle case is so cute. That would be a cute gift idea for my sewing friends. Thanks for the link.

  7. I cannot possibly think of fall yet. It’s 97 degrees here. NINETY-SEVEN! When fall finally decides to roll around though, I’m all about apple cider-YUM!

  8. If I’m not mistaken the pumpkin shortage started last year due to lack of rain. Which they said it would be worse this year. I have not even thought of pumpkin yet. I know when I do I’ll be upset if I can’t get any. I guess I’ll start looking now. Thanks for the warning. I had totally forgot about it.

  9. Dearest terri, that coffeeeeee sounds wonderful! I would love love to have a cup too pleassee. 🙂 Fall is also one of my favorite….i love the rich and gorgeous colors of fall! Your hexagon needle book looks wonderful!! Such a fabulous idea. Have a lovely merry happy fall weekend and love to you!

  10. mmmm…I love pumpkin flavored things! I bet that coffee is divine! I typically go crazy for pumpkin flavored donuts…shhh…don’t tell anyone, I’m on a diet! I’ve been wanting to try Angela’s hexie needle book, yours looks great Terri 🙂

  11. I love the fall coffee flavors out now, the one you have sounds delicious. 🙂

    Your needle book turned out beautiful and I really, really like the mug rug. I keep seeing those all over the place. Is it from a book? I could really use one myself with all my coffee paraphernalia.

  12. Your autumn spice coffee sounds lovely – I enjoy baking with spices.

    I remember being amazed when we lived in the USA that pumpkin came in a can – something I had never seen before. Pumpkin is a well used vegetable in Australia but we have to cook it and mash it before it is added to cakes, scones, etc.
