So lately my blog has taken a delicious turn into pumpkin land.  As I giddily skip into its yummy paradise I’ve left my sad little husband behind.  You see, my husband HATES pumpkin flavored anything.  When Monday rolls around and he eagerly asks what I’m making for the blog (Monday is my bake like crazy, non-stop oven burning, chocolate melting, caramel drizzling day) and I reply,

“…something pumpkin.”

I can actually see the happiness leave his eyes.

Say what you want about Starbucks and their “stale” coffee.  Yes, I’m talking to coffee snobs everywhere!  You have to admit they know the way to every white girl’s heart during Fall.  I’m more of a classic Mocha girl myself, but I love the first sight of their magical chalkboard sign exclaiming, “The Pumpkin Spice Latte is here!”  It lets me know that Fall has officially arrived.  I’ve taken one of my favorite Starbucks drinks and made them into brownies!
