THIS POST CONTAINS DOG PHOTOS! I thought that might get your attention. My dog, Gizmo, has a birthday coming up at the end of the month. I love to celebrate his birthday by spoiling him with special birthday treats, most often homemade cupcakes, which I like to refer to as pupcakes! There are so many different dog-friendly cupcakes (though always check with your vet before giving your dog people-foods) and my dogs like them all. This particular recipe is for Peanut Butter Pumpkin Sweet Potato Pupcakes.Continue Reading
We’re right in the midst of the chaos that is the holiday season! It is such a fun time of year, but I always feel like I’m falling behind on everything! Which is why I am here, in December, after you’re probably all burnt out on pumpkin pie, to bring you a brand new pumpkin pie recipe!

Each of these women have impacted my life in different ways, and seeing them all come together in one panel was a truly amazing experience.
You wouldn’t know it from this heat, but fall is almost here! Fall is my favorite time of year. And to be honest, (unpopular opinion coming…) I’m not a fan of the pumpkin stuff. I don’t drink the PSLs, I don’t eat pumpkin pie, I just really don’t care for pumpkin anything. But Shipyard Pumpkinhead is a super popular fall beer here in Boston. And it’s served in a glass with a cinnamon sugar rim.
