How To Make The Perfect Pumpkin Martini

pumpkin martini

The perfect pumpkin martini is sweet, creamy, and flavorful. It’s made with real pumpkin purée and pumpkin pie spice—and it’s pure autumnal bliss. It’s also a delicious way to ring in the season.

The pumpkin martini is a delicious cocktail that is perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any fall gathering.

What you’ll need for this cocktail:

Martini Glasses

Vodka (flavored caramel or vanilla is best)

Heavy cream

Pure maple syrup

Canned pumpkin puree

Pumpkin pie spice

Vanilla extract

Graham crackers 

Cinnamon sticks

To make your very own pumpkin martini at home, follow these simple steps:

  1. Using two saucers, add crushed graham crackers to one and maple syrup to the other.
  2. Next, rim your glass in the maple syrup, then graham crackers well.
  3. Add vodka, heavy cream, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract to a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.
  4. Shake vigorously until well chilled, about 30 seconds to 1 minute (your hands will get cold!).
  5. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with whipped cream, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon stick (optional).

But what if you don’t like pumpkin? Or, if you do like it, how can you make this seasonal cocktail even better? We’ve got the perfect solution: substitute apple cider for the pumpkin purée and top it with an apple slice.

It’s important to note that if you don’t drink alcohol, you can still enjoy this drink! To make it alcohol-free, use non-alcoholic vanilla syrup instead of vodka. This will give it the same flavor without the buzz.

We hope that this guide will help you make and enjoy your very own pumpkin martini in time for Halloween. If you try it out, be sure to send us a pic of how it turned out. We would love to feature your creations! Be Well-Omniley

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cookies from Cake Mix

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cookies from Cake Mix

Who doesn’t love a good pumpkin recipe? But let’s be honest, sometimes all the work involved with pumpkin bakes can get a little daunting. And by daunting, I mean killing any desire you might have to actually make something that includes those original orange gourds of fall. That’s when these salted caramel pumpkin cookies come in to save the day!

pumpkin cookies

These cookies are super easy to make, but they taste like you spent hours in your kitchen slaving over a hot stove. The caramel bits are rich and buttery, and the pumpkin puree gives them just the right amount of sweetness without being cloying. And let’s not forget about that salted caramel topping!

You only need 5 ingredients:

Spice Cake Mix

Pumpkin Puree

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Caramel Bits

Salted Caramel Frosting

The cookies are so easy to make. All you need is a super moist Spice Cake Mix. This recipe makes about 18 cookies, but you can easily double it. I would suggest storing these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or freezing them for up to 3 months.

If you’re looking for a fall dessert that’s out of the box, give these salted caramel pumpkin cookies a try. The taste and the textures will surprise you, and the process is surprisingly simple.

Easy Buttermilk Pumpkin Biscuits

Easy Buttermilk Pumpkin Biscuits

If you’re looking for a delicious way to ring in pumpkin spice season at your house. Well, I have a recipe that fits the bill! Pumpkin biscuits are the perfect probiotic food for fall because of their seasonal flavors, but also because they’re high in beta-carotene, are a great source of vitamin C, and are low in calories. Also — did I mention they taste wonderful?

These pumpkin biscuits are a great way to celebrate fall. They’re delicious, moist, and full of seasonal flavors. You can enjoy them fresh out of the oven or reheated with some butter and honey on top!

THREE TIPS FOR PERFECT PUMPKIN BISCUITS

  1. Keep your cold ingredients cold. Store your buttermilk in the refrigeration until you are ready to use it; cube your butter and place it in the freezer 20 minutes prior to cutting it into your dough.
  2. Fold your wet mixture gently into the flour mixture just until it’s moistened. Add fold layers when kneading to create flaky layers.
  3. Use non-aluminum baking powder to avoid that metallic taste.

The recipe below makes about 6-10 biscuits. The size of your biscuit cutter will determine how many biscuits you get from this batch, but don’t worry — they’re so good that they’ll go fast anyway! So whether you make one dozen or two dozen (or more!), I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Be Well-Omniley

Shrimp and Corn Chowder Recipe

Shrimp and Corn Chowder Recipe

Fall is a time for hot soups and chowders, and this one is sure to please. This shrimp and corn chowder recipe makes an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. It’s warm and substantial, yet light and refreshing. My husband serves it with crusty homemade rolls while my son enjoys it by itself. Yum!

The creamy roux base is the perfect backdrop to the sweetness of shrimp and corn. The chowder is finished with a touch of seafood boil, which adds just enough heat to make it interesting without overwhelming the delicate flavors of the seafood. If you like your soup spicy, add a dash more seafood boil in the end.

charcuterie board

I love hosting parties. It’s a chance to get together with friends and family, try new recipes, and share some laughs. But when it comes down to it, I’m always looking for ways to make entertaining easier for myself.

One of my favorite ways to throw a party is with a dessert charcuterie board. The concept is simple: Take your favorite sweet and savory snacks and pair them together on one plate. This makes for an easy, stress-free party that looks impressive but doesn’t take much time or effort to prepare.

The best thing about these boards? They’re customizable! If you want more savory items, add more meat and cheese items; if you prefer sweets, add more cake slices and cookies.

Dessert charcuterie boards are a fun way to serve dessert and the perfect way to introduce your guests to new flavors. The best part? They’re easy to put together.

Here are some of our favorites desserts for our fall charcuterie boards:

Goldfish pumpkin spice

Milano pumpkin spice cookies

Tate’s Bake Shop pumpkin spice cookies

That’s all there is to it! Hopefully, this charcuterie board will help you find some inspiration to make your own.

Porch Decor for Fall

Porch Decor for Fall

Today’s post is all about my porch decor for fall.

I love decorating my porch for fall! I have always enjoyed decorating for the seasons, and this is one of my favorite times to do it. I have found adding some fall colors with mums, marigolds, and pumpkins embraces the oncoming season. I also like to bring out the reds and oranges of the leaves with a few large leaf arrangements.

Seasonal decorating is a fun way to add some spice to your home. It’s also a great way to get into the holiday spirit.

porch decor for fall

I am a sucker for all things pumpkins, so when I saw these adorable pumpkins at Marshalls, I had to grab them. I think they complement my bed swing well.

Pumpkins

Pumpkins are one of the most affordable decorations you can use in your outdoor space. They come in all shapes and sizes, so finding one that fits your decor will be easy. If you want something more unique than the typical round pumpkin, try an oblong shape or even a mini gourd!

Mums

Mums are another great way to add color to your porch bed swing for fall! You can plant them in pots on your porch railing or place them in decorative baskets next to your swing.

fall decor for porch

I have a porch swing that my husband and son made for me a few years ago (check out the DIY). It’s very special to me. I try not to cover it up with too many items, but I like adding some fall touches, such as these pumpkins and throw. I also have a few pumpkins on the front porch, and some fall decorations. I love to decorate for the holidays, so I like to add some touches that will last all season long.

What do you think? Do you love the idea as I do? Are you looking forward to fall and all of the activities it has to offer? I think my favorite part of fall is decorating my porch. I love creating unique ways to decorate it so that it’s not the same old porch from year to year. What are some of your favorite aspects of fall, and what are you planning on doing during this wonderful time of year? Be Well-Omniley

Greetings. I hope this post finds you well. I got so many inquiries on my Halloween display I decided to share all the details with you.  I made the family room wall my Halloween accent wall this year and these bats did the trick.

I also used some staple pieces from MacKenzie Childs I think this display is the perfect balance between chic, spooky, and classy. I hope this post inspires you to live each moment to the fullest.
