Freckles in April: What I'm Eating + What I Want to Eat

What I'm Eating + What I Want to Eat

Ignore the crack in my bowl. It's time for some new dishes, I think.

We have been loving this organic steel cut oatmeal from King Arthur. All the goodness of oatmeal but with a different texture we really enjoy. I had yet another half finished can of pumpkin my fridge this week so I've been mixing in a big spoonful, sweetening it with a drizzle of real maple syrup, and topping it with a generous shake of cinnamon. Delicious and whole foods friendly!

I'm loving my pumpkin oatmeal but I sure wouldn't say no to any of these!

Clockwise from top left:

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes  (check out that cookie on top!)
Pumpkin Snickerdoodles (which I made a few weeks ago to give away. They were DIVINE. They don't spread much so, if you make them, smash them a little flatter with the bottom of a sugared glass before baking)
Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts
Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
Pumpkin Cookies
Pumpkin Scones

Or, if you want to go the savory route, I've been dying to try this pumpkin mac and cheese but Aaron is weirdly anti-pumpkin (you can just imagine how he feels about the constant pumpkin baking going on around here lately) and I'd have to eat all of it myself. Not a bad thing, per se, but I kind of like my bum at its current size.


  1. I made those pumpkin oatmeal cookies, although I did cranberries and regular chocolate instead of cherries and white chocolate and they were DIVINE.

  2. pumpkin in my oatmeal? why have i never thought of this? wow. i love pumpkin everything. yesterday my whole day was better when i stopped by fresh & easy for something and they were giving out entire slices of pumpkin pie as samples.

  3. I love steel cut oats too! Something about the chewy texture just makes me happy. And pumpkin + oats = genius!

    Thanks for your comment! I saw that Design Mom does the three gift Christmas too, and I've been trying to convince my husband that it's a great idea for a month now. Thanks for adding your testimony. I think he's finally convinced. :)

  4. PUMPKIN SNICKERDOODLES!? Yes, please! Yum!

  5. Yum.

    I need snickerdoodles. ;)
