Gotta Try Dessert: Pumpkin Dump Cake

If you've never heard, can I introduce you to the concept of 'dump cake?' While the name is quite unflattering, the concept is genius! The cake consists of several pantry ingredients and some eggs...involves a few stirs and about an hour in the oven. And all the busy moms rejoiced! Any time I have to make a dessert on the fly, it's a dump cake. This particular cake is of the pumpkin variety. And hold the term cake loosely, because this tastes like a pumpkin pie married a cobbler and had…

DIY Autumn Arrangements

Is it cooling down where you live yet? Fall is definitely in the air here and with the crisp weather, comes a desire to fully immerse myself in Autumn. Despite my penchant for DIY projects, I've never been much of a floral arrangement kind of girl (I actually just got my first wreath last Christmas). However, the web has been teeming with bold and beautiful autumn foliage lately. So much so that I'm inspired to try out a DIY arrangement at home. In no particluar order, here are my top…

25 Simple Play Ideas for Fall

I've written a lot about the importance of family traditions, big and small. But one thing I sometimes forget is how many mini traditions we've built around the changing of each season. It's often not until the leaves start turning colors and there's a chill in the air that I remember how much the kids love it when I have a hot pot of apple cider simmering on the stove, or reading In November together under a big soft blanket. Today our contributor Alli is here sharing some of her favorite…

Thanksgiving Side Dish Round Up

If you're like me, turkey is not the star of the Thanksgiving meal. It's all the side dishes. Typically, we make a meal with one or two side dishes. Thanksgiving is an excuse to make little bit of everything. Or at least delegate family and friends to help you make a little bit of everything. (1) Let's start with a MUST. Mashed Potatoes. These are hands-down the best. And it's all in the technique. As in, TWO ingredients. These are worth the effort. (2) As a kid, I was never a fan of…
