I came across this yummy recipe HERE a while back, made some modifications, and my family absolutely loves it. Most especially my little one year old! I don’t know about you, but I am a sucker for pumpkin anything, fall days, crisp air and holidays! So the combination is amazing!
With so much yummy food around ALL THE TIME during this time of year, I love this recipe. It is so so tasty, easy, and can be stored to eat for a few days. You can get that yummy pumpkin/fall deliciousness without feeling guilty after! I promise you will love it!
