We are still enjoying some nice weather here in the Dallas area, and I so love being out by my waterfall.
This cute seasonal teapot was found in a thrift store in Columbus, Ohio, last year. Don't you love the piece of wheat as the handle, the basket weave design, and the harvest of fruits and vegetables around the bottom? The top is a pumpkin with more fruits. It doesn't pour very nicely, but it sure is cute!
This yummy Fall treat is from Cooking With Carlee. It sounded so good to me and I've made it twice already! I asked Carlee if she minded if I shared it, and she was most agreeable. Thanks, Carlee! Her original recipe can be found here.
I eat this for breakfast, along with my egg and melted cheese, fresh berries, and a cup of tea, but I also eat it as dessert at lunch time, after my salad. The recipe only has 1/4 cup of maple syrup, but it is sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. I love that it has plain yogurt in it, too. I had some leftover pumpkin puree in the freezer and this was an excellent way to use it.
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup maple syrup (Yes, I used the real thing!)
2 large eggs
1 cup plain yogurt
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I added 1 tablespoon, because I like things spicy!)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray baking dishes (use 6-9 ramekins, an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish or equivalent).
Whisk together pumpkin, syrup, eggs and yogurt until well combined. Stir in pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking powder and vanilla.
Mix in milk and rolled oats, and pour into prepared ramekins or pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes in ramekins, closer to 45 minutes in a baking dish. The center should be set.
It's delicious served warm with some whipped cream or maple syrup. My son, who is here with me, warms it up and puts a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
I get 9 servings out of this when baked in a square pan, and I just re-warm the serving in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds.
Recently, Margie from Tea in the Valley sent me three sample of David's tea and a cute Hello Kitty card that she made with fun stickers, shown on the right. The teas were Red Velvet, Chocolate Chili Chai, and a Baklava tea. They were all wonderful! Judith from Lavender Cottage and Gardening sent me some David's Pumpkin Chai tea (oh my!) and a beautifully embroidered tea towel, handmade from a fellow blogger, and a handmade card made by Judith. Aren't blogging sisters so thoughtful? Thank you Margie and Judith!!
Judith thought this towel was perfect for me and I certainly think so, too!
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
Thank you for your visit! xo
