Daily Inspiration – Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

I decided to make these bars yesterday to surprise the mister and boy were they good. Two Peas & Their Pod strike again! I had most of the ingredients, plus I added some cocoa powder in the mix at the last minute since I didn’t have a full bag of chocolate chips. Oh my god, they turned out amazing and super moist. I think I finally have this baking thing down. Who am I kidding? It was pure luck! HA! Give it shot if you are in the mood for something pumpkin flavor, besides a “pumpkin spice latte”. I must confess, I don’t like those. I rather have these muffins and now these bars! Yum! What is your favorite pumpkin treat? Happy baking friends!

Daily Inspiration – Fall Garland DIY

I cannot believe Fall officially started. I decided to make a little something Saturday morning with some scraps of felt I had laying around to kick off the season. I started with an idea in my head but not sure what I was going to do. I do feel a little silly making it a DIY but since it might inspire someone out there why not share it? I must confess, it has yet to go up in our house since I’m still gathering the rest of the décor but making this got me started. All I did was cut some leaves out of a few different colors of felt and hand stitch them with pretty twine. I told you it was easy!. Here is to the beginning of a new season!

Daily Inspiration – Placeholders DIY

Is Thanksgiving over? Not over here, even though the Christmas tree is up and all decorations are set, we are still enjoying some leftovers. I’ll share a nice leftover recipe tomorrow that immediately became a new tradition.

For now, take a look at the easiest placeholders you can make. I had these little pumpkins for decoration, I decided they were gonna be my base for placeholders (for Christmas maybe I’ll use some pine-cones). To make your placeholder you will need floral wire ( I used some leftovers from these billy buttons), little pieces of paper (depending on how many guests you are having), tape and either stamps or a pen.

Here’s how to: stamp a name of your guest on each piece of paper (you can simply write them down if you don’t have stamps), then cut down the wire to the length you want, twist the wire to the pumpkin stem, tape your piece of paper to it and you’re done. How simple is that? The end result looks adorable and your guests will appreciate the little details on your table. Enjoy!

Daily Inspiration – Boot socks and open letter to L.A!

Dear L.A,

Please stop messing with us. Bring the cold weather to us already. It’s October and there is no reason to be over 100 degrees outside. We need some decent cold so I can rock some of these.

Thank you very much.
