Halloween struts in at just the right time. With some sort of time warp, it's magically the end of October and I'm on the brink of losing my mind. Anyone else with me? I poured a scoop of cat food into the detergent slot of the washing machine at 2am last week.

Honey Pumpkin Caramels with Toasted Pepitas http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/22/honey-pumpkin-caramels/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/22/honey-pumpkin-caramels/#comments Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:07:56 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7982 Honey Pumpkin Caramels



With Lucas extending his China trip to finalize tooling at the factory, I've been home alone for nearly two weeks. Just me, two extra snuggly kitties, a pound of honey pumpkin caramels, and season one of Transparent (Have you discovered this show yet? I've renamed Amazon Prime Instant Video: "Procrastination Station").

Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Glaze {Gluten-free} http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/14/pumpkin-spice-muffins-with-cinnamon-cream-cheese-glaze/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/14/pumpkin-spice-muffins-with-cinnamon-cream-cheese-glaze/#comments Wed, 15 Oct 2014 04:37:43 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7926 Pumpkin Spice Muffins



On our flight back from Philadelphia two weeks ago, I found myself in a middle seat caught in a conversational crossfire between Lucas and the founder of HotorNot.com at the very moment I'd decided to get some dissertation writing done. If ever there was place to be a fly on the wall. After forcing Lucas to swap seats with me, I threw some instrumental music on my headphones to drown out their animated discussion.

No bake pumpkin cheesecake mousse http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/07/bake-pumpkin-cheesecake-mousse/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/10/07/bake-pumpkin-cheesecake-mousse/#comments Wed, 08 Oct 2014 05:50:52 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7904 Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse



This no bake pumpkin cheesecake mousse is a recipe for those of us in California wishing we could start celebrating fall desserts, but rejecting the oven in this wicked hot late summer. It's what you whip up when your air-conditioner-less house is already 80°F in the coolest hallway when you get out of bed at 9am on Saturday morning in October. This pumpkin dessert will still satisfy all your fall cravings with way less effort (and heat) than baking a pie with a fussy crust.

The open call for meyer lemon poachers still stands. No one has yet taken me up on the offer...except for the opossums who keep leaving mangled up lemons in the middle of our weed garden. I'm here to tempt you to come collect a basket of lemons by pulling out the blow torch to make these lemon meringue s'mores.
