With the weather getting a bit cooler outside, I wanted to create a drink that would warm me up and celebrate the season. Nothing says this more than Pumpkin Pie Hot Chocolate! A mixture of pumpkin pie spices, pureed pumpkin and a rich and creamy hot chocolate. It does not get any better than this!

Dana’s Aunt Lois sends me recipes every once in a while. Lois has great taste, so I try to make them whenever possible. Last week, she sent me a recipe from Tea Time Magazine that looked absolutely fabulous. We decided that we should make it right away. This recipe makes one half of a sheet cake and then cuts it in thirds to make a layer cake. The cake is layered with a fresh Orange Cream Cheese frosting. The orange in the frosting gives the cake a little something extra that is different from other pumpkin cakes. It keeps you guessing. The cake was delicious.

I collect barbecue sauces wherever I go. I don’t care if it is a farmer’s market, grocery store, big box store or even a back alley. Ok, the back alley might be a stretch. But you get my drift. On my latest trip to World Market I noticed that they had a nice selection of sauces. So I gravitated toward the KC sauces and picked up some Cowtown. This sauce is known around the bbq community as a great sauce. It even won best sauce in the world at the American Royal. Not too many sauces can say that.
The other week I went into the local super market and found some Sirloin Tips on sale. I love sirloin tips. They are tender and delicious! I have been extremely busy, so I figured I would experiment with making them in the crock-pot. That way I can enjoy some delicious Sirloin Tips with mushrooms without much effort.
This is a simple, quick and delicious dish. Pork tenderloin is a tender cut of meat that cooks fast. In about 40 minutes you can be chewing down on a delicious pork tenderloin with roasted apples. Yes, you can do this no problem.
