DIY: Pumpkin Pie Spice2 Comments

First of all, I have to thank all of you readers out there! Last week, I hit 1 million pageviews for the blog! I know it may not sound like a lot to some people and there are those out there who probably reach that in a month’s time, but I am so happy with this accomplishment. I have all of you to thank!  I never thought that this little thing of mine could be something more than my family members reading. In the past few weeks, I have gotten so many nice compliments from people I grew up with, co-workers, and family members who have tried out recipes and loved them. The cool thing is that they just keep on sharing! Another accomplishment of this blog has been the opportunity to write blog posts for HuffPost Taste. It has been such a wonderful ride and I am excited for what the future may hold. So again, thank you from the bottom of my heart, it truly means a lot. 
It is that time of year when all of my favorite things come out, pumpkin, hay rides, apples, etc. etc. I have been holding off on baking up my favorite pumpkin inspired desserts for a few more weeks and in preparation for it, I wanted to be well stocked with some pumpkin pie spice. Spices are expensive and Blair and I are trying hard to put money away each month for a future baby, so we are on a tight budget right now. Since I loved making my own taco seasoning at home, I thought why not try to do a pumpkin pie blend myself. This is definitely not something new to the blogosphere, but I thought it was something worth sharing. The cool part is that just like the taco seasoning, chances are you have all the spices you need already in your pantry. All you do is mix it up and store safely for all of those delicious fall inspired recipes. Feel free to adapt and tweak the recipe to your liking, especially if you favor a certain spice in the blend. I am excited to share some recipes with you using this blend in the near future!

2 teaspoons ground ginger 

2 teaspoons nutmeg 
1 ½ teaspoons ground allspice 
1 ½ teaspoons ground cloves

What you’ll do:
Combine spices in a small bowl, mix well to combine. Store in a small jar or spice container.
