Ok, I’ve got the sugar and (pumpkin) spice part, but not the everything nice. This post is going to get right to the point. I’m a woman on a mission, on the run, people to do, things to…
WHOA!!!! That’s certainly NOT how the saying goes, Lynne!! It’s places to go, people to see and things to do.
I went for a run this morning and became EXTREMELY motivated to set some goals, do some projects, and get. my. act. together!
Yes, I am a woman on fire. GREAT things are happening, you are all a part of it and I THANK YOU!!
Some things cannot be discussed as of yet, but I’ll let you know as they, as they… shoot! What’s the word I’m looking for…as they…accrue? Nah, I don’t think that’s it, but I don’t want to take the time right now to find the exact word.
SAVE THIS HOMEMADE PUMPKIN SPICE TO YOUR FAVORITE PINTEREST BOARD!
As I said, I’m a woman on a mission!
I had plans to make something today, but I was out of pumpkin pie spice and darn if I was going to go out to the store to buy it! Seriously, how many months out of the year am I going to use the stuff and for the amount of money I pay for that little container and am I going to use my money’s worth?
“I think not,” I said to myself. (It’s gotten to the point where I talk to myself a lot. Don’t judge me!)
Besides I’m paying for gas to get to the store, too. I figured that there’s GOT to be a recipe online from someone who has chartered these unknown spice mix free waters before me, right?
And voila, there is!
Actually, there’s quite a few of them, but I have made recipes from this captain and she rocks. So, this is from Jamie at My Baking Addiction. She has an incredible blog with so many wonderful recipes. If you haven’t been by to see her, please do!
Homemade Spice Blend Recipe
It is so easy to make your own spice blends at home that I think I might just give up the store-bought ones altogether. I made a Homemade Taco Seasoning that I’m in LOVE with!
It’s easy, tastes great if not better than those packets you buy at the store, I’m saving money, AND there no artificial gobbeldy gook or preservatives in mine.
So there, Mr. TacoSeasoningPacketMakerMan. *raspberries*
I’m working on making some other spice concoctions that you might see posted here soon. Ooh, I like that term, it makes me sound like a mad kitchen scientist.
What’s in Pumpkin Pie Spice?
Pumpkin spice has no actual pumpkin in it. Instead, it’s a blend of the spices commonly used to flavor a pumpkin pie (and lots of other pumpkin recipes).
My homemade pumpkin spice recipe is a simple mix of . . .
- All Spice
If you have all these ingredients in your spice cabinet right now, you can make your own homemade pumpkin spice. There’s really no reason to buy a grocery store spice mix ever again!
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Mix all the spices together
That’s it. There’s no step 2!
I stored my pumpkin spice blend in a small jar but you could also use a ziploc bag, a Tupperware container or any container you have with a nice fitting lid.
If you have some empty spice containers with shaker lids lying around, store it in that and be ready to sprinkle your homemade spice over everything.
