Pumpkin Pie Spice Review
Recently I've been thinking about fall-themed recipes and projects that I could include in my BLOGtober series, Time for Fall. In addition to being fall-themed, I wanted the posts to also be useful. So, after some thought I thought you might like to see a review of a DIY pumpkin spice mix. I found the recipe here, but to be honest, you can find similar ones all over the web.
Here's the recipe:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/3 cup cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons allspice

So my opinion? 4/5 stars. I'm not sure what it was, because although this was good it was not quite perfect. When I make pumpkin pie I skip the allspice and cloves. Maybe that was it. Either way, it was good, but I may look for another mix next time around. And I will certainly use what I have.
Stay tuned for Nice and Spicy Soap and Pumpkin Spice Play Dough, both featuring this warm fall blend!
My very not pretty, not blog-friendly picture of the old cinnamon container I used to store my Pumpkin Pie Spice. Sometimes you just have to use what you have on hand. No fancy labels or jars, just an old plastic container and a sharpie!
Do you have any favorite homemade spice mixes? This taco seasoning is my favorite of all time. I use it often. It saves me money and I like it much better than store-bought mixes.
As a reminder, I'm taking part in the Ultimate Blog Challenge!
