Pumpkin Pie Spice – everyone’s favourite autumn spice mix, featuring the ever so lovely cinnamon and 5 other warming spices!
Today I’m sharing how simply you can make pumpkin pie spice yourself and add a hint of autumn to any of your food creations! Pumpkin pie spice might be very common in certain parts of the world, but Denmark is still not reached the level of ~basicness~ to sell it in most grocery stores. I was wondering what all the fuss was about pumpkin pie spice, so I decided to make it and see for myself!
I’ve yet to make an actual pumpkin pie with it, but, I’ve been adding it to some of my breakfasts for an autumn ~vibe~, and I really like it. Get creative because this stuff tastes good in pretty much anything! Oatmeal, overnight oats, smoothies, chia pudding, pumpkin bread, you name it!!
Pumpkin pie stuff aside, a little over a week ago we got a new addition to the family. At the start of September, one of my guinea pigs passed away, and now we got my other piggie a new friend: say hi to Sally! She’s a little cutie with black and orange curly locks, currently just 1 month and 2 weeks old!
