Fall Favorites

As I have said, there are many things to love about my life right now…especially since I am writing this on the couch at my family’s house with two little cutie pie puppies by my side! Smile

I was super happy to walk in a house all decorated for fall last night.  Our whole house is decorated, but I especially love the mantel and family room area. I am candle obsessed and  think they add such a homey feeling to any room!

I am also super excited to be home because I got to go to Zumba today. I love Zumba at my home dance studio.  I love the people that are at the class and the songs that they dance to!

Another thing to love about fall: my mom’s pumpkin gobs.  Do you call them gobs? I know a lot of people call them whoopie pies, but where I am from, they’re gobs. I especially love her recipe because I am not the biggest cream cheese filling fan, and these don’t have it!

Here’s mama’s recipe!

Pumpkin Gobs

Ingredients for the cake:

  • 2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 c. pumpkin
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. cloves
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 3 c. flour
  • 1 c. vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. ginger
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. vanilla

Directions for the cake:

Cream sugar, oil, pumpkin and eggs.  Add vanilla and dry ingredients.  Mix well.  Drop by tablespoon onto lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 12 – 15 minutes.

Ingredients for filling:

  • 1 (2 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 c. crisco shortening
  • 1 t. vanilla

Directions for filling:

Putt all ingredients in mixing bowl and beat until think enough to spread.  Put 2 cakes together with filling.  Enjoy!

Well, they may not be the healthiest thing ever, but pumpkin’s a fruit, right? So if I eat them for lunch, I will have a well rounded meal! Bahaha…

Another fall thing I am loving…

CANDY CORN!

I know a lot of you are in love with it, too.  Do you also like Indian corn? What about the ones shaped like pumpkins? Right now I am trying my hardest to keep the bag closed so I don’t devour it in 2.3 seconds…

Since my mama has some candy corn, I think I may have to make these from Averie at Love Veggies and Yoga.  I saw the recipe and fell in love with the pictures!

I’m off to catch up on some On Demand shows since my life at school is crazy hectic and I just want to relax today!

Do you call them gobs? Whoopie pies? Something totally different?

Are you a candy corn fan or no?
