Try This— Homemade Pumpkin Honey Butter

Of all things to impulse buy, 10 cans of pumpkin puree was probably the most ridiculous. Not my proudest moment. Still, it feels a lot like Fall around here, so I might as well embrace this whole pumpkin thing. In search of some not-so-pumpkiny pumpkin recipes, I came across this cool looking Pumpkin Honey Butter recipe.

Try This---Homemade Pumpkin Honey ButterI definitely love bread, and rolls, and biscuits, and waffles, and—well, you get the idea, but what’s bread without butter? So I made this Pumpkin Honey Butter last night and it’s absolutely delicious, if I do say so myself! It’s super easy to make and I’m not kidding when I tell you that I actually reached for this heavenly spread instead of cookie butter for my morning waffle today. That’s really an incredible thing right there, since I haven’t even admitted I have a cookie butter problem yet! You must try this!

3 Ingredient Honey Pumpkin Face Mask (Perfect for Fall)—Spa Days at Home

I have 8 cans of pumpkin puree in the pantry as we speak—down from a whopping 10… Don’t ask… Okay. Okay. I’ll tell you what happened. I went to the grocery store hungry, and naturally, I bought a ton of things I didn’t need. Any and everything that was on sale I placed in my cart because my stomach told me to. Sigh. Bear witness to my shame— pumpkin puree. The real kicker is that I don’t much like pumpkin pie, and pumpkin spice lattes are just wrong on so many levels.

As with all food that I have an excess of, I decided to slather it on my face because, well, because life is dutiful. If you’re going to go with homemade beauty products, I say go big or go home. I did a little research on pumpkins and they are seriously jam-packed with all kinds of goodies for your skin. Pumpkins  are a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and beta carotene. I’m all about spa days at home, so I whipped up this awesome Honey Pumpkin Face Mask. Check it out!
