Easy Christmas Wreath: 100 Days of Homemade Holiday Inspiration on HoosierHomemade.com

Growing up with a Mom that was a florist, gave me the love of fresh greenery, especially during the holiday season. Cutting greenery from your yard, the neighbors yard (with permission of course) or along side the road is a great way to be creative. If you happen to live somewhere that’s not possible, many florists will sell greenery for you to use. You could also probably find artificial greenery at the craft stores.

Rachel has a fantastic tutorial for putting together this gorgeous Christmas wreath and decoration. I did a little poking around while I was visiting her blog, and you must check out her Gallery, really fun projects!

7 Drink Recipes To Change Your Morning Coffee Routine

People are very fickle when it comes to how they drink their coffee, and I count myself among them. Like many people I became a coffee drinker during my days in college, those late night study sessions were fueled by it’s caffeine. And like many who early on sweetened their drink with sugar or cream I have experimented with different roasts and varied the blends of coffee additions to my drink. I’ve gone so far as to mix different roasts together to find the perfect taste. Does this make me a coffee snob? Probably.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Layered Dessert

Ah Fall…the weather begins to cool down, the leaves begin to change, and it’s time to begin baking with all the wonderful flavors – apple, caramel, pecans – oh yes, and pumpkin! Nothing quite compares to a loaf of Pumpkin Bread warm from the oven, or a batch of Pumpkin Cookies with Maple Frosting on top! This Pumpkin Cream Cheese Layered Dessert fits right in with all the luscious Pumpkin Desserts!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Layered Dessert | Layers of cream cheese, whipped topping, pudding, and pecans on top of a sweet crust | Recipe on HoosierHomemade.com

This Layered Pudding Dessert recipe is one that I have been making for years, and originally coming from my sister-in-law. Typically I use 1 box of chocolate pudding and 1 box of vanilla pudding, but since we are all ready for delicious Fall Desserts, I decided to change up the flavors and use International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer.

While I do love pumpkin flavor, I have to be honest and say that I am a bit picky when it comes to pumpkin desserts. For instance, I love Pumpkin Cookies, Cake and Bread but I really don’t like Pumpkin Pie. So this time around when I made this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Layered Dessert, I didn’t add any additional canned pumpkin, just letting the flavor of the creamer do all the work.

This dessert is easy and goes together quickly. The longest amount of time is waiting for the crust to cool, often I make the crust the night before, so I can speed up the process when putting together the layers. The crust is a combination of flour, sugar, butter and nuts. To bring in more of the Fall flavors, I used pecans this time, but you can certainly use walnuts if you want.

Then the first layer is the cream cheese layer, creamed together with sugar and whipped topping until smooth and spread over the crust.

For the pudding layer, I used 2 small boxes of instant French Vanilla pudding, and a combination of milk and International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer. After whisking until smooth, pour over the cream cheese layer. And into the fridge to set for about 10 minutes.

Finishing with more whipped topping and a good sprinkle of chopped pecans.

This best Hot Cocoa Recipe is a bit spicy but when paired with the luscious Homemade Marshmallows Recipe, it’s a win-win!

Hot Cocoa Recipe with Homemade Creamsicle Marshmallows | 100 Days of Homemade Holiday Inspiration on HoosierHomemade.com

Once upon a time I thought making Homemade Marshmallows was super difficult and only for those that had mad baking skills. But after gaining the courage to try them, I quickly realized they aren’t difficult at all. And oh my, they taste SO much better than store bought. I’m dreaming (okay maybe not dreaming) but anticipating the cold winter nights, gathered around the Christmas tree enjoying a cup of this Spicy Hot Cocoa!

There are so many people on our gift list that would enjoy some dry hot cocoa mix and homemade marshmallows – teachers, the mailman, the baby sitter, and so many more!
