Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice

It’s officially the fall. It’s September, so it’s fall. And I feel like I am finally allowed to enjoy it now with out this seasonal-confusion disorder that seems to plague me with the change of every season with every impending holiday. Last year, I saw Christmas crap at Costco in August. I saw Halloween stuff in the stores in July and now this year, I saw Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks in August, too!

Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice

As someone who’s life revolves around pumpkin during fall time and all the way through the end of the Christmas season, if I can finagle it – I have felt like I had to fight the fall and pumpkiny urges until September officially rolled in. This is worse than the first weeks of diet. Denying yourself pumpkin spicey things when everyone else is eating, drinking and shooting it up to their hearts content and having to withhold yourself is torture! But no more.

I’m done, giving in, throwing in the towel, walking off the cliff that leads to no-where but pumpkin and carbs all the rest of the year long. *insert cartoonish maniacal laughter here*

Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice

I love making my own spice blends because you have the ability to tone down or jack up certain spices that you love and the ones you don’t. Like clove? Awesome, toss in a little more to give your pie that spice that deep and complex, cozy flavor. Or not such a fan of the nutmeg, tone it down a tad. Make it your own and then you don’t have to worry about gathering 5 different spice jars just to make one thing – it’s all here in one convenient little jar!

    I’m a big fan of homemade spice blends, but I’ve never done my own pumpkin pie spice before – will have to try this fall!

    I’m in denial that summer is over. If I get to start fall off with this I am willing to change my mind.

    Crazy marketing people! I can handle an early Halloween, but Christmas? The last thing I want to think about when it’s 400 degrees outside is the jolly old fellow.

    Anyways, love this spice! Definitely bookmarked!

    I’m almost out of Pumpkin Pie Spice…guess I don’t need to buy myself a new one! Love the idea of making it myself. Have you ever tried making your own curry? I haven’t yet but would love to!

    captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and
    I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

    A good website marketing ebook must contain
    your individual opinions and the relevant information that could be helpful for any person getting
    into the internet marketing business. However, writing an web marketing ebook is just not a straightforward
    thing to complete. With the launch of i – Pad and
    Kindle, using e – Books keeps growing in use.
