Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars

Easy to make Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars are perfect for holiday gatherings.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars
                  These are for those times when you can't decide whether you want pumpkin pie, cheesecake or something with crumb topping.
I hope I'm not the only one who runs into these complicated decisions...
These Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars are all those favorites in one easy to make bar.
They didn't last long and I'm pretty sure it was due to Colt having at least two on the first night but they were even better after a day in the fridge.
The crumb topping adds a wonderful texture to contrast the creamy pumpkin cheesecake filling.
You can't go wrong with these bars! 
As long as you love pumpkin, cheesecake and crumb topping these will be your new found favorite.

Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup With Orzo

Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup With Orzo
               I made this Roasted Tomato Soup with Orzo twice last week while I was fighting a really nasty cold because it was that good and the kids kept asking for me to make it again.
The hardest part of making this soup was convincing the kids to go out and pick the tomatoes in the garden because the spiders had built a few huge webs around the plants. 
It was like orchestrating an army operation to take them out.
I should have never let my kids know I hate spiders because now they all seem to be fearfull too.
Luckly they were just some giant garden spiders so I bribed them to use a stick to move the webs and eventually we ended up with a few huge bowels of the most gorgeously ripe tomatoes.
Roasting the tomatoes really concentrates the flavor and the orzo adds heartiness perfect for the cooler weather.
I know you'll love this soup as much as we do!

Apple Coffeecake With Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb

The perfect cake for brunch or dessert. The Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb is swirled throughout the cake allowing a taste in every bite.

                 The minute the leaves start changing all things to do with Apple, Pumpkin, my favorite long socks and boots start to happen! 
This Apple Coffeecake With Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb Swirl has been a regular on our fall must haves for years.
I originally made it with the Krustez Cinnamon Crumb Coffeecake mix for years until I had perfected  this little gem..
It's perfectly moist and the cinnamon brown sugar crumb topping provides the perfect contrast to the tart Granny Smith Apples.
I usually use whole wheat pastry flour to increase the fiber but all-purpose flour works equally well I can never tell the difference in this recipe between the two flours.
The cinnamon crumb swirl ensures a taste of the cinnamon brown sugar crumb topping in every bite.
We love this cake for brunch or dessert and it's always a hit.
