Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake

This is my favorite time of year. Not only does the weather start to cool but it's also the season of pumpkins! I love to see pumpkin decorations, I love to visit pumpkin patches, but mostly I love to eat pumpkins! There are so many ways to cook a pumpkin and so many dishes that you can make. One dish I had never made or even eaten was Pumpkin Cake. I have seen people comment that this recipe is simple and  delicious so I decided to do some research and create a House of Fauci's version. This is absolutely one of the easiest pumpkin recipes I have ever made. It is a simple mix of just a few ingredients and it takes no special skills.

Halloween Tradition

You've Been Boo-ed

The start of fall marks kids going back to school, cooler weather, football and most importantly Halloween. My girls love Halloween. They love going through all of the Halloween magazines and choosing which costumes they want to wear and they also enjoy decorating the house with spider webs and skeletons. So a few years ago when a cut out of a ghost along with 3 bags of treats (one for each child) landed on our front porch with a note that read 'You've Been Boo-ed', my girls and I got excited. Not only were we excited and happy that someone in our neighborhood thought of us, but I was excited that we were about to begin a new Halloween tradition. To be 'Boo-ed' is an exciting thing to have happen to you and your family because it is … [Read more...]
