Bread Wrappers Free Printable

Hey guys, Vanessa from Our Thrifty Ideas back today with another free printable. Can you believe it’s fall already? I seriously am SO excited. Being able to wear sweaters, boots, scarves, and snuggle up with a hot cocoa is my idea of a fabulous day. Also, all of the smells in the air are divine. I seriously can’t get over the aromas that fill the house with baked goods and crockpot meals cooking during the day.

I have Jess to thank for my love of pumpkin bread lastly. She took me out to dinner for my birthday last month and we both inhaled the pumpkin bread we tried at Kneaders. I’ve been obsessed ever since. Although I LOVE the stuff from the restaurant, it can get pricy with how much my family has been inhaling it. So I’ve started making my own, and I can never bake anything without passing a bunch of it out to my friends and neighbors. [Read more...]

Homemade Pumpkin Butter

Homemade pumpkin butter made in the crockpot - like Trader Joes! SO easy.

Have you guys tried the pumpkin butter from Trader Joes? It’s a big deal. I went and picked some up last week to see what all the hype was about – and it really is delicious. There was something bugging me about it, though. It was too simple. I kept thinking about how easily I could make it myself! So when I went through half the jar in a week I decided to try making a batch.

Now – there three things you need to know. 1. This homemade pumpkin butter is truly just as easy to make as it is to drive to TJ’s and buy. 2. It is not actually a butter, so if you haven’t tried this stuff before you should know - it is dairy-free so it’s more like a jam or preserve of sorts. Still delicious, just not technically a butter. I don’t want anyone getting on my case for not telling you about this! 3. The ingredients list lemon juice, I opted to use apple juice and also omitted ginger  (I have an aversion to it) so this is not an exact ‘trader joes pumpkin butter copycat recipe.’ It’s pretty similar in taste, though and I promise you will not be disappointed!  [Read more...]

“Blessed” Free Thanksgiving Printable

Hi my beautiful (or handsome) readers!

It’s Annette from Tips From a Typical Mom. Autumn is here. Crisp morning and evening air. Bright, beautiful colors are speckling the mountains out my window. Apple Cider is in the fridge. Pumpkin cookies are on the counter and I’m sitting here absolutely enjoining every second of it. I think Autumn must be my favorite season. Partly because I HATE being hot, and summer is like torture to me, but mostly because I know that Thanksgiving and Christmas are creeping closer. My two favorite holidays.

Thanksgiving Blessed Free Printable

I love Thanksgiving. Having a time of the year where we really focus on what we are thankful for has really helped me realize how blessed I am. I have so many things to be thankful to God for. He has sent me 5 beautiful, healthy children. They are all miracles in my eyes. I have a great husband that supports me and tells me that he loves me every day. I come from a great family and have great in-laws. I live in one of the most beautiful areas on earth. I get to sit out in the fresh air and watch my kids play soccer and cheer. I teach the cutest kids in my preschool class. I am so happy and blessed to have a wonderful hobby as a photographer and digital designer. Of course, my life is NOT perfect. But for now, this is what I’m focusing on. I know there are others in this world who are not as fortunate as I. But we all can have something to be thankful for. We can all find something in our lives that we know comes from God. He loves us all and wants to bless us. [Read more...]
