So easy and so cute!

If you're like me, you are completely addicted to Pinterest. If you're not on Pinterest, what's wrong with you? Haha, just kidding (sort of). I could easily spend hours on that site and pin everything I see. I started looking at some of my boards and realized that I haven't tried to make, bake, cook, or create a majority of the things that I've pinned. I have done some of the projects, but not nearly the same amount that I've pinned. (If you have no clue what I'm talking about, join Pinterest!)
So, I've challenged myself to get out my glue gun or baking pans and start trying some new stuff. I started with my dessert board "Bake Me" and I scrolled all the way to the bottom and picked out one of the first things I pinned. I gathered the ingredients and spent the afternoon preparing a very delicious dessert.
Here are the scrumptious Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing. They are soooo good and were very easy to make. I even broke out my fancy tips for the icing. Since there is cream cheese in the icing, be sure to keep the cupcakes refrigerated. I also had a bunch of icing left over so I stuck it in the freezer to save for a spice cake or pumpkin loaf.

I've been looking for a good homemade spaghetti sauce. It's probably my family's favorite meal. So, I turned to my favorite cook, Pioneer Woman, and tried her recipe. It's tasty, delicious, and of course, very easy to make. I didn't make the meatballs, just the sauce, but you do what suits your family.
Saute one diced onion and 3 cloves of minced garlic in just a little bit of olive oil in a dutch oven.
1 diced onion
3 cloves of garlic, minced
28 oz. whole tomatoes
28 oz. crushed tomatoes
1 tsp. sugar
Salt, pepper, parsley, italian seasoning to taste
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil in a dutch oven. Add both cans of tomatoes and sugar. Add seasonings to taste and mix well. Cook at medium heat for 20 minutes.
