Pumpkin French Toast

One of my favorite things about this time of year is all of the yummy pumpkin recipes there are to try. So when I came across this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it. It did not disappoint. The pumpkin wasn't overwhelming but there was a hint of it and it was really good.

Pumpkin French Toast

3 eggs
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1-3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 - 6 slices bread
Pecans, chopped
maple syrup

In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Place the slices of bread into the egg mixture and let soak while the pan heats up [3-5minutes].
Spray skillet with non-stick spray in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place bread into the pan and cook until golden brown on 1 side, approx. 2-3 minutes. Turn the slices over and cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes longer. Top with pecans and maple syrup. Enjoy!

Owl Cupcakes

I saw these cupcakes at a Halloween party and thought they looked so cute and easy, so I had to try them. The picture below are the cupcakes I saw at the party. I like the chocolate frosting look better, but I had to make these cupcakes because they are my ultimate favorite and the frosting is to die for.
What you'll need:
Bag of Oreos, twist the cookies apart and keep the side with the frosting
Reeses pieces
