Pumpkin Spice As Far As the Eye Can See!

The other day I was in the supermarket and one of the end-aisle displays was nothing but pumpkin spice flavored items. Pumpkin spice peanut butter (DELICIOUS!), Jell-o, bread and pancake mix, coffee (whole bean and K-cups), pie filling, and more. And I can't lie, I purchased more than a few of those items on pure impulse. It's Fall and that means everything should taste like pumpkin!

5 Fun Facts About Cupcakes

Apparently 770,000,000 cupcakes were eaten in the US in 2012. That same year, Sprinkles Bakery, the world's first cupcake-only bakery from Beverly Hills, developed a hole in a wall ATM that dispenses cupcakes 24 hours a day. It holds up to 600 fresh cupcakes at a time! Cupcakes have swept the culinary world in the last few years, and it's no wonder why! With cupcakes flavors ranging from the classic (vanilla), to deliciously sweet (caramel apple), to oddly savory (jalapeno cheddar), there is a cupcake for everyone!
