It’s pumpkin time here at Newlyweds blog and I had to try this yummy recipe I’ve seen floating around the Internets. And since my closest Starbucks is at least 45 minute drive away, I figure, what the hey, I’ll make it at home. So glad I did, because not only was it a pick me up in the middle of the day, it was super good. My Mom even liked it and she’s not what I would call a pumpkin fanatic like some people I know, ahem.
