Crabmeat Salad Stuffed Avocados

Crabmeat, to me, means summertime. I spent my childhood summers in Maine, where there is no shortage of rocky coastlines, cute little seaside towns, and warm-weather seafood festivals. There is also no shortage of seafood “shacks” (for lack of a better word). The kind of place where you can stroll in…

20-Minute Honey Dijon Grilled Chicken

Memorial Day always sneaks up on me. Maybe because New England weather is often still chilly and rainy and decidedly not summer-like in late May. But every year, I’m shocked when I realize: Memorial Day is only a week away! Meaning the official start of summer is nearly here. I…

Welcome Home Puppy! Peanut Butter and Honey Homemade Dog Treats

Over the past few days, I haven’t had as much time for The Scrumptious Pumpkin site as I’d like. I haven’t had much time for anything, actually. I’ve had my hands full with the new addition to our family: an eight-week-old beagle named Calvin. He is: two parts ‘boundless tornado of…

Huevos Rancheros Easy-Crust Pizza

Cheers to it finally being (almost) the weekend. And cheers to the fact that Cinco do Mayo can be fully and properly celebrated this year because it just so happens to fall on a Saturday! I started the celebration early at our house by making this healthy, hearty, and delicious…

Skinny Chocolate Oatmeal and Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches

Do you have a food you’ve loved since preschool? That you’ve never grown tired of and think you never possibly could get tired of? I absolutely do. That food for me is peanut butter. I loved it when I was three, and I love it still. I’m incredibly loyal to peanut…
