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…

My husband picked a nice steakhouse for one dinner (I call him my ‘meat-and-potatoes-guy’ for a reason). There was…

Welcome Spring: Creamy Parmesan Primavera Pasta

One of the first signs of spring around my household: baseball is back on tv!  I’m not the baseball fan (that would be my husband) but that nostalgic reminder of impending warm weather is always a relief. My favorite sign of spring: it’s no longer dark at 4 pm!  We…

Healthy Baked Parmesan Fries

So, when I made the homemade fish sticks for my last post, my meat-and-potatoes-loving husband was way more excited about the side dish: baked french fries. So I decided I should do a separate post for the fries. I actually make these baked fries all the time and here are the…
