Pumpkin Spice Latte on A Stick: Pumpkin Pop Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Latte Pop Recipe

Ahh, the season of cozy is here: Fall. In Los Angeles that means cool breezes, changing leaves, and warm scarves.

Wait no, it’s 87 degrees.

We may live in the land without seasons, but come fall I still crave all things pumpkin spice. So Colleen and I experimented and came up with this perfect pop to satisfy our need for cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin goodness. It sounds a little funky, but I promise ye shall be grateful for this recipe.

Holiday Entertaining with a Tropical Twist



As part of our partnership with Carnival, Jaime will be on a Caribbean cruise over Thanksgiving break. For the rest of us, I’ve come up with a few holiday recipes and entertaining tips inspired by the tropics. I’m not suggesting you hire a steel drum band, although that’s fine too, I’m simply infusing the traditional fete with some Caribbean color and spice influenced by my own recent travels.



As my sister, an event director and master mixologist, and I island hopped from Puerto Rico to St. Thomas to Barbados to St. Lucia to St. Kitt to St. Maarten and back to Puerto Rico, she would dissect each tasty drink that we were served. Meanwhile, I was diligently taking notes so I could recreate the tasty concoctions at home. This is where I would insert a ridiculous photo of us dancing in a conga line clearly not dissecting or doing anything diligently, but there is a pact of secrecy so those photos will never be shared.


Read on for the perfect island-inspired nibbles and libations for your holiday guests…Just as you start off any tropical cruise with a rum punch, let’s start our party with the same. (more…)

Put your holiday cranberries in a pickle and watch your guests swoon. By combining these tarts with some sweets and some spice, you will end up with an oh-so-nice addition to your meal. Not only do they add some spark to a traditional turkey dinner, they add zip to a cheese serving…
