Real Pumpkin Spice


Instead of going with the local coffee shop brand, go with your very own homemade pumpkin spice.
Ingredients:
⅓ cup ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
1-½ teaspoons ground cloves
1-½ teaspoons ground allspice
 
Directions:
Add spices together until well mixed. Add to pretty much anything to get that delicious flavor and smell.
Ideas: 
Sprinkle a bit into your pumpkin before lighting your candle. You Jack-O-Lantern will smell wonderful.
Add a few teaspoons to your pancake mix before your dollop them on your griddle. Top with whipped cream.
Add to your pumpkin seeds before you bake them. They'll be sweet and warm.
Add a few teaspoons to your peanut butter before adding it to your toast.
Add a teaspoon to your popcorn. The sweet and salty flavors pair really well.
Add a teaspoon to your toothpaste to give your teeth a warm hug (tell us what you think!)
