Even though it’s technically still Summer, and the weather has yet to cool off around here, the smell of pumpkin spice in the air has me overly, ridiculously excited about the upcoming Fall season!  I’ve got quite a list of recipes in the works, and first up is this Pumpkin Pie Spiced Coffee cake with an unexpected ingredient!

Pumpkin Pie Spiced Coffee Cake

Every year it seems the Fall season starts earlier and  this year has been no exception.  I’m not complaining at all because it means I could get my hands on International Delight® Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer that much sooner!  I’ve been enjoying it (and the new Chocolate Hazelnut flavor) in my coffee every morning already but started wondering what else I could use it for.

Last Fall I tried pumpkin in cookies for the first time ever and was instantly hooked.  I planned to attempt to create a pumpkin-flavored coffee cake this season and decided I’d try to use the Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer in place of milk to give my cake even more pumpkiny spicy goodness!  It worked fabulously!  Seriously, if you love pumpkin spice, this one’s for you!

This cake turned out to be incredibly moist with tons spicy pumpkin flavor!  Each bite I took I questioned over and over again why the heck I was so against trying anything pumpkin for so long. This is most definitely the perfect treat to serve when you have company over this Fall.  It works for a yummy seasonal breakfast or an afternoon treat with a cup of coffee.  Heck, I’d eat it for lunch and dinner too!  I really missed out for a lot of years, so I say that it’s only fair that I should make up for it now, right?

Of course, this has peaked my curiosity as to what else can be done with the oh-so-addicting International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer!  Got any ideas?  I’d love to hear them!  In the meantime, I’m going to eat this cake alongside my coffee and just bask in all the pumpkin and spice for as long as I possibly can this wonderful Fall season before it’s on to the next big holiday (and more fun coffee creamer flavors)!

Pumpkin Pie Spiced Coffee Cake

I highly recommend you pick up a bottle (or two, three, four…) of International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer at Walmart and join me in over-indulging in all things pumpkin this season! While you’re at it, I’d also recommend trying out the new Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee Creamer too! It instantly transforms your plain ole coffee into a coffeehouse specialty – at home and goes great with my Pumpkin Pie Spiced Coffee Cake!  You and your guests will love both this Fall, I promise!

Brown Sugar and Honey Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

Try this Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin for an easy-to-make dinner to impress!

On Christmas Eve, Daryl’s family gets together for dinner and gifts. For dinner, it’s turkey and ham with all the traditional sides.  On the day after Christmas, we visit my family and have dinner there, which is also ham. That leaves me to figure out something other than ham or turkey to have for our Christmas dinner.

This is the second year in a row I’ve had to stray from my traditional turkey dinner and come up with something extra delicious for the special occasion.  Last year I made a beef tenderloin.  It was so good and while one large tenderloin gave us two full dinners, our finances are a bit different this year.

I opted to make a more wallet-friendly Brown Sugar and Honey Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin!  Let me tell you, it did not disappoint!

I wanted to do something with the pork tenderloin that I hadn’t done before. I knew I wanted to wrap the pork tenderloin in bacon (because everything is better with bacon, right?!). I browsed Pinterest first to see what else other people were adding to that.   I saw a few recipes calling for brown sugar, and a few others using honey along with the bacon, but I decided that I was going to use both.  I thought it might turn out too sweet,  but honestly, I could have added even more!

My pork tenderloin ended up being two really big pieces so my bacon wasn’t fully wrapping at the bottom. I chose not to use toothpicks to pin the bacon and I did not brown it in a pan before putting it in the oven, like many similar recipes do.  I laid the tenderloins on a broiler pan and tucked the ends of each slice of bacon underneath.

Once the pork tenderloin was fully cooks, I turned the broiler on for about 5 minutes to crisp up he bacon.  This turned out to be easier than attempting to brown the bacon-wrapped tenderloin in a pan before putting it in the oven.  If you don’t mind a little soft bacon on the bottom of your pork, this is definitely the way to go!

If your pork is smaller than mine and you want the bottom bacon to be crispy, I would recommend pinning the bacon and browning just the bottom in a pan before putting it in the oven. Then, finish the top and sides in the oven under the broiler like I did.

I always want to hear what you guys think!  If you’ve made this Brown Sugar and Honey Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin, leave a comment or send me a message anytime!  Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Trim the fat from the pork tenderloin.
  2. Brush on two Tablespoons of the honey and sprinkle on the brown sugar. Wrap the bacon around the tenderloin, using toothpicks to pin into place, if necessary.
  3. If you want the bottom portion of bacon browned, heat a large frying pan over medium heat and brown just the bottom of the pork tenderloin to get the bacon on the bottom a little crispy.
  4. Transfer to a roasting pan. Brush on the remaining 2 Tablespoons of honey and sprinkle with more brown sugar if desired.
  5. Roast for approximately 1 and 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. At this point you can turn on your broiler for about 5 minutes until the bacon is browned and crisp, keeping a close eye on it the entire time to prevent burning. Let rest for 10 minutes before carving. Serve.

Mini Apple Pie Delights

Mini Apple Pie Delights Feature and Pin Photo

We love homemade apple pie in this house, yet I only make it a few times a year.  It’s not that hard, but I don’t care for peeling and slicing apples most of the time.  I should use my mom’s super brilliant idea of freezing the pies before baking, but I only ever think to do that after the fact.   In the meantime, these Mini Apple Pie Delights will have to do.  They literally take less than  20 minutes total and are really good!

All you need is an apple, crescent rolls, butter and a few spices.  I made a trial batch of these for myself and the boys and they disappeared within minutes, so I decided to make a double batch on Christmas morning and set them out for guests, along with fruits, cheese, cookies and all that good stuff.  Once again, they did not last long at all and were gone before anything else was even close to being finished!

Of course, once I have success with an idea, it makes me want to try a hundred different things using the same general concept.  One thing I am going to try is using pie crust instead of crescent rolls.  While I love a good crescent roll, and these are delicious as is, my absolute favorite part of apple pie is the crust, especially the bottom portion.  I don’t know about you, but I love how the apple juices and spices flavor it and make it softer.  You could also mix in cranberries or walnuts.  The possibilities are really endless.  Don’t be surprised if you see more mini pies showing up on the blog!  Please feel free to leave me a comment and share your ideas too!  I’d love to hear them!  And definitely let me know if you make these Mini Apple Pie Delights as written and what you think of them!  Enjoy!
