Secret Recipe Club
Time for another Secret Recipe Club! For those who haven’t seen my previous Secret Recipe Club posts, this club includes a group of bloggers who are assigned a different blog each month and secretly make a recipe to post on their specified reveal day. I look forward to my assignment email every month and discovering new blogs. It is also fun to see what someone chooses from your blog.
This month I was assigned Lynsey’s blog, Lynsey Lou’s. While she has no formal training, Lynsey has always been surrounded by food and learned to cook by watching her parents and grandparents in the kitchen. Cooking even became part of the foundation of her relationship with her husband and he still remembers her food from college. They have now been married for seven years and have a beautiful son. She says some of her greatest joy comes from seeing others enjoy her food. I can personally relate to this. This passion for food led to Lynsey starting her blog in June 2008 after being inspired by a few fellow bloggers.
Lynsey has an amazing assortment of recipes. She calls southern homestyle cooking her comfort zone, but is also creative and will experiment with gourmet recipes and other flavors. In keeping with the season, I made her Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate. Here are some other recipes perfect for Autumn: Brown Butter Pumpkin Latte Cupcakes, Maple Pumpkin Buttermilk Biscuits, Pumpkin Spice Waffles, and Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Blondies with Brown Butter Frosting.
Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate
The temperatures outside haven’t reached freezing yet, but it is starting to get a bit chilly in the mornings. This Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate was perfect with our breakfast. It takes less than 10 minutes to make, plus includes a little vegetable! Chad and Evan don’t like chocolate, so this is a nice substitute for the traditional hot chocolate. I topped off the mugs with whipped cream and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. You can also add mini marshmallows, grated white chocolate, or all of the above.
Want to make your own pumpkin puree? Here is a how-to guide.
