#TDCLBlogtober14 Day 5 – Share your favorite Fall recipe

As you may have noticed I'm doing The DC Ladies Blogtober14 challenge.  Which is very different for me because normally don't blog everyday.  I guess that's why its called a challenge.  Today is share your favorite fall recipe.  This is hard because I don't have one.  I love all the flavors of Fall.  So instead I will share the recipe I found that I'm most excited to try.  This recipe came from RecipeGirl.com.  She has step by step instructions with picturesRecipeGirl.com
I love it when a recipe includes pictures.


Pumpkin Spice Latte

Yield: 1 drink
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 4 min
Do It Yourself version of Starbuck's delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte...

Ingredients:

1/2 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon unsweetened canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup hot brewed, strong coffee
2 tablespoons half & half cream
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar, or more to taste
whipped cream, optional
ground nutmeg

Directions:

1. In a glass measuring cup or microwave-safe bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, spice and vanilla. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes- watch closely and remove it from the microwave when the milk is hot and frothy.
2. Pour the pumpkin milk into a tall mug or glass. Add hot coffee. Pour in the cream. Add a teaspoon of sugar. Stir, and taste. Add more sugar, if desired.
3. Optional, but oh so good... add whipped cream on top and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Serve immediately!

Tips:

*Feel free to lighten up the recipe by using nonfat milk and fat-free half & half. It won't be as rich, but it will still give you that yummy pumpkin latte flavor.
*If you don't have pumpkin pie spice in your collection of spices, make your own! Mix equal parts of cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg- and measure from there.
