Brown Butter Pumpkin Rum Cake
This post is a present for you: a piece of one of the best cakes I’ve ever made (have you noticed I’m remaking it in 800 variations? That’s always a sign it’s good) and a reminder of things our kindergarten teachers tried their best to teach us. Bless their hearts, they didn’t know how we would be tested. Some of us have failed. But we can always get back on track.
Here are 6 reminders of things we learned in kindergarten:
Brown Butter Pumpkin Snack Cake with Crackle Icing
BROWN BUTTERRRR is good enough, y’all. Good enough to make this Brown Butter Pumpkin Snack Cake with Crackle Icing INCREDIBLE. But there’s this other amazing trick I learned that makes this cake one of the best I’ve EVER eaten . . .
Pumpkin Bread Stuffed with Chai Cheesecake
It always feels like when I have the most stories to tell, I find myself silent under their weight. When Mike and I broke up years ago, I just lost all my words for awhile. My thoughts were traveling a million miles a minute, making all the connections, tying the hum of a rusty refrigerator in Missouri to a gauze of silence in Denver. I have those threads sewn up in my heart but the stories take too much work to form. Not too much, but more than I’m ready for each week.
Moving to California has been the same way.
Brooklinen provided me with a set of their Classic Hardcore Sheet Bundle for free to review, but my opinions are always my own.
Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread
Four years ago, I had just moved into my new apartment in Cornelius, North Carolina, and made my first recipe in my new kitchen: German Chocolate Cheesecake. Today, I’m surrounded by boxes in varying states of unpackedness in my new apartment in San Diego (La Mesa, to be more specific), California, and I just made my first recipe in my new kitchen: Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread! Most of my apartment is still in disarray, but I’m eager to share with you the ONE room I’ve finished, my bedroom. I’m super proud of how cute it turned out! I always love when people post tours of their newly decorated spaces, so I thought you might like to see mine.

Best Guesses About What My Upstairs Neighbors Are Doing Right Now:
- They’ve been evicted and told they only have until 3 a.m. to move their belongings out. They are bowling enthusiasts and therefore have roughly 856 bowling balls in varying shapes and sizes, including a limited edition My Little Pony ball with a bowling pin cutie mark. To save time, they’re rolling, tossing, and occasionally drop-kicking their ball collection out of the apartment.
