Pumpkin Spice Coffee


Yesterday morning, I had the Food Network on while I was in the shower and getting ready for my day. I love “The Kitchen” which is on the Food Network on Saturday mornings. If I happen to be getting ready at the same time “The Kitchen” is on, I make sure to have it on.

Yesterday, someone was using pumpkin pie spice for a recipe and Katie (who is one of the hosts on the show) mentioned that she likes to add pumpkin pie spice to her morning coffee. I do head to Starbucks for at least one Pumpkin Spice Latté between October and November. That day for me was last week. It was a little drizzly here and was the perfect warm-up on a chilly morning. I usually get a hot tea or plain coffee when I’m at Starbucks because I try not to drink my calories (except in wine … they say red wine is good for us, who am I to question, LOL?! I do enjoy a glass of red wine when I’m at book club or out with friends. I have a few book clubs, and a lot of friends, so I know I’m doing good things for my heart … a glass of red wine, great discussions and lots of laughs, also good for my heart.)

Anyway, back to my morning cup of coffee today. I remembered what Katie mentioned on “The Kitchen” yesterday morning and I really wanted to try that in my coffee today. Katie didn’t say whether she added creamer or not, but I always do.


I always add my creamer to my cup before adding the coffee. This ensures the creamer gets mixed in while the coffee is being poured in the cup. No need to stir! Today, I added the creamer and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice to my cup, poured the coffee in and enjoyed a wonderful cup of coffee.

I thank Katie for this fine tip yesterday morning, I’m now enjoying my second cup of coffee.



  • Creamer (I use fat free vanilla today, sometimes I use sugar free)
  • Large pinch of pumpkin pie spice
  • Coffee


  1. Add creamer and pumpkin pie spice to your favorite coffee mug.
  2. Pour in coffee.
  3. Stir, if you’d like.


Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
