Sugar and Spice

Every fall, our adorable mom sends us care packages full of seasonal baking accessories (thanks, mom!)- cupcake liners, sprinkles, you name it! This fall was no different, and one day after work we returned home to find an amazing care package packed to the brim. Growing up, the three of us would bake at least every week, always fighting over who got to lick the spoon. Our mom made baking a tradition for any occasion and it is still one of our favorite activities every time we are together. Now that Jess and I both live together in San Francisco and our mom is still back in San Diego, baking just isn’t the same without her! Her thoughtful care packages give us a way to include her in each cupcake and cookie even though she may be 500 miles away. We couldn’t wait to use these cute cupcake liners and fall sprinkles, and what better way to celebrate fall than with pumpkin cupcakes?! We are pumpkin obsessed around here, and wait patiently for autumn to arrive every year so we can use it in just about every recipe. This time, we include both vegan and non vegan versions with maple and cinnamon frosting. Enjoy!

Fall Favorites

Growing up, fall in our house meant lots of baking with our favorite autumn ingredients. Our mom made peach crisp every fall and the crumbly, decadent peaches always left us wanting second helpings. This week, Jess shares a vegan, gluten-free crumbly peach crisp that is sure to be loved by vegans and non-vegans alike. Meanwhile, Nikki takes on a classic autumn favorite, apple pie, but adds her own unique twist. Enjoy!
