Mini Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

22 Nov

Spice up Thanksgiving with these pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon frosting!

Ann Arbor Vegan Kitchen


A few years ago, I shared my favorite recipe with readers for Pumpkin Muffins, but since I recently created this Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting, these muffins have graduated all the way to cupcakes. My kids love them. Correction: LOVE them!

Allow me to backtrack for just a moment…

Kite Hill vegan cream cheese has been getting lots of attention lately, and there’s a really good reason for all this buzz. It’s delicious. What’s even more impressive to me is the ingredient list: almond milk, cultures, and that’s about it. The simplicity of ingredients and its delicate flavor actually inspired this delightful Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting recipe.

So here we go, just in time for Thanksgiving…the reintroduction of these pumpkin cuties, transformed into scrumptious mini cupcakes with this very easy and delicious frosting.

Hello Gorgeous: Wish List Makeup Products

14 Nov


I just attended the beauty trend event “Hello Gorgeous” at Bloomingdales in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I’m going to pass along the products highlighted for a flawless, chic look.

For skincare, Clarins super restorative serum was chosen to maintain your skin and reduce aging. Did you know that Clarins was the first plant-based cosmetic line? Clinque presented some sculpting products including a massage applicator. From Shiseido, ultimune was demonstrated.

Now you can spray on a foundation? Dior has air flash. It’s simple, fast and not sticky.

Lancome highlighted the Paris eye palette, while Estee Lauder demonstrated double wear makeup to go in a new innovative compact.

Of course, I made a purchase. My purchase was the Bobbie Brown serum corrector and concealer. Just what I need to get rid of the dark circles under my eyes and keep them bright.

MAC’s Holiday Magic Makeup

7 Nov


It’s not too early to think about holiday makeup. Deck the halls with lip gloss, glittering eyes and colorful hues with MAC’s newest collection. The packaging is as pretty as the product. I especially liked the set that comes in a mini clutch (below). MAC sums up the collection as Irresistibly Charming.



I like how Nordstrom highlights the collection. It’s so easy to see all the products. In the coming weeks, I will be posting about other makeup brands. What’s your favorite?
