Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Welcome to the Fall Mini-Series – Post #1!

After a few weeks off to get things tidied up and back into a somewhat normal routine {not sure if that ever really happens with a family of 6 …. but I sure like to try every now and again :)}, I decided with fall fully upon us it would be fitting to add a little pumpkin pie spice to the mix and cross another item off my list! So simple, I am not sure why it’s taken me this long but here it is … short, sweet and to the point since I have been a slacking and need to make up some ground!

It really is just a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves. and allspice … so kinda like a taco seasoning you can go heavier on the flavors you are head over heals for and light on the ones you are not.
