Welcome to this month’s edition of Homemade Homemaking! I’m honored to be hosting the Healthy 2Day Wednesday link-up from Day2Day Joys this week!

For October, I thought it would be appropriate to post a recipe for homemade pumpkin pie spice.

When I was a newlywed, it seemed like I was always running to the store for something I needed for a recipe.

Whether it was taco seasoning or pasta sauce, it never occurred to me that I could just save gas and time and make my own!

Pumpkin pie spice was one of those things. Then one day it hit me–I had all the spices I needed to make my own spice blends!

Without further ado, here’s today’s recipe for pumpkin pie spice. Scroll down to check out a round-up of some yummy pumpkin recipes–and join in the link-up from Day2Day Joys!


Pumpkin Pie Spice


  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 4 tsp. ground cinnamon


Mix all the spices together! Store in an airtight container and use in one of the following recipes![/print_this]

    MILF cam websites verify that anyone can make money via the internet, providing that the
    services offered have adequate demand. In my opinion the best craigslist personals are funny
    ones. Video chat likewise has whenever messaging feature and
    that is ideal when mic will not be available. What much more would 1 want when
    the live lady performs your each and every want.
