I am so excited that it has finally cooled off enough in LA to get all fall inspired with recipes. While it’s not quite scarf and boots weather here yet, I know we have all embraced the slightly cooler weather and have been busy in the kitchen baking. One of the things I love about fall in all the pumpkin recipes. When I was growing up during fall we always had pumpkin bread around. A loaf would easily get devoured in a day around the house. The smell of pumpkin anything baking is just such a great smell and really rings fall for me. So today we have another way for you to utilize one of falls most favorite ingredients: Pumpkin Spiced Waffles. I really love waffles and realized that I don’t really make waffles that much, but this recipe will be sure to change that. This really is such a perfect fall breakfast recipe. You can also check out McCormick.com for more fall inspired recipes that are just as good! Enjoy and stay warm!-Teri
