This single serving cake is pumpkin flavored, with swirls of cinnamon sugar throughout and finished with a pumpkin pie spice cream cheese icing. It’s my new favorite pumpkin treat this fall.

In fact, I’ve already made it three times this week. Just to make sure the recipe was correct of course. ;-) Two months ago I created a Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake which I just adore. It looks cute, tastes great and totally satisfies my cravings for a gooey fluffy cinnamon roll. And then as I was making some pumpkin recipes, I thought it might be really fun to try to make a pumpkin version.

I’m so happy I did because I think I love this version even more. I had a lot of fun playing around with it, even making a giant one in a wider mug, so that it looks just like a cinnamon roll. Look at the gooey cinnamon sugar swirls! What is it about something so simple as melted butter and brown sugar that is so gloriously delicious?

The icing also has pumpkin pie spice mixed in and you can see the flecks of spice.

I’ve got a question. Outside of Halloween, do you answer your door unless you are expecting someone? Because I don’t. 99% of the time if the doorbell rings unexpectedly, it’s a salesperson/stranger so I don’t answer the door. The other night, someone knocked on our door. It was almost 9pm and we weren’t expecting anyone, so I told Mr. K not to answer the door. Of course, he was curious, so he peeked through the window and as the person was leaving, he recognized our neighbor.

Is there anything better than a freshly baked blueberry muffin? How about one that is only 122 calories?

I recently made these low calorie blueberry muffins, replacing sugar with Born Sweet® Zing™ Baking Blend.  Zing™ Baking Blend is made with a combination of stevia leaf extract and pure cane sugar and has only 5 calories per serving. It bakes and browns just like sugar but with fewer calories.

I’m always looking for clever ways to cut down on calories, especially since I bake so often and consume so many of my baked goods, so I was definitely curious to see how well Zing™ Baking Blend would work.

Eggslut is a very popular, egg-focused breakfast and lunch place, located in Grand Central Market (Los Angeles). It’s been high on my to-try list after reading about all the hype and seeing their breakfast sandwiches fill my Instagram, Facebook and other social media feeds.

I was warned the line would be long, and it was. You can spot Eggslut as soon as you enter, but finding the end of the line is another story. We took a video to give you an idea of how crazy this line is.

That being said, it actually moved faster than I would have guessed. I think we waited about 40 minutes and after we placed our order, we got our food in about 10 minutes.

The menu is fairly limited, with less than a dozen items to choose from.
