Like every fall, pumpkin spice everything takes over the world, and I couldn’t help but share this amazing Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie recipe with you, along side a group of my favorite blogging friends! From pull apart pumpkin cinnamon rolls, to a healthy pumpkin spice snack, we got you covered! You’ll find all the recipes at the end of this post!

Coming back to my Pumpkin cheesecake brownies: they have been on repeat in here since late summer! It’s a perfect dessert for both pumpkin-everything-lovers, as the more reserved, only falling for chocolate types ( like my younger daughter).

Also, and that’s a big plus in my opinion, it’s super easy recipe, that you can whip up on a weekday afternoon! Even with kids around! Actually, let them help! And by help, I mean let them lick all the spoons!

What you’ll need:

  • brownie base ( you can do your brownies from scratch using your favourite recipe, or make a box brownies, like I did! ) 
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin pie filling 
  • 1 egg
  • 2 packages of cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1\4 cup chocolate chips 

Prepare a brownie base, don’t bake it yet.

Mix the soften cream cheese with pumpkin pie filling, brown sugar and one egg. Mix it all together well, and pour over the brownie base. Now bake for around 35 to 45 minuets on 350F. Don’t over bake!

Once the Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie is cooled down, melt your chocolate chips, and pour them over ; I usually use a small zip bag with a tiny hole, to get a thin layer.

Serve and enjoy! Jut be carful not to eat them all at once! They disappear very fast!

Easy and cheap fall decorating ideas

You don't have to shop a lot, to add that cozy fall vibe to your living room! 3 easy steps and a free print, to make your space fall ready!

It’s always the same, with each season change, I feel like I want to change everything in my home, and decorate everything around! I really feel that the best way to welcome the new colors that I see out the window is by adjusting the inside of our home too.

I just really believe that the way we live, and what we set our eyes on every single day, hugely affects how we feel and how we’re motivated! And that’s why my home decor is so important for me.

But at the same time, I don’t have unlimited founds, and I don’t feel like accumulating countless seasonal decoration from Target, only to store more and more boxes in the basement! And so I found these easy and cheap fall decorating ideas!

Because I believe that there’s plenty of other ways to welcome the change of colors, than with buying all the things!

Here’s how it work’s for me:

1. Change the textures and add warm tones.

While summer decor was all about blue airy accents, fall is about turning back to warm tones and colors. I choose yellows and natural tones, but you can go for reds, oranges, plums and deep greens too! I added textured pillows, a new rug fluffy rug from BabaSouk and blankets on every chair!

2. Change the print and add free printables.

This is the cheapest way to change the vibe of the space. Of course, you could go ahead and buy some and pricey amazing artwork, but you can also check my Pinterest printable board for some great free prints! Or you can shop on Etsy for inexpensive and whimsical finds.

Also, I’ve made a calligraphy inspired print: the October quote from Lucy Mound Montgomery, that you can download and print at the end of this post!

3. Add natural elements.

Nothing adds more texture and life as real branches, sunflowers and a couple of real pumpkins!

Adding natural elements is the easiest on your budget, and can add more charm then anything else! Because let’s face it, natural elements are the decor trend of the season!
