Pumpkin Spice Martini Recipe – Kudos Kitchen Style

The first time I’d had a pumpkin spice martini was on vacation while we were spending a little time at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California.

After my initial sip, I knew it was something I wanted to recreate upon returning home. The result is my version of a Pumpkin Spice Martini – Kudos Kitchen Style…and it’s a good one. I hope you’re ready! And, as always, please drink responsibly and NEVER drink and drive.

Easy Make-Ahead Christmas Morning Croissant Apple Breakfast Bake

As you can see from the photos and title, I’m featuring this recipe as a holiday treat. However, the first time I served this amazing breakfast casserole was in the summer when we vacationed with my husband’s family in Northern Wisconsin.

Even though I’ve named this recipe; Easy Make-Ahead Christmas Morning Croissant Apple Breakfast Bake, please make sure you make it throughout the entire year. It’s so good you won’t want to limit it just to the holidays! 😉

Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie

I thought I’d kick off #PumpkinWeek2016 with a bang this year and share with you this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie. The key to assembling the turkey crust so he doesn’t drown in all that luscious pumpkin filling is to bake the pumpkin pie partially before adding Mr. Tom Turkey on top. That way the custard pie will be set enough so that the turkey crust will sit on top of the pie, and won’t be eaten up and fall to the bottom of the pie.

Homemade Royal Icing Eyeballs with Video Presentation #HalloweenTreatsWeek

Eye would be remiss if eye didn’t share with you just how easy it is to make these Homemade Royal Icing Eyeballs. After all, you can’t have a spooky Halloween treat (in my opinion) without some glaring eyeballs watching your every move!

Of course, you can always purchase candy eyeballs at the store, but those only come in one size and shape, as if one size really fits all. Ha! By making your own candy eyeballs, you can tailor them to your specific needs and vision.

If hindsight really is 20/20, then I’m here to help you envision what’s possible!

Hauntingly Delicious Boo Berry Pie with Video Presentation #HalloweenTreatsWeek

Boo Berry Pie is a delicious mixed berry pie with orange zest and orange juice to kick up the flavor. To make things simple I’ve used a store bought deep dish pie crust and also a flat-rolled refrigerated crust for the easy cut out shapes.

If it looks scary or intimidating to make, I hope you’ll stick with me because I’ll walk you through the entire process of just how simple it is to recreate.

Healthy Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberry Side Dish with Pistachios

This dish of Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberries came about one night when I was contemplating a side dish to serve with some fish I was cooking.

Since I had strawberries in the fridge that I needed to use before they spoiled, I tossed some into the sauteed creamed spinach I was preparing. The completed dish tasted amazing, and it was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds!
