Pumpkin Spice Irish Coffee

How to make pumpkin spice irish coffee for fall #fallrecipes #irishcoffee #pumkinspiceeverything #pumpkinspice #coffeerecipes

Pumpkin pie spice is one of the quintessential flavors of fall.

Although you can buy containers of this popular spice, it only takes a couple of minutes to whip up your own using ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Use what you need and store the rest in an airtight container for several weeks, if it lasts that long!

Last Bite of Summer with Mayfield Creamery Ice Cream

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Mayfield Creamery. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Mayfield Creamery

As the final days of summer wind down, my family is trying to savor every last scoop of summer fun. Weekend adventures, family time outdoors and preparations for a new season have kept us busy. Realizing that soon we will be in the midst of back to school, football season and cooler evenings have made me crave the flavors of summer. I can’t help but gobble up tomatoes fresh from the vine, the sun, tea and of course, ice cream!

My family seems to be grateful for my summer flavor cravings because they are getting to try some amazing flavors from Mayfield Ice Cream. Maybe it is silly, but sometimes when I dig into a dish of a classic like Vanilla, it is like I can taste the summers of my youth.
Bowl of Vanilla Ice Cream from Mayfield Creamery
I love passing that experience on to my family. There is nothing quite like Mayfield Ice Cream. They use top quality ingredients including those with no artificial growth hormones. This makes a big difference in quality and creates a flavor exactly like I remember as a child.
Mayfield Creamery Ice Cream
Luckily for my family, I do not feel that ice cream is a summer only thing! As the season’s change and the days grow colder, I will dish up a classic flavor like vanilla or chocolate, or maybe something fruity and fantastic like Banana Pudding Ice Cream from the Mayfield line, and I will savor the flavors and the memories of summer, long after the season is gone. Visit Mayfield’s website to view all their delicious flavors and to find a store near you. In South Carolina, Mayfield is available at Bi-Lo, Food Lion, and Publix.

If you are a year round ice cream fan like I am I would love to hear your favorite seasonal flavor for fall!
