It’s that time again for everything Pumpkin Spice

As fall approaches corporate American puts pumpkin spice flavoring into lattes, donuts, and anything that has no legs to run and hide. Some of us (like me) like those spices in pumpkin pie but in little else. Others can’t get enough. To help you get your quota here is a simple recipe you can mix together to put on your oatmeal, in your waffles, heck even your hamburgers if you must. Tweak as you wish and I can hardly wait until winter when you can sprinkle it on your eggnog. You’re welcome!

Pumpkin Spice Mix


  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Combine all ingredients. Store in an airtight container.
