Pumpkin: Good For More Than Lattes

Pumpkin: Good For More Than Lattes

Break out the long scarves, brown boots, and pumpkin spice latte but don't forget to try these pumpkin recipes to get your fall fix.

Now that it's finally fall, everyone's favorite food is back! For those of us who love pumpkin but get tired of drinking a pumpkin spice latte, here are a few ways to mix it up while still getting your daily pumpkin fix.

1. Pumpkin Peanut Butter Pretzels

This combination may seem strange which may be why I have yet to give it a try. However, when three of my favorite things: pumpkin, chocolate, and pretzels are put together, I'm more than willing to give it a try.

2.Pumpkin Streusel Bars

For those of you how haven't heard of Sally's Baking Addiction, please, go check it out. Her recipes are easy to follow, they work, and, did I mention that they taste as good or better than they look? These bars are one of my personal favorite and a must make item of the season.

3. White Chocolate Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

It's a cookie mixed with pumpkin and chocolate, it doesn't get better than that. Just try it.

4. Pumpkin Muddy Buddies

This one may be slightly out there but if Sally created it then it has to be good. Or if that isn't enough reason to, this snack food just looks festive.

5. Pumpkin Pie

Even though there are countless other pumpkin recipes that you could make to survive the pumpkin season and get your pumpkin fix, a pumpkin pie is a staple and can't be forgotten. This pumpkin pie recipe combined with Sally's famous crust may just make the perfect pumpkin pie.

So, now that you've realized that there are more ways to use pumpkin than simply in a Starbucks latte and you're stomach is rumbling, it's time to get baking! A special thank you to Sally from Sally's Baking Addiction for creating or recommending these pumpkin must-have desserts.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
