Lovelies! Whoa, the first day of fall was this week. Unfortunately, in LA, it feels more like summer, with temperatures predicted to get up in the high 80’s this weekend. That sucks for me because I can’t stop dreaming about chunky sweaters, beautiful brown boots and warm, cozy drinks.
So I took it upon myself to make a very “fall” drink, customized to the weather’s weirdness: an ICED Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s the taste of fall poured over ice, making it this unusual mix of refreshing and cozy.
This should go without saying, but this drink can also be made hot. I’m actually really looking forward to sipping on this in a month while sitting outside in a gigantic sweater.
Bright orange leaves and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are what dreams are made of. Believe that.
And now for a few thoughts on this recipe…

Umm…that picture up there is me totally jumping the gun on Fall.
But I need you to understand something. It’s serious. Are you ready? Okay, this is the thing: this entire blog has been built on the love for “cozy” food. Soooo….Fall is a huge deal for me. HUUUUGE. Think of it like the olympics of food blogging, for me. MA-JOR. Major.
It’s totally the most charming season.
There’s pea coats, trips to the apple orchard, pumpkin spice lattes, warm ciders, scarves, fluffy biscuits and cuddling. LET’S ALL CUDDLE!!!
I met Jessica a few years ago (gulp, maybe 3 years ago?), and she’s always been one of my favorite people in the food blogging community. Her recipes are fun, FUN!; her personality in person is exactly the same as her blog; and her photos make me want to leap into the computer screen and eat EVERYTHING she makes.
This book, Seriously Delish, is very much her in book form. Her personality shines through, there are tons of enchilada recipes (thank you, Jessica!) and the food looks slutty and gorgeous all at the same time.
It’s a keeper of a book. And I have a feeling I’ll be gifting it a lot this upcoming holiday season, which I don’t want to really believe is almost around the corner. Please, let’s not say the H-Word, T-Word or C-Word for a while. I can’t deal.
