Fall is calling you with these easy individual servings of pumpkin custard topped with a crunchy pecan crumble with a homemade bourbon whipped cream.  Oh, and did we mention they are drizzled with caramel sauce!
Easy Pumpkin Pecan Custard with Bourbon Whipped Cream
I hope you are in a pumpkin mood because including today, I've made three new recipes this month - first up was Overnight Pumpkin Oatmeal followed by Spicy Pumpkin Spice Almonds and today we have these individual servings of bliss!  If you love pumpkin pie (and who doesn't?) then today you are in for a treat with these pumpkin custard individual desserts.  A smooth pie texture topped with a pecan crumble, topped with a fresh bourbon whipped cream and drizzled with caramel sauce.  Dare I say it is better than a pie and you don't need to make crust!  Grab a fork and dig in.

I hope by now you have put away your white clothes (yes, no white after Labor day!) and are turning your thoughts to fall.  Because once your turn your calendar to September, it is getting to be cooler days and all access pumpkin season!  I can't think of a better way to welcome fall (and get your day off to a great start) than making overnight oatmeal.  Just toss the ingredients into a big bowl, let sit overnight and enjoy in the morning.  I bet you can even sleep in a little later too -  now that sounds really good to me too.

Mini Peach Upside-Down Cakes
Today I'm sharing for your taste bud's delight, a fresh peach upside-down cake that comes together in a snap.  If you haven't had a chance to make anything with peaches this year then this dessert is for you.  Peaches are one of my favorite kinds of fruits and since it is summer, I am able to find ones that are perfect - nice and juicy.  While I do love to eat them as is, they are also great to bake with.  This recipe also makes two - one for yourself (of course!) and one to share.  It's always best to share :)
