Halloween in New York City

There’s nothing I love more than decorating for the holidays.

I used to deck out my entire apartment in Halloween critters, light up owl candles and make my annual Halloween themed wreath.

This year, it crept up so fast that I didn’t really make time to do anything special but bake – attempt #1: pumpkin pie (turned out decent) / attempt #2: pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (spectacular fail).

The muffins were especially disappointing since I was really excited for them (a coworker had brought hers in and they were AMAZING) so I did my best to replicate.

I even used my new digital food scale in an attempt to get all the flour measurements as accurate as possible.

This is the pumpkin chocolate chip recipe I used and I’m definitely going to try again because the recipe writer promises they are the best muffins ever and mine version.. wasn’t.

I mixed up pumpkin pie mix with the regular pumpkin pie canned stuff so I think something was off with the sugar.

Ugh, I really am a terrible baker… (no surprise, I got this bread machine for my parents and so far their experiments are equally tasteless haha)

Anyway, I also love seeing everyone else’s decorations and couldn’t resist snapping a couple pictures of these gorgeous brownstones around the city.

Happy Halloween!


Do you guys have any fun things planned? Also I’d love if anyone had a good pumpkin recipe to share :)
