Happy Monday, everyone!  I can’t get enough of the chocolate dessert cups I shared yesterday.  The cups are so versatile that I thought they deserved their own post, but I’m excited to share these babies with you today:  chocolate pumpkin pie pudding cups.  They’re a cute and fun twist on a Thanksgiving staple.

CQC: I don’t like vegan food…

When I was in high school, my first job was working summers at the same company where my dad worked.  The job itself left a little to be desired, but it gave me the opportunity to ride to and from work each day with my dad and to regularly go out for lunch together —…
