homemade pumpkin coffee

If you’re swept up in the pumpkin-flavored craze, you may be dropping piles of dollars on coffee, lattes, and all the pumpkin things. Instructables user katvanlew can help you save money when it comes to pumpkin coffee because she’s figured out a recipe for making the beverage at home in a crock pot. She uses coffee, pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, and ground cinnamon in the brew, and it sounds like it would taste really good. If you try the recipe, please report back and let us know how it is.

animal crossing apron

When you’re making recipes from video games, there’s no reason to stop your theming with the food. The Wild Bunny takes it a step further and creates aprons to match whatever she’s making. For example, she recently made an Animal Crossing birthday cake that looks just like one from the cute game. To complement it, she made an apron like shop owner Tom Nook’s. Yes, it is adorable.

She’s taken similar approaches to games like Minecraft, BioShock Infinite, Metroid, and more!

The toughest part about following a recipe is always referring back to it while you’re cooking. It doesn’t matter if it’s on a recipe card, in a cookbook, or on a tablet, because when you need it it’s always halfway across the kitchen.

Italian designers Marina Cinciripini and Sarah Richiuso have come up with a solution in the form of temporary tattoos that will put the recipe right on your arm. They’re currently seeking funding for the project on Eppela where you can get these tattoos with traditional Italian recipes in packs of four for about $8.

apple pie in apple pie

The hardest part about making apple pie from scratch, or any kind of pie for that matter, is making the crust. It’s just time consuming. Instructables user Juanamac has come up with a way around that makes perfect sense: put it inside an apple! You just need puff pastry (you can buy sheets of it in the freezer aisle), apples, and other basic ingredients. Hollow an apple, put the filling in, add the puff pastry crust, and tada! Cute little apple pie inception!

klingon blood orange

One thing you’ve got to love about science fiction, it’s full of symbols. Star Trek has its share of them, and the Klingon design translates well to carbs. The talented folks over at Kitchen Overlord have taken inspiration from it and created Klingon Blood Orange Pull Apart Rolls. Tasty and doesn’t include real blood – it’s pretty much the best combination ever. The recipe definitely takes some elbow grease and time, but come on, Worf could do it, and so can you!
