The Perfect Housewarming Gift & How to #SmudgethatSh*t

My family and I have recently moved into a new home, and first on my to-do list was a cleansing ritual. Thus this beautiful floral smudge stick from Mystical Blossoms was the perfect housewarming gift. Now, I know, despite how trendy sage has become on Insta, you may be hesitant, or perhaps you just have no idea how one goes about performing a cleansing. To sum it up, it's about being intentional about the kind of energy you want in your home. It's simple...do you want good vibes? Do you want to let go of the bad vibes? Great...then as they say on instagram, let's #smudgethatsh*t.



For a quick cleansing, you can use a smudge spray, for example, like this Namaste Smudge Spray; or you can use incense, herbs, a fragrant simmer pot...it doesn't have to be something specific. The point is that by adding something tangible to a prayer or meditation, you turn that prayer or meditation into a ceremonial act, and that will make you more confident and intentional about your thou…

Easy Whipped Pumpkin Cheesecake


I'll be honest, I don't always make everything from scratch. I consider myself an advanced cook and a dedicated foodie. However, since I've had children, life gets crazy, especially during the holidays

Sometimes I need a last-minute dessert for a dinner party or holiday meal, but I'll be damned if I pick something up from a bakery on the way to a party. And even whenever I do have time time make something totally from scratch, sometimes I just don't feel like it.

My new go-to recipe for a last-minute dessert that will wow guests is my semi-homemade, no-bake pumpkin cheesecake.

INGREDIENTS

*2 C pumpkin puree

*2 C whipped cream cheese

*1 tsp ground cinnamon

*2 tbs pumpkin pie spice

*1/3 C light brown sugar

*1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla extract

*pre-made graham cracker crust

INSTRUCTIONS

*Blend ingredients on high until smooth and pour into graham cracker crust. Garnish top by sprinkling with nutmeg and cinnamon. Chill at least 30 minutes.


If you're making these for a dinner party you're hosting, pamper your guests with individual mini pies. You should be able to find pre-made mini graham cracker crusts in the baking aisle at your local grocery store, or you can make them in a jar like this one reader did here.

  1. I take it there's a bit of reorganization going on, hence several blogs turning up all at once?

  3. Did you use 2 cups of the "whipped cream cheese" that they sell OR did you use 2 cups of regular cream cheese and whip it?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi! I use the prepackaged "whipped cream cheese" for this recipe. You could use regular cream cheese, but using the pre-whipped cuts out an extra step. Whether you buy it whipped or whip it yourself, it has to be whipped to get that light, fluffy texture. As far as price difference, I've seen a lot of bloggers suggest making it whipped at home is cheaper, but the generic brand at my local grocery store has pre-whipped that's actually cheaper, so it depends on what's available in your area. If you already have plain cream cheese on hand, just let it come to room temp and mix on high w/whisk attatchment for a minute or so until it's nice and fluffy before you add in the other ingredients. Enjoy!
