KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

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!
