Maple-Pumpkin Pie Bars Recipe

This post is sponsored by JELL-O.

Can you believe that the holiday season is here? I know I say this every year, but how did it get here so fast???

At any rate, it’s time to start thinking about holiday gatherings and most importantly – holiday FOOD! The food is really the best part, right?

Here’s the deal, though – if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen cooking and baking. Yes, we want our recipes to taste delicious, but don’t want them to take hours to put together. How can we spend time with our guests if we’re stuck over a hot stove?

Desserts are no different, either, even with them being the most important part of a holiday meal. (in my opinion anyway!) Dessert is something that we don’t treat ourselves to every day, so it’s a moment to be savored. So, is it possible to prepare a yummy dessert that doesn’t leave you in the kitchen all day?

Yes, it is!

I have put together a delicious dessert that takes traditional pumpkin pie and adds a special WOW of maple flavor and JELL-O Pumpkin Spice Pudding! It’s super simple to make and the best part – you can eat it with your fingers. (your kids will love that!)

    It is a safe product that is widely used in lotions and other cosmetic products to color and
    hydrate the skin. Do this daily and in time you will
    notice your armpits getting fairer. Though Taser products might not be best for everyone to use, it can be
    perfect to have if there is an immediate threat
    to your life and you are not comfortable with carrying a gun. There
    are a number of systems available for at-home spray tanning.
    The harmful effects of these methods are making
    people to go for fake one. Did you ever desire to have
    a faultless Hollywood smile. Just gently rub the wipe over the
    area and watch the darkness fade. Sun Lab spray tan has been providing many different types of spray tanning solutions
    to salons and individuals for many years. When tanning the
    face, have the client shut their eyes, take a deep breath and
    then you should begin tanning at the forehead and work down. Once your skin is dry, apply a moisturizer all over your body.

    Testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
    which slows down or stops hair growth and produces weaker, shorter hair.
    This is because targeting the hair shaft without damaging the pigment of the skin can be
    quite a tricky process. Certain shampoos, soaps, other body products and flea powders can cause allergic reactions to your Yorkie, resulting in loss of hair.
