Easy Autumn treats & snack to make at home!

 Autumn has arrived, and that also means Pumpkin Spice Lattes has taken over!! BUT! I’m here to tell you that there’s so much more to enjoy than the traditional pumpkin drinks. I am going to be walking you through easy treats and snacks to make this fall. I feel like autumn is the perfect time to stay indoors and just bake or cook, with these small little recipes you spend less time making and more time eating. So without further adieu, lets get started! 

Candy Coated Caramel Apples: 

chocolate-caramel-apples

Prep Time: 8 minutes * Cook Time: 2 minutes * Ready in: 25 minutes
Caramel apples are a perfect fall treat and these are especially exciting being rolled in a variety of candy. I remember making these when I was younger and they are the perfect snack for autumn. The caramel is so full-flavoured and only requires patience and stirring until it reaches the right temperature to swirl the apples.

Ingredients:

  • 6 pink lady apples
  • 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels (unwrapped)
  • 2 tablespoons of semi-skimmed milk
  • ice-lolly sticks

for candy coating:

  • 1 bag of regular crushed up m&m’s (or mini m&m’s if you can find them in the uk)
  • any candy or nuts of your choice for coating (preferably crushed)

Step 1:

Remove the apple stems and insert the sticks into the tops of the apples. Be sure the apple is sturdy on the stick. Add the candy and/or nuts to individual medium-size bowls to allow plenty of room to dip and roll the caramel apples.

Step 2:

Line a baking sheet with wax paper and spray with non-stick spray (for the dipped apples). Place all unwrapped caramels and milk in a pan on medium heat. Microwave for 2 minutes and stir well.

Step 3:

While they’re still hot, dip each apple promptly in caramel sauce until well coated. When an apple is coated dip and roll each one into the candy/nut of your choice in the individual bowls one by one.

Step 4:

When each apple has been caramelised and coated, place on prepared baking sheet from step one to set and cool. Enjoy!

Step 5:

Storing and Eating Caramel Apples: Ideally the apples would be eaten after making them, however, they may be wrapped in cling film and stored in the fridge for up to a week. When eating them out of the fridge, allow 45 minutes to 1 hour for the apples to warm up before eating (the caramel is very hard out of the fridge). The apples can be eaten on the stick or cut into segments.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

pumpkin-seeds

Ingredients:

  • The seeds of 1 whole pumpkin
  • Seasonings and spices of your choice
  • Olive oil
  • Sea-salt
  • Large baking tray

Some of my seasoning favourites are:

  1. paprika powder, cayenne, cinnamon and sea-salt
  2. Tex-Mex spice, sea-salt and olive oil
  3. Pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, cayenne and sea-salt

Although these are my favourites, feel free to experiment with whatever you think would go well.

Step 1:

Scrape the seeds from your pumpkin with a wide, flat spoon.

Step 2:

Pull away the strings of flesh and then rinse the seeds clean in a bowl of water.

Step 3:

Spread the seeds evenly over a large baking tray. Put a few good glugs of olive oil over the seeds and sprinkle whatever seasonings and spices you want over them. Make sure to add a good amount of sea-salt as that is essential in this recipe. Mix well together so the seeds are well coated.

Step 4:

Bake at 180°C/350°F/gas 4 for around 10 minutes, or until seeds are lightly golden brown.

Step 5:

Leave to cool before you get your fingers into them and once cooled store in an airtight container, ready for when your friends come round.

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

sugar-cinnamon-nuts

FYI: These nuts make your house smell amazing!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 full bag of raw almonds (400g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • Caster sugar (200g)
  • Room Temperature margarine (100g)
  • Large baking tray

Step 1:

Mix together the caster sugar and ground cinnamon in a medium-size bowl, mix until incorporated to make cinnamon sugar for the outside coating of the almond.

Step 2:

Mix together the margarine and almonds in a pan on low heat until the almonds are coated and there is no longer visible margarine in the pan and take off the heat.

Step 3:

Add in half of the cinnamon sugar mixture to the pan and mix until the almonds are coated. Now spread the almonds equally on a large baking tray and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar all over so each almond is covered.

Step 4:

Bake at 180°C/350°F/gas 4 for 10-12 minutes, you can add more cinnamon sugar for sprinkling if you think it is needed and I hope you enjoy!

And Finally…

Pumpkin Hummus:

Pumpkin-Hummus-3-lighter.jpg

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound diced fresh pumpkin, peel removed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 head garlic, the pointy end cut off by about ¼ inch to expose the cloves
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2-3 tablespoons homemade tahini paste (it’s the best, plus super easy and cheap!)
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup for just a touch of flavor (artificial will make the hummus sweeter and won’t add as much maple flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Roasted pumpkin seeds, olive oil and a sprinkle of cinnamon for serving
  • Hummus should taste good with chips, crackers or toasted pita bread

 

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Step 2:

In a bowl, toss together the pumpkin, oil and cumin. Spread the pieces out on a lined cookie sheet and add the head of garlic. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until the edges of the pumpkin and garlic have become a little blackened.

Step 3:

Place the pumpkin, garlic and garbanzo beans in a food processor along with the tahini, olive oil, maple syrup, lemon and salt. Blend until smooth, adding more olive oil as necessary. Add more tahini, maple syrup and salt to taste.

Step 4:

Scoop into a serving bowl drizzled with some olive oil and sprinkled with some pumpkin seeds and a touch of cinnamon. Serve with chips, crackers or toasted pita bread.

PUT YOURSELF IN AN AUTUMNAL MOOD WITH THESE MOVIES & TV SHOWS

AS MANY PEOPLE KNOW TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN, SO WHAT BETTER WAY TO CELEBRATE THAN WATCHING AUTUMNAL MOVIES AND TV SHOWS PICKED OUT BY YOURS TRULY. I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. WHERE THE WEATHER STARTS GETTING A BIT COLDER, YOU STAY IN DOORS WITH A HOT DRINK OF YOUR CHOICE, A BIG CHUNKY JUMPER, WATCHING EITHER A MOVIE OR TV SHOW AND NOT GET JUDGED FOR NOT GOING OUTSIDE. THAT’S WHY I CREATED THIS LIST, SO YOU CAN SIT AT HOME, CHILL-OUT AND LET THE AUTUMN SEASON CONSUME YOU WHILE WATCHING THESE RAD MOVIES AND TV SHOWS. 
WHEN I THINK OF AUTUMNAL MOVIES I INSTANTLY GO TO 80’S MOVIES ‘CAUSE WHEN I WAS YOUNGER WE WOULD ALWAYS HAVE A LOT OF FAMILY TIME IN THE AUTUMN SEASON. DURING THE DAY ME AND MY BROTHER WOULD WATCH AMERICAN FOOTBALL WITH DAD WHILE MUM WOULD MAKE TEX-MEX SNACKS OR GO TO THE FIELD NEAR US AND PLAY AMERICAN FOOTBALL AS A FAMILY, THEN IN THE EVENINGS WE WOULD WATCH A LOT OF MOVIES TOGETHER. MY DAD WOULD ALWAYS STICK ON AN 80’S COMING OF AGE FILM (OR TRY TO PUT ON BAND OF BROTHERS, BUT WE WON’T TALK ABOUT THAT) THIS STARTED MY LOVE FOR THE JOHN HUGHES 80’S COMING OF AGE MOVIE ERA. ALTHOUGH, I THOUGHT THAT MAYBE I SHOULD ONLY INCLUDE ONE JOHN HUGHES MOVIE ON THIS LIST AS THAT ISN’T EVERY-BODY’S CUP OF TEA, SO I’LL PUT THAT ONE LAST. HERE IS THE AUTUMNAL MOVIE LIST:

MOVIE 1: BEETLEJUICEbeetlejuice.jpg

BEETLEJUICE IS A CLASSIC 80’S FILM DIRECTED BY THE BRILLIANT AND AMAZING TIM BURTON. THE FILM JUST HAS EVERYTHING. MICHAEL KEATON PLAYS BEETLEJUICE AND IS REMARKABLE IN THIS, HE IS THE PERFECT BLEND OF DARK, CREEPY AND FUNNY  I KNOW SOME MAY DISAGREE WITH ME ABOUT THIS BEING A AUTUMN MOVIE, BUT, IT IS. IT HAS YOUNG WINONA RYDER IN IT, ANY MOVIE WITH WINONA RYDER IN IT IS A AUTUMN FILM FOR ME (HEATHERS, GIRL INTERRUPTED, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS… ALL MOVIES THAT GET AN HONOURABLE MENTION IN THIS LIST). TIM BURTON JUST HAS A WAY WITH MAKING MOVIES I WANT TO WATCH IN THE AUTUMN SEASON AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS ABOUT THEM, THEY ARE THE BRILLIANTLY BIZARRE AND CREEPY THINGS I NEED WHEN WATCHING ANYTHING HE MAKES. THEY WILL BE MAKING A REMAKE OF THIS SOON, BUT BEFORE YOU THINK OF HOW BAD IT WILL BE, KNOW THAT WINONA RYDER AND MICHAEL KEATON WILL BE IN IT! IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE FIRST BEETLEJUICE THOUGH, I URGE YOU TO GO AND WATCH IT NOW!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, I PROMISE! 

MOVIE 2: HALLOWEEN TOWNhalloweentown

OKAY, THIS MOVIE IS PERFECT FOR HALLOWEEN LOVERS WHO GREW UP IN THE 90’S / EARLY 00’S. I REMEMBER GOING OUT TRICK OR TREATING WITH MY BROTHER COMING HOME, STICKING ON DISNEY CHANNEL, BINGE EATING OUR SWEETS WE JUST EARNED AND THIS MOVIE BEING ON EVERY YEAR WITHOUT FAIL. EVEN NOW IF DISNEY CHANNEL ARE PLAYING IT NEAR HALLOWEEN, I HAVE TO SIT THERE AND WATCH WHILE I GET NOSTALGIC FLASHBACKS. IT IS A GREAT MOVIE AND THE BEST THING ABOUT IT IS THAT IT APPEALS TO PEOPLE OF ALL AGES. EVEN THE SEQUELS TO HALLOWEEN TOWN ARE PRETTY GREAT, I MEAN THE LAST ONE THAT DIDN’T EVEN HAVE THE ORIGINAL MARNIE IN “RETURN TO HALLOWEEN TOWN” WASN’T BRILLIANT BUT LETS JUST NOT TALK ABOUT THAT ONE… THE OTHER 2 SEQUELS WERE PRETTY SOLID AND I WOULD HAPPILY HAVE A NIGHT IN THIS AUTUMN/HALLOWEEN WATCHING ALL 3 MOVIES. 

MOVIE 3: THE BREAKFAST CLUBthe-breakfast-club

THE BREAKFAST CLUB, NOW WHERE DO I START… THIS MOVIE IS ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVOURITES AND I COULD WATCH THIS 4 TIMES IN ONE DAY. IT’S WHY I DECIDED TO CALL THIS MAGAZINE BLOG ‘RUCKUS’ AS ONE OF ITS LINES IN THE MOVIE IS “CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE RUCKUS, SIR?” (YOU’LL HAVE TO WATCH THE MOVIE TO GET THE LINE). IT IS DIRECTED BY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTORS OF THE 80’S IN MY OPINION, THE ONE THE ONLY: JOHN HUGHES. THIS MAN IS THE KING OF COMING OF AGE 80’S MOVIES. IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS AND LOVE JOHN HUGHES FILMS, WATCH IT NOW! IT STARS MOLLY RINGWALD THE 80’S ‘IT GIRL’ WHEN IT CAME TO CASTING IN MOVIES, SHE WAS THE GIRL JOHN HUGHES ALWAYS WENT FOR. NOTHING MAKES ME HAPPIER THAN SITTING ON THE COUCH WITH A HOT CHOCOLATE AND PJ’S ON RECITING EVERY WORD OF THIS MOVIE WHEN IT IS COLD OUT. IT’S JUST THE BEST. THE CASTING IS AMAZING AND THE WRITING IS SOME OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER HEARD. IT HAS THE PERFECT SETTING; IT’S COLD OUTSIDE, IN A REAL HIGH SCHOOL. IT IS FUNNY AND HAS DEEP BITS IN IT AS WELL AS THE BEST ONE LINERS EVER. YOU JUST WON’T BE ABLE TO GET ENOUGH OF IT IF YOU LIKE MOVIES LIKE: FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF, PRETTY IN PINK, SIXTEEN CANDLES, WEIRD SCIENCE, PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES OR EVEN HOME ALONE, JOHN HUGHES DIRECTED THEM ALL AND DID AN AMAZING JOB DOING SO.

 

TV SHOW 1: GILMORE GIRLSgilmore-girls-poster

THE SPIRIT OF GILMORE GIRLS IS COFFEE, RED AND ORANGE LEAVES, LIGHT JACKETS AND JEWEL TONES. EVERYTHING ABOUT IT SCREAMS AUTUMN. FOR ME IT IS A MORNING SHOW WHERE I SIT THERE IN MY PYJAMA’S WITH A COFFEE AND MY BREAKFAST ON A CRISP COLD DAY. ALTHOUGH THEY DON’T SHOW IT AS MUCH ON TV ANYMORE, NETFLIX HAVE JUST PICKED IT UP AND YOU CAN NOW WATCH IT WHENEVER YOU WANT ON THERE!! I’M SORRY IF YOU ARE A GUY AND WANT SOME GUY AUTUMNAL SHOWS, BUT I DON’T THINK THIS SHOW IS THE ONE FOR YOU. THE BEST AUTUMNAL EPISODES ARE:
  1. SEASON 1 EPISODE 7 “KISS AND TELL”
  2. SEASON 1 EPISODE
  3. SEASON 3 EPISODE 8 “LET THE GAMES BEGIN”
  4. SEASON 4 EPISODE 22 “RAINCOATS AND RECIPES”
THEN AGAIN IN SAYING ANY OF THIS ALMOST EVERY EPISODE IS AUTUMNAL.

TV SHOW 2: FRIENDSfriends-poster

AGAIN FRIENDS IS ONE OF THE MOST AUTUMNAL SHOWS I’VE EVER WATCHED. WITH ITS COFFEE SHOP, AUTUMN LEAVES ALL OVER THE PAVEMENT AND PERFECT 90’S FASHION SENSE, I WANT TO LIVE IN THE FRIENDS WORLD IN 90’S NEW YORK. EVERYTHING IN THE SHOW IS AUTUMN TO ME, IT IS ALWAYS ON THE TV PLAYING OLD RE-RUNS AND TO ME THAT IS PERFECT. I LOVE JUST SITTING THERE AT THE END OF MY DAY WINDING DOWN AND WATCHING A COUPLE EPISODES OF FRIENDS. ALMOST EVERY SEASON THEY HAVE A THANKSGIVING OR HALLOWEEN EPISODE, ITS GREAT! SOME OF THE BEST EPISODES TO WATCH TO GET INTO THE AUTUMN SPIRIT ARE:
  1. SEASON 1 EPISODE 7 “THE BLACKOUT”
  2. SEASON 1 EPISODE 9 “THE ONE WHERE UNDERDOG GETS AWAY”
  3. SEASON 1 EPISODE 17 “THE ONE WITH TWO PARTS?”
  4. SEASON 3 EPISODE 9 “THE ONE WITH THE FOOTBALL”
  5. SEASON 5 EPISODE 8 “THE ONE WITH ALL THE THANKSGIVING FLASHBACKS”

 

BUT AGAIN IN SAYING THAT, MOST FRIENDS EPISODES ARE VERY AUTUMNAL OR FESTIVE.

TV SHOW 3: STRANGER THINGSstrangerthingsposter

OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. STRANGER THINGS IS A NEW SHOW ON NETFLIX THAT THEY CREATED AND IT IS SO GOOD!! IT IS PERFECT FOR THIS AUTUMN SEASON, THOUGH THERE ARE ONLY 8 EPISODES TO THIS TV SHOW; IT IS ADDICTIVE!!! I’VE GONE BACK AND RE-WATCHED IT AND SOMEHOW IT WAS BETTER THAN THE FIRST TIME I WATCHED IT. IT IS SET IN THE EARLY 80’S AND THE COSTUME DESIGN AND SET DESIGN IN THIS IS OUTSTANDING. ALTHOUGH THIS SHOW HAS PRETTY MUCH ONLY JUST CAME OUT, IT GOT A GLOWING RESPONSE AND HAS ALREADY BEEN PICKED UP FOR A SECOND SEASON. THE TIME OF YEAR IN THE SHOW IS AUTUMN AND IS SET IN NOVEMBER 1983, IT IS THE PERFECT THING TO BINGE WATCH ON THE COUCH LATE AT NIGHT TO CREEP YOURSELF OUT. I CAN’T RECOMMEND STRANGER THINGS ENOUGH. IT’S LIKE IF STEPHEN KINGS BOOKS AND JOHN HUGES MOVIES HAD A BABY IT WOULD BE THIS TV SHOW, I CAN’T WAIT FOR SEASON 2 NEXT YEAR. EVEN IF YOU DON’T HAVE A NETFLIX ACCOUNT, SEE IF YOU CAN BORROW SOMEONE ELSES BECAUSE YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS SHOW! (THE SHOW IS OVER A WEEKS PERIOD SO EVERY EPISODE IS AUTUMNAL)
 

JAMES BURRAGE EP LAUNCH PARTY:

 
JAMES BURRAGE IS AN UP AND COMING SINGER/SONGWRITER FROM COLCHESTER, ESSEX. JAMES RECENTLY WON THE COMPETITION OPEN MIC IN 2014 AND SINCE THEN HAS DONE MANY GIGS TRAVELLING AROUND WITH HIS EXTREMELY TALENTED BACKING BAND, GETTING HIMSELF KNOWN IN HIS LOCAL AREA IN AND AROUND COLCHESTER.
HE IS GOING TO BE PLAYING AT MANY DIFFERENT VENUES THIS SUMMER, INCLUDING THE VERY POPULAR, JIMMY’S HARVEST FESTIVAL, HELD AT JIMMY’S FARM IN IPSWICH ON THE 23RD – 24TH OF JULY. THIS WILL BE JAMES’ SECOND YEAR PERFORMING AT THE FESTIVAL. BURRAGES MUSIC IS DESCRIBED AS “HIGHLY ADDICTIVE AND IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO DANCE TO”. 
RECENTLY JAMES HAS PUT OUT HIS OWN 4 TRACK EP TITLED ‘PURE GOLD’. THIS EP IS ALL SELF-WRITTEN MATERIAL AND IS MADE UP OF: 
1. AIN’T NO LOVER
2. PURE GOLD
3. RUMOURS 
AND THEN THE CROWD FAVOURITE… 
4. THE VIEW.
JAMES HAS AN AMAZING BACKING BAND THAT MAKE YOU WANT TO GET UP AND DANCE. THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THE WHOLE BAND IS MAGICAL AND IT SHINES THROUGH IN ALL OF THEIR PERFORMANCES. TO MAKE UP THE BAND THEY HAVE: LOUIS TAKOOREE ON GUITAR, ON BASS NOAH HENRY THEN YOU HAVE BEN PORTEOUS-BUTLER ON KEYBOARD AND JACK AMES ON THE DRUMS. ALL OF THE BAND WORK SO WELL TOGETHER AND IT REALLY DOES MAKE FOR THE PERFECT SOUND.
THE EP LAUNCH WAS HELD AT THREE WISE MONKEYS IN COLCHESTER. THE BAR WAS PACKED FULL OF PEOPLE WAITING FOR JAMES AND HIS BAND. JAMES HAD THREE SUPPORT ACTS FOR THAT NIGHT WHO WERE TRULY AMAZING AND GOT EVERYBODY EXCITED FOR JAMES TO COME ON. THE FIRST WAS AMBER BURGOYNE WHO IS A SINGER/SONGWRITER. HER PERFORMANCE WAS BREATHTAKING, SHE HAS A VERY AMY WINEHOUSE-ESQUE  VOICE AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL. THE NEXT BAND WAS BOAT RICH WHO WERE VERY POP-PUNK AND HAD A REALLY COOL SOUND. THE LAST SUPPORTING ACT WERE VERA LONES, WHO ARE VERY WELL KNOWN AROUND COLCHESTER AND BROUGHT IN A BIG CROWD, THEIR MUSIC MADE PEOPLE REALLY DANCE AND GOT THEM EXCITED FOR JAMES TO FINALLY COME ON. AFTER VERA HAD FINISHED PLAYING JAMES GOT ON STAGE AND THE CROWD WENT METAL. HIM AND THE BAND DID THE 4 TRACKS OFF OF THE EP AS WELL AS A FEW OTHER ORIGINAL SONGS THEN FINISHED OFF WITH SOME COVERS OF THE SONGS: MOVE ON UP, RED AND BLUE LIGHTS, FIRE AND IN ONE EAR. ALL IN ALL THE BOYS DID 10 SONGS INCLUDING ENCORES. I THOUGHT THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT AND THE CROWD THOUGHT SO TOO. AS JAMES PERFORMS ACTIVELY LOCALLY AND IN THE SOUTH EAST INCLUDING LONDON, QUITE A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE KNEW THE SONGS FROM THE EP. THE CROWD ESPECIALLY KNEW THEIR FIRST DEBUT SINGLE, THE VIEW AND HAD A SING-ALONG AND DANCE DURING THE SHOW. 
THE NIGHT TURNED OUT TO BE VERY HOT AND SWEATY BUT PRETTY GOD DAMN AMAZING. I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE TO GO AND SEE THEM IF THEY ARE PLAYING NEAR YOU OR IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN COLCHESTER! 
JAMES HAS  JUST LET OUT HIS SUMMER TOUR POSTER WITH ALL OF THE DATES, AND HERE IT IS:13312793_10209300792541433_4162782522657662485_n
