Easy No Measure Pumpkin Cheesecake


1 1/2 cup of graham cracker
2 tbsp of sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) of butter, melted

24 oz. cream cheese (3 packages), softened
1 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin
2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla extract
3/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

For the crust, combine crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Press onto the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake for 7 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. If you prefer, you may use a pre-made crust. This recipe makes enough filling to fill 2 premade pie crusts.

In a mixing bowl, whip the cream cheese and dulce de leche until light and fluffy. Mix in the pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg until thoroughly incorporated. 

Pour into the cooled pie crust. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the sides are set. Cool for 15 minutes. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Remove from springform pan and serve.

Since purchasing a white button down shirt from Janie and Jack for my son to wear at his little man mustache bash (outfit shown below as look 1), it was an instant wardrobe staple. Not only should grown men have a classic white button down shirt in their closet but so should little men. Here are five ways my little man wears his.

Little Man Mustache Bash

For our little man’s 2nd birthday, we threw him a mustache bash. What better way to celebrate than with shots and cigars?

Well… dessert shots

and pretzel cigars that is.

For fun, guests were able to decorate their own little man.

Cookie Decorating

Games included “Pin the Mustache on Miles” and “Name the ‘Stache.”

Here are some of our cute little guests.

Happy Birthday to our Little Man!

Cookie Bar

The 1 gallon glass jars and 1/2 gallon glass jars were purchased at Target.com. The 6.5 inch bamboo tongs were purchased at Sur La Table. The green storage bin was purchased at Babies R Us.

Tip: You may want to line the decorative paper with parchment paper especially if you are using super absorbent paper or super oily cookies. For reference, see cookie jar at the top right… lesson learned.
