Pumpkin Marshmallow Treats | My Baking Addiction

Pumpkin Spice Marshmallow Treats are over-the-top-amazing with the addition of a roasted Campfire® Giant Roasters and milk chocolate.

Pretty much as soon as I found out I was pregnant with Elle, I stopped cooking. Not because I didn’t want to, but because meal prep made me super queasy. The smells and textures of raw foods – especially meats – did a number on me almost immediately. Eric stepped up in a big way and began cooking almost all of our meals on his own. He’d flip through his grandmother’s cookbook for childhood favorites and he even got a little adventurous; cooking from online recipe sites and many of my fave food blogs. We kept a file of our favorites and Eric quickly developed a repertoire of delicious meals that were in heavy rotation throughout my entire pregnancy.

As you know, I’m not a trained professional. I’m a self-taught home cook and baker, but I’m pretty confident in the kitchen. However, after doing minimal cooking for almost 8 months, I felt totally out of my element once I started preparing our meals. After burning bacon, overcooking chicken and allowing numerous pots to overflow – I started to feel a lot less confident. And my knife skills – they went from pretty darn good to the skill level of 9 year-old with a butter knife. I remember prepping pepper steak and taking a good 10 minutes to cut up a few green peppers. After a couple of weeks, this girl finally got her groove back.
