It’s September, so that means it’s time for pumpkin spice everything! Call me basic but I love a good beverage with pumpkin flavor in it. It’s the official taste of autumn for me.

Today I’m sharing a fall recipe using pumpkin pie syrup from Torani. This flavored syrup is such a fun and easy way to level up any beverages, hot or cold. I can’t wait to use it for all kinds of recipes this season. It’ll even be great to just spice up a regular old cup of coffee with a quick pump of syrup.

I’m excited to share about my experience with Xoby Organics today. Xoby Organics is an online marketplace that delivers organic groceries straight to your door. It’s amazing! Rather than spending hours running to multiple stores to put together a full organic shopping list, Xoby has all of the products I need in one place… and I don’t even need to leave my house to get them.

xoby organicsYou can order from Xoby organics in just a few easy steps:

1. Add Your Products to a Box

You can create multiple boxes and label them for specific things. For instance, I created my box called “Laura’s Pantry” because all of the products were things I needed to add to my pantry for future cooking and baking. You can have a separate box titled “Baby” if you’re planning to shop for all baby food and baby products. You get the idea.

2. Choose Your Delivery Schedule

Although you can shop from Xoby for a 1-time purchase, you can also set recurring shipments. If you want the deliveries to keep coming, you get to choose your own delivery schedule. You choose the frequency. You’ll never run out of your favorite products!

3. Choose a Delivery Address

You can have the boxes shipped to your home, your work, your mom’s house, or wherever you desire! You can have different boxes delivered to different places.

4. Set Your Payment Information

You can set a unique payment option for each box. They all get stored in your account so you don’t have to enter them each time.

They make it so easy to purchase all of your favorite organic products.

xoby organicsFor my first box, I ordered some everyday pantry needs as well as some organic baking supplies that I can use over the holidays. I’m excited to start baking with coconut flour, pure cane sugar, organic chocolate, and other goodies. I also ordered some ingredients for making white chicken chili.
