Perfect Things Women in their 50’s Pledge to Do Differently!

 Perfect-Things-Women-in-their-50s-Pledge-to-Do-DifferentlyTurning 50 is a milestone for most women. Society lets you know that it’s the crossroads for you and your body. And, that’s when you pledge to change the belief people have taught you all your life.

Your kids are all set to enter college, and your parents are aging. You may encounter several problems in marriage, or there may be challenges in your job. It, indeed, is a stressful time.

You also note that your body isn’t as resilient as it was when you were younger. Thus, you need to take steps of your lifestyle habits. And that’s when you need to make some positive changes to your routine.

Health and well-being experts say that it’s a time for self-reflection when women crosses the 50 year mark. You, as a woman, may begin to think about your life purpose and what it takes to lead a happy and fulfilling life.

So, are you ready to lead a good life that you’ve been missing all along? If yes, read about the possibilities:

  • Exploring Oneselfs Education:

Women have always let down their dreams and aspirations to be put off for their family responsibilities. However, now that women over 50 have fulfilled all their duties, some say yes to exploring their education, learning something new.

For instance, a dentist in her mid- 50’s prefers to master reading comprehension. She says that she needs to read something a trillion times before she’s able to understand something. Thus, taking professional classes always seems to be a way out. However, now that she has her own time, she wants to control her weakness and improve her comprehension.

And, that’s when women tend to be strong and independent after they educate themselves.

  • Extending More Grace to Oneself:

Breathing before reacting and understanding that you don’t always have an opinion on every single thing is a part of growing up. This piece of advice comes from a woman who held a high-pressure job for a training organization.

Women often possess feelings of being left out. And, that’s the reason they fight, or are shut down to be heard. Know that self care for women over 50 comes when women learn to procure grace into each situation. And, that comes with taking a deep breath and slowing down is vital as it allows room for cortisol and adrenaline rush through the system.

Women believe when experts say that by doing this, you tend to reduce drama, conflict, and chaos in life, which in turn proves to deepen your relationships.

  • Trusting Oneself and Talents More:

An over 50’s best-selling author says she saw herself to what her parents and friends always told her. And that’s what led her to a satisfying life. She further exclaimed that if she were to change anything, she would trust her instincts and talents at a younger age.

Thereby, now that she’s in her 50’s, she would no longer be a girl behind the chair. Instead, she’ll transform. She says that she’ll never hear a person pleading with her to say a no. Also, she says to do what she feels like and will surround herself with positive people and resist those that suck the life out of her.

Final Thoughts- Comfort and Wisdom Comes with the Evolution of Time

Psychologists say that there’ll be times when women need a lot more than just advice for overcoming their struggles. And, that’s when the answer is the passage of time for balancing the challenges, which come as you turn the 50’s.

Many women over their 50’s say if you wish to do things differently, it is vital to take a pause and enjoy all that’s coming your way.

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another
  2. bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Stir
  3. into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in pecans. Fill six
  4. greased or paper-lined jumbo muffin cups three-fourths full.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, pecans and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.

  7. the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from
  8. pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 6 muffins.


Since I have only made the recipe once, next time I would like to try applesauce in place of the white sugar and I would make these into smaller muffins cutting the calories per serving.

Still get that same great taste in smaller serving if you can control yourself. Me...hum, its the crumb topping that I like!

Hint I have recently read in recipes, use some brown sugar to sprinkle on top of the muffins it crystalizes and makes a crispy top.

Also if you dont have buttermilk you can use 1/2 milk or almond milk and 1 tsp. lemon juice.

Also if making small muffins I used 400 degrees for 15 minutes Large Muffins 375 for 25-30 minutes when toothpick inserted comes out clean. You know your oven so these are suggestions from my experience

Pumpkin Handpies

Pumpkin-Hand-PiesI have a supply of pumpkin I bought on sale and need to use it before this year’s supply is available and I was in the mood to bake for my grandson, really I don’t need an excuse but he loves my goodies and is always ready and because he likes toaster pastries and since we all know they have ingredients that are not so healthy for us, I went in search for recipes similar to toaster pastries to make. He kept talking about squash and pumpkin so this is perfect.
I used the store-bought pie pastry from Pillsbury, which means faster to the finish and just the right thickness. These were easy to make and taste great, their small and just right to hold for eating. It could be used in school lunch and could change up the filling for fruit filling, sugar-free jam, or fresh fruit compote thicken with a bit of cornstarch and sugar.

Pumpkin Handpies


  • For the Filling:
  • 1 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Ready Made Pie Crusts
  • Icing:
  • I cup powder sugar sifted
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla


  1. Make the filling stirring all ingredients together in no special order.
  2. Pour into a oven proof dish or pan and bake in oven at 400* for 15-20 minutes until a custard like consistency. Remove from oven and cool.
  3. Reduce temperature to 350*
  4. I smoothed the pie crusts and cut into circles using a cutter the size of a large tuna can. I actually used a Pampered Chefs Pie cutter-crimper.
  5. I was able to make about 14 using the remainder of crust and re-rolling and cutting until I used up all the pie crust.
  6. When the filling was cool I placed about a heaping tablespoon of filling in the center of the circle, folded over and crimped the edges. If you dont have a crimper you can use a fork to seal the edges.
  7. Place on parchment paper to bake for 25 minutes at 350*
  8. Let cool on wire racks.
  9. To make icing combine the 3 ingredients until smooth
  10. Drizzle with icing and cool.
  11. Once completely cooled, I placed mine in a tight fitting container, layering with parchment paper.
  12. These are so good and you can serve these with whipped cream or just by themselves. Delicious!

For the ingredients for the filling, I used the recipe from Center Cut Cook The filling is pre-cooked before going into the pastry so it is easy to handle. I might add it is not as sweet as a pumpkin pie filling, which is also a good thing as I’m not a fan of sweet filling and many times I reduce the amount of sugar in a recipe. And to make my task even easier I use the Pampered Chef pie cutter and crimper I have had for over 20 years and never used, lol So now the recipe Pumpkin-Hand-Pies-SM.

If you need to make the crust here is the simple recipe.

    • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
    • ½ tsp table salt
    • 1 cup salted butter, diced and chilled
    • ½ cup very cold ice water
    • 1 egg, beaten with 2 tsp water (for egg wash)
    • coarse sugar for sprinkling

Make the Dough: In a large bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the diced cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, with small chunks of butter still visible. One tablespoon at a time, add ice water to the mixture until it holds together. It should stick together when pinched but not feel sticky. Work dough sparingly with cold fingers or pastry cutter, but do not overwork the dough. Form 2 dough balls, wrap in plastic and chill at least 1 hour. Original Recipe from Once Upon A Recipe
