Happy Halloween friends!
Hope everyone had a safe and fun-filled Halloween weekend, filled with mountains of sugary sweets! The last few months have been a whirlwind… but we are finally getting back into the swing of things.. well, sort of…. I have a new kitchen aid! No, not another electric mixer… just an amazing guy that I get to call my husband who has promised to be my lifelong ‘kitchen aid’. He is the best =)
Stuffed with pumpkin & cheese filling.
I love the scent of pumpkin spiced baked goods.
But adding carob chips makes it ten times better.
Here’s to you fall… I’m not a fan of how much it rains and really dislike chilly mornings… never a good way to start the day. But I guess a warm oven, filled with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves almost makes up for it.
I love the smell of pumpkin bread baking in the oven. There’s just something about this particular combination of spices that is uniquely awesome.
Sunday alreadyyyy? Ahhh… weekends pass by so fast…. So I had a GNO yesterday (girls night out, incase you didn’t catch that… ahha I had no idea what that meant either till yesterday!) and my two friends randomly mentioned that they check my blog everyday? =P ahhaha and I feel bad cause I don’t update this blog THAT frequently… sorry guys that you have to keep looking at my old entries lol… so… decided that I should do another post to keep you two interested =P
I’ve been wanting to make these muffins again just because they are so tasty and have some nutritional value to them… they are actually so good… tinge of spice/ sweetness…. Last time I made these, I discovered that I can actually finish a whole dozen of them by myself… yes… I know what you are prob thinking… oink? lol)… they are called Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins… my new favorite muffin recipe!… And no, I haven’t been saving a can of purred pumpkin since October! Decided I wanted to try this recipe about a month or two ago, so don’t worry, this pumpkin isn’t super old.. Unfortunately, Superstore only sells canned pumpkin in these honking huge cans… it’s a lot of pumpkin… real bang for your buck lol. Anyhow, I couldn’t use all that pumpkin in this recipe, so I split the can up into containers and froze the pumpkin for later use… convenient!
