Hello! It’s been a while since I posted, and the last time we were in the middle of a HUGE move back to our hometown of Ottawa. We are back now… it’s been about 2 weeks and we’re happy about it 🙂 M has started work and I’m looking for work.. in my free time, I dabble in the things I love most. Zoe, knitting, baking and shopping!? (I need to furnish AND decorate my new house after all).
Anyway, we got here around Halloween time, and although we didn’t go out, we did carve pumpkins! YAY! no photos though, fail on my part. With pumpkins around comes baking, and I’m happy to say I (for the first time) peeled and boiled pumpkins to make purée to be used in recipes (yay!) While I was peeling them, I thought countless times how bad I felt for my mother who peeled and cut 5 BIG pumpkins every year to make pies after halloween festivities. I promise to not complain when I start doing them for our kids, HA!
Today, I made delicious (looking) chocolate-chip pumpkin muffins. They JUST came out of the oven and I can’t wait to taste them… yumm….but it’s dinner soon so I have to wait at least until dessert comes around!
Here’s the recipe, it’s based on 2 different blogs and I made a few changes they are noted in BOLD in the recipe below.
4. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the pumpkin muffins comes out clean.
