Fall Recipe Collection

Good morning!

Are you guys lucky enough to have a long weekend this weekend like I do?  I love Columbus Day weekend — smack in the middle of fall and there are usually lots of fun activities and so many autumn things to do.  And there’s nothing like a Monday off!!

In the spirit of one of my favorite fall weekends, I figured today would be a good day to post a collection of some of my favorite fall recipes.

Fall Recipe Favorite: Pumpkin Pecan Muffins

Yes, they are as good as they sound.

And as they look.  Drool-worthy, really.

  6. Pour batter into prepared muffin tin and bake on the center rack for 24 – 26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Let them cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
  8. Drool.

Why are pumpkin flavored things just so damn YUMMY!?

(Mom, this doesn’t mean to start your Christmas shopping now and give me all pumpkin related presents again).

Definitely a fall recipe must try!


Oh, and I’d be lying if I said these didn’t taste even better with a lil extra somethin somethin on top.
