Taste of the Sisterhood – Get your pumpkin on | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I don’t know about you, but when’s the temperatures start turning a little cooler, I am all about baking. More often than not, my baking contains some degree of pumpkin-ness.

I looooooove me some pumpkin. Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Spice Latte… Now I’m drooling.

And do you realize how much of a nutritional power house pumpkin is?

It gets it’s amazing orange color from Beta carotene, it’s loaded with potassium, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin C and FIBER and is very low fat.

Really, you should just bathe in it.

O.K. So bathing in it is really not an option. So I’ll leave you with this recipe instead. These are seriously the best muffins I have ever made. The kids cheered yesterday when they got home from school and found these cooling on the counter.
