Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins

Here they finally are!  I made these muffins a couple months ago and they were awesome!

My topping didn't some out like hers ( who knows where I went wrong?!) It just sort of sank into the muffins.  Haha

But they were definitely delicious and easy to make.  You should give them a try!

Find the recipe here.

I used regular (lactose free) milk and pumpkin from my freezer.  But everything else was the same.

Also if you need a good laugh, check these funny tweets out.  They killed me.  The picture of the little boy touching the giant ornament looks just like my youngest nephew.  He would totally do the same thing, too.  He's such a little rebel.

I hope you enjoy!  Happy baking!!!

Things I Think I LOVE!!

So now I feel like I'm making up for lost time.  2 posts in 2 days?!?!  I'm going to try to be better about posting more regularly.

Today's Things I Think I LOVE is about the holidays.  Things I definitely want or things I already have.  Are you ready?

1. Pillow - I have 2 red and white buffalo check pillow covers that I love for the holidays.  I think this truck postcard pillow would be so cute with them.  Maybe it will go on my list for Santa...

2. Ribbon - In my post earlier this week I had mentioned wanting to add buffalo check ribbon to my christmas tree.  This one would be perfect.  Now I just need to find time to go get it and my tree will be perfect!

3. Snowflake - This website is so fun.  Give it a try!

4. Cake Stand - I love the way a cake stand looks piled with Christmas cookies.  I will definitely be filling this up for Christmas this year.  We actually bought this cake stand for our wedding 4 1/2 years ago.  It is still so useful!

5. Candle - I know Vanilla Peppercorn sounds weird, but this candle seriously smells so good.  My sister is always burning it and it makes me want to go buy some.  She always finds the best stuff!

6. Bench - Ok, so, this one isn't holiday related, but I just love it. Nate and I are going to be building a mini mudroom area in our basement (main entrance from the driveway) and I would love a bench like this for setting bags or taking shoes off.  We both love the rustic industrial style, and for the price this might be the perfect option!

What are you loving right now?  Maybe if you're very good and ask Santa nicely he'll bring you your favorites!

Miss me?

Hi Friends!  I'm sorry I've been MIA.  This year is moving at the speed of light!  

I have a lot of updates for you.

I did make those pumpkin muffins I had mentioned in my last post.  I will add the recipe here later this week.  They were super yummy!  My niece and nephews approved!

In more recent news - the house is decorated for Christmas and the cookie baking is going to begin this weekend!

I'll check back soon to let you know what I plan to make.  Until then here's a picture of Chester from last night.  I still want to add a black and red buffalo check ribbon to this tree.  I'm not sure if it's going to happen this year or if I will just keep it as is.  We will see.

He loves to sit on the back of the any of you know how to get the cushions back to a regular shape?  Or should I even bother?  Oh well... until next time.

The Best Banana Bread and more fall baking!

Happy Monday!  Last week the weather in PA was so nice.  It was much cooler and less humid.  It has made me sooooooo ready for fall!

I have a confession...I LOVE fall.  Really, really love fall.  I love the weather, I love the colors, I love the decor, I love the fashion, I just love it all.

And, fall makes me want to bake.  Over the weekend I made my favorite simple Banana Bread.  This recipe is seriously so good and so easy!  Check it out:

Cream butter and sugar

Add wet ingredients
Mix until combined
Add dry ingredients and mix until combined
Put batter in a 9x5 loaf pan
Bake at 350 F for 1 hour
My trusty sidekick :)
Let cool slightly before removing from pan

Serve warm with a pad of butter and a glass of milk

Easy right??  Are you going to try it?

Cinnamon pumpkin muffins are on my mind for my next baking day! This will be a new recipe for me.  I'll keep you posted on how it goes.  Are you trying any new recipes for fall?? Let me know in the comments!

Things I Think I LOVE!

Hey everyone!  Happy Monday!  Did you all have a good weekend?  We had a picnic at my parents house and got a bunch of small things done around the house.  It was all around good. 

Today it's time for another Things I think I LOVE!  It turns out I think I love a lot of things.  Ha.  I'm surprised I'm not broke by now.

1. Wishbone necklace - Nate got me this necklace for Christmas last year.  I wear it almost everyday!  It comes in a few finishes.  I have the silver.  It's just so cute and every time I wear it and see my Nephew he makes wishes on it (usually for hugs from Aunt Heather, that wish always comes true!)

2. X rated hot dog fork - Nate and I got these for my dad for his birthday this past weekend.  They are so funny.  I found them on Etsy.  Some people are so creative!  He and my mom had a hot dog mania picnic so it was the perfect gift!

3.Swim Coverup - Last summer I bought a new swim cover up.  I like my coverups to have longer sleeves so I can control the sunburn.  This one is nice and light weight.  Plus I love the print.  Mine is the same style in a different color.

4. Wall art inspiration - Sarah from Life On Virginia Street refreshed her mudroom and the results are so inspiring!  I took one look at the large painting on the wall and thought "I can do something like that".  I love finding paintings I like and recreating them(with my own spin).

5. Slip on Sneakers - I ordered these slip on sneakers last week.  They are so cute and comfortable!  They can take me from summer to fall, which I love.  I refuse to buy clothes and shoes that I can only wear for a few weeks.  Plus these are a perfect neutral.
What are you loving right now??
