To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

PUMPKIN MUFFINS! BEST EVER!!
What's your idea of a perfect Fall meal?
Beef stew with dumplings?
A big pot of vegetable soup simmering away on a rainy day?
It all sounds so good doesn't it?
Well, for me, there is no better season, then to put
your best of the best recipes on your dinner table
and it's my pleasure to feature some of our family favorites
for your "must-make list!"
We are going to begin the season,
with our FAVORITE PUMPKIN MUFFINS!
Your home is going to smell amazing.....
the aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, spice and vanilla
will fill your kitchen with the most divine scent!
I love the idea of baking a special treat for
the little ones for after school....
1 3/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 15 ounce can pure
1/2 cup vegetable
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and place 12 paper liners into each well of a muffin pan.
Measure the flour, sugars, baking soda, salt and spices in a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, vegetable oil and vanilla extract.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together. Do not over mix, just stir until everything is incorporated into the batter.
Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Fill each cup to nearly full.
Bake your muffins for 25 minutes. These are marvelous served a bit warm!
A kiss of fall flavor makes these muffins
fit for a grand finale to a seasonal meal!
