Hey everyone! Its been a while, I've been super busy with stuff. If you're not a fan of my facebook page, you should be! I've been posting cakes I have been decorating. So go check it out! :) 
Anyhoo.. I do have a new, simple recipe for you today! Fall is my most favorite time of the year for food. Nothing can beat the flavors and aromas that fill the air during this season. The weather is perfect, the world is all around beautiful. Ahhhhh. :) I love autumn. :)

Pumpkin is probably the single most popular flavor this time of year. So I'm jumpin' on the bandwagon with my super delicious Pumpkin Bread Muffins. :) 

Picture
Ingredients
1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil 
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 (15 oz) can of puree pumpkin

Picture
Directions
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a muffin pan with liners. I used pumpkin designed ones. :) 
1. Sift flour, baking powder, soda, and salt together. I sifted it onto a piece of parchment paper so as not to dirty an extra bowl, but do it however you prefer. :) 
2. In a large bowl, add the oil, sugar, and egg with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy. 
3. Add the dry ingredients and mix only till its combined. Don't over mix it! 
4. Scoop batter into muffin pans, 2/3 full. 
5. Add your mix ins! I made my muffins 3 different ways... option A: Butterscotch. I put a bit of butterscotch topping on top of the batter and swirled it in with a toothpick. I personally wish I would have used butterscotch chips instead... but they were still good. :) Option B: Chopped nuts. I used pecans... but walnuts would be good too. Add to muffin cups and mix in with a toothpick. ANNNNDDD... option C: my personal favorite, chocolate chips. Add them in the same way. SOOOO GOOOOOD. 
6. Bake  muffins for 16-19 minutes, rotating halfway through bake time. 
7. Remove from oven when they are done, Enjoy. :)

Hey everyone! Well, as I'm sure you've noticed it's been a while since my last blog post. Let me fill you in on whats been going on. Last Tuesday (August 28th) I got the call from my mom that said that my Grandpa Lloyd had passed. Most of you probably know from my recent posts that my Grandpa hasn't been doing well for a while. I would like to thank everyone, on behalf of my whole family, for all the thoughts and prayers. These last two months with him were truly a blessing.

Now that my week has finally calmed down some.. I do have an awesome recipe for you, of course. I'm surprised at myself that I haven't made something with cherries yet for you because I absolutely LOVE cherries. Hope you guys enjoy! 

Cherry Crumble
Preheat oven to 350

Picture
Filling:
3-3 1/2 cups pitted and halfed fresh cherries
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup spiced rum
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3 Tbl Agave or honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Directions
Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced to half (about 10-13 minutes). Set asside. 

Picture
Crumble:
1 stick unslated butter, at room temp
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

Directions 
In a mixing bowl, place the butter, brown sugar and flour. Using a fork , smash the butter into the flour and sugar. Add the oats, nutmeg and salt and continue to smash the butter with the fork until crumbles are formed. Place half the crumble in the bottom of a 9'' tart pan. (I used 2- 6'' tart dishes) Bake for 13-15 minutes, and remove from oven.

Pour your filling over the baked crumble. Top with the other half of the crumble you have set aside. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden, (rotate halfway through bake time). Excellent with vanilla ice cream. :)
