Moist and DELICIOUS Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins! You won’t believe how easy this recipe is! My family considers these the best pumpkin desserts! These are easy to turn into a gluten free recipe too!
I’m on a muffin kick right now. My favorite muffins of the moment are the Fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins and these Pumpkin ones. I swear they can’t last in my kitchen with me around. These chocolate chip muffins here make for a happy breakfast.
For this chocolate chip muffins recipe, I’m using brown sugar instead of regular white sugar. I find that brown sugar adds a bit of a depth to muffins and brownies.
I start by mixing my wet ingredients. Later in I sift the dry ingredients and combine it with the wet ones. I have added cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg in my dry ingredients. That’s why these chocolate chip muffins are bursting with flavor and some sweetness.
Add in the chocolate chips to the batter. Pour into a muffin tray. For added goodness, I sprinkle in chocolate chips at this step too. This makes the chocolate chip muffins look so much better when they come out. You can instantly see the chocolate chips. So much eye-candy!

I love pumpkin pies. I just don’t love it, I LOVE it! Thanksgiving to me means this delicious sweet pie. It’s really the only time of the year I make a full pie and eat the entire thing. Ok, I lied about that part, I do it more than once a year.
So with us picking so many pumpkins from our garden, I decided to make my favorite pumpkin pie from scratch. From seed to pollinating to picking to baking – this is completely made out of love.
The pie is so tasty due to the freshness of the pumpkin! This is one of those recipes where it’s so near perfect I probably won’t ever try another pumpkin pie recipe again!

Easy step by step recipe instructions on how to make Stovetop Cinnamon Vanilla Granola! Once you realize how easy this stovetop healthy homemade granola recipe is to make, you’ll never buy any low carb cereal in the store again!
Do you love granola or granola bars?
I know a boy who does. It’s my other half, Matthew. He loves it.
Last week Matthew became obsessed with granola again. He goes through these spells of loving it. There was a time last year where he was ready to have his midnight snack in bed and he realized he was out of granola.
What did he do? Did he pick to eat something else? No, he got on his bicycle and ran to the grocery store at midnight to buy more granola!
Talk about dedication.
So yesterday we ran out of granola again. I went to the grocery store and I couldn’t get over the prices of it. Can someone explain why granola is so expensive? Seriously, $8 for 10 ounces? That’s crazy!
Healthy Homemade Granola
So after I got over (or didn’t get over) my sticker shock, I decided to head back to my kitchen and make my own healthy homemade granola. The benefits of making your own granola are that it’s much cheaper, you control the ingredients and you get to throw on your kitchen apron.

Peanut Butter Blossoms
These peanut butter blossoms are major yum. They’re moist, but they still have a slight crunch to sink your teeth into. The peanut butter flavor adds a creaminess while the delicious raspberry jam on top adds a sweetness. Creamy, Sweet, Slightly Crunchy – are you wanting a thumbprint cookie yet?
When I made these cookies last week, I had no idea that I was going to be this addicted to these cookies. At one point, I told Matthew to hide them from me. But before he did it I put all the cookies in my hands and ran away. Please, don’t take away my cookies.

Oh whoopie pie!
Whenever we visited a market (and to this day) I stock up on these delicious pies. Right there in the market my eyes close, the outer world shuts down. Only me and my whoopie pie exist. It’s a beautiful moment.

100 Calorie Brownie
I’m obsessed with this 100 Calorie Single Serving Brownie! If you’re like me then when you make brownies, it’s a batch. There’s 2 of us who live here and the cats can’t eat chocolate, so what do I have to do? Ok, I have to eat them all. Remember these black bean brownies? Yeah, I would eat them all if they were nearby!
I mean if not, they go bad and we wouldn’t want that. I mean, ok, I could share with friends, but I could also not share with friends and just eat them all myself. This is great, but also very bad.

The healthy dessert recipe is easy to make and is a great way to eat your vegetables! A powdered sugar glaze is poured on top once baked! Everyone in my family LOVES it – even toddlers!
This weekend there were many surprises in the garden. The monster pumpkin plant just won’t stop growing. There was a 5 pound bag of potatoes waiting for us under the soil. Carrots were pulled. Jalapeno peppers were picked. Cucumbers were spotted.
These are all vegetables I was hoping for, but maybe in a few weeks…. but in typical garden fashion, they make their own rules and showed up to the party early. I couldn’t have been more happy to see them!
I saw a few baby cucumbers growing on the vine last weekend but somehow those babies transformed to multiple large cucumbers in just a few days, ready to be picked and enjoyed. My Half Sour Pickle recipe and Cucumber Tomato Salad is a favorite way to use cucumbers, but I was trying to figure out how to bake with them.
Baking with Cucumbers!
This Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread was created because of that! This bread is similar to Zucchini Bread, but instead is made with grated cucumbers. After the bread cools, a delicious powdered sugar glaze is poured on top to make it really special. This is our new breakfast recipe that I’ll be making weekly until the cucumbers finish in the garden.
This is one of my family’s favorite cucumber recipes – perfect for Mom and Dad, but also perfect for toddlers and kids! Even my 1 year old loves a piece of this for breakfast in the morning!
HOW TO make the BEST Pumpkin Roll With Cream Cheese Filling- my most requested Thanksgiving dessert! This delicious homemade Pumpkin Roll recipe is easy to make and walks you through the steps on how to make it. The roll is so moist and delicious! Includes how to make video!
The first time I made a Pumpkin Roll years ago I was ecstatic. There was so much preparation and fear in the roll. For those who have made a roll I think you can all remember your first time, whether it was a success or a flop. I researched it profusely online watching rolling videos, looking at step by step blog posts, very intimidated by the rolling process.
Easy Pumpkin Roll Recipe
How was I supposed to roll the cake without cracking it? How was I supposed to add the cream? What is cheesecloth? And how was I supposed to get the cake out of the cookie sheet without having it stick at all losing big points in presentation and pretty factor (we all want a pretty roll).
So I made the roll, I had it timed, I had my supplies ready and the first time – it was a success. My heart was racing during that very short time frame from getting the cake removed from the cookie sheet (hot!) almost immediately out of the oven, onto damp cheesecloth and roll it (hot!).
After it was rolled, I let out a big sigh of relief. I might have even fell on the kitchen floor in victory. Actually that’s probably what I did, I am very dramatic when it comes to baking success. I’m just so darn happy.
How to make a Pumpkin Roll from scratch!
-Don’t let the cake stick to the pan when baking it. This is a big important factor. You have a very short time when you remove it from the oven and flip it upside down to flop onto the cheesecloth. If it sticks, the cake will fall apart, a little or completely. What saves this? PAM. Pam is my hero. What a great name too, right? 🙂

Fresh Carrots Recipe
Aren’t they just beauties? I just can’t get enough of fresh carrots. There’s nothing like the taste of a carrot that was just picked. Sometimes I nibble on one as soon as I pick it, I just can’t help myself. So I took the carrots down to the kitchen and pondered… What to make?
For dinner I made this Roasted Carrot Soup (by the way, it’s delicious!) but then I also wanted carrots for dessert!
I was going to make carrot cake, but I’ve had a real craving for donuts lately so I decided to mix the best of both worlds – cake and donuts!

These donuts basically require the same ingredients as carrot cake.
You’ll need egg, orange juice, melted butter, vanilla, brown sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and allspice. And then you’ll need shredded carrots!
The vanilla glaze on top is a tried and tested recipe that I use all the time! You make it with milk, vanilla extract and powdered sugar.
