That is an interesting combination of flavors! I love how sweet it looks all wrapped up!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Oh swoon. I can't even tell you how good that sounds to me. I haven't eaten since breakfast and I haven't had one pumpkin anything yet. Might have to go hunt down a gluten-free recipe for something like this.

Beth Gales said...

I seriously mix a can of pumpkin with a Pillsbury low sugar cake mix and 1/4 can of water (nothing else) for a yummy, low calorie healthy treat!

Ellie said...

Hi Koralee,

The muffins sound delicious and love the beautiful photo.
I often make a big pot of pumpkin soup in winter or like it roasted in the oven.

Happy Thursday

This image is sooooo cute, both images are. The top image in your side bar too.You brought a lovely little Halloween into your cozy home, Koralee. I have to steal your idea of wrapping things up in a recycled net bag ;D We do not celebrate Halloween that much in the Netherlands us you do in Canada and the US. Though shops sell more stuff every year. Have never eaten something pumpkin -y, but the combination with a touch of chocolate makes me want to as soon as possible.
Sending you bunches of love for a happy Thursday, my friend, Sweet dreams for now. It's early early morning here and I hear #3 tiptoeing the stairs.... xxxxxxx

Tina Eudora said...

I like mine on my face! I use it as a scrub on a facecloth and because of the high concentration of fruit acid it exfoliates perfectly and naturally...:)
I also love to just warm it up with butter and have it with supper instead of potatoes.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Sounds delightful! I guess I like my pumpkins made out of clay! heehee! Enjoy your day! ♥

The Garden Bell said...

I'm here... I just pulled into your drive. Are there any left? Charming little package of mouth-watering goodness.

Still trying to figure out what software you use to make your sweet tags and curvie words. I just love'm.

I only wish that was my White Picket Fence... but a lass it was in a Shaker Village in New Hampshire we visited. I just loved the pickets and their carved style. Besides, if it was my fence, it would have had a fresh coat of paint and probably a bow or two.

Can't wait to see who wins tomorrow. Off and running to get a haircut for my Nana Kate trip to Seattle next week.

Sweet Pumpkin Hugs,
Kate

Koralee,

First off I LOVE the buckle pumpkin! Is that your creation? Secondly, I heart pumpkin anything!!! Hubby's not a fan so it is a treat when I get a pumpkin treat. I think I will make pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting this weekend...

Best wishes,
Tammy
