Fall is pumpkin time and pumpkin is very versatile to cook with. It can be found in both savory and sweet dishes. Everyone is familiar with traditional pumpkin pie but I have found a different way to celebrate pumpkin. This is a really easy, fast and scrumptious pumpkin muffin recipe. The muffins are delicious plain with that sprinkling of brown sugar but I add chopped pecans and blueberries to my muffins for more texture and flavor. This recipe is adapted from a book called Muffin Mania.
