Why hello, there!
Since I started blogging in September of 2008 I never missed a month without posting at least once. Until this July, that is. And then August, and then September. Not quite sure what happened, but I think it has something to do with having 2 kids and Evelyn’s energy level.
I’m here to start over again today, and the reason is this:
Pecan Pie Muffins.
Ridiculous, I know, since I have the world’s 2 cutest, funniest kids to blog about and I haven’t. And yet, these muffins… Well, I wouldn’t say I love them more than my kids, but they are pretty good at sitting still, not making messes, not screaming… and they taste amazing. They were also fast and easy to make. Don’t try and compare and contrast that with my kids, though.
I won’t lie, I’m pretty sure there is nothing healthy about them. But if you are going to eat them instead of a doughnut, or perhaps a piece of pecan pie, then I will let you pretend they are health food.
Try them out, the recipe can be found here: http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/breads/pecan-pie-muffins-6/
*The only changes I made were to melt the butter first, rather than just softening it, and I added a few more pecans, since my food processor chopped more than 1 cups worth. Also, I didn’t feel the need to put any extra butter on them before eating, they didn’t need it.
