Posted on October 26, 2009

Pumpkin Pie Muffins

Posted on October 17, 2008

These gluten free Pumpkin Pie Muffins are, of course, a favorite of my younger son. When he was little, he ate so much pumpkin and winter squash that he turned a slightly orange hue. Luckily, he’s back to normal now.

I often forget how much I love cooking with pumpkin until fall arrives.  Well, fall is back and I have been using this vegetable with a vengeance.
