WOW! I can’t wait to try out the muffins and cupcakes. I’m a huge fan of the chocolate stout cupcakes you’ve posted on here. The first time I made them, I only had dark cocoa in my cabinets – so in it went! Very yummy!
I love how every foodie on the internet is posted pumpkin-related recipes this weekend. My boyfriend and I attempted our first pumpkin cheesecake yesterday (for a dinner party we are throwing Tuesday). Hopefully it turned out as well as your minis!

I made your recipe for pumpkin scones. They just came out of the oven and they turned out great. I make cinnamon raisin scones all the time and I’m glad that you came up with ones that are not just flat muffins. I did tweak it because of lack of ingredients on hand. I only had half and half instead of heavy cream. I did not have cake flour but used the trick of using substituting 1/4 cup of corn starch for 1/4 cup of flour. I will make these again since I have some pumpkin left over. Thanks.
I entered the recipe into a calorie calculator and if this makes 8 servings, they have about 270 calories per scone and 11g of fat without the icing and including the raisins. Just in case you were wondering They are also pretty high in iron and vitamin A. I used this calculator: http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php
I have spent a good amount of time going through Sig on the way to the sand box. Long live beers in the pool at the Sigg Inn! I am a first time visitor and I would like to say that your photos are simply amazing. Definitely subscribing. Thanks for your (and DH’s) service.

I made the Pumpkin spice cake!!!!! YUMMMM-O! Everyone at work loved it! It was soooo moist! I used one of your cream cheese spread recipes, but put it on the side in case people did not want the spread. I used cream cheese, powdered sugar and TRADER JOE’s Pumpkin butter! I had to improvise, I did not like the stick of butter in the recipe. Can you use this cake recipe to make cupcakes? Or does have to be altered? I would love to make it as cupcakes! I can’t wait to make the Red Velvet next!!!
I love fall and all the pumpkin recipes that come out. Great post! Will definitely be making some of these this year I’d like to share my favorite healthy pumpkin recipe: http://bit.ly/GZygWy Pumpkin Raisin Cookies. Don’t let the word cookie fool you into thinking it’s not healthy! Hope to share more recipes.
First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center
yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my
ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!
