Serendipity and Pumpkin Pie

 Pumpkin Pie Muffins

My sister was yearning for a yummy something yesterday afternoon. Something nice, like a tasty muffin.  Only thing when she went routing in the pantry was a tin (or do you say can?) of pumpkin pie filling. She did wonder where and when she bought that... she doesn't often make pumpkin pie -- I told her maybe it was a hint from hubby.

Being the experienced baker and chef that she is, she had no fear in pairing her tried and true banana bread recipe with that surprise tin of pie filling.

To her delight and sheer joy, it all worked together for good!  Perfectly. Deliciously. Satisfyingly.

In her own words, she said the muffins were 'spicy with cinnamon, moist with pumpkin, chockablock with plump raisins'. Here is the link to Kathy's new, hot-from-the oven Pumpkin Pie Muffins.

Aren't you glad when something comes together so well and so tasty? Now, I wonder if there's any pumpkin pie filling lingering in my pantry?

Wishing you glimpses ... and a spicy hug,


  1. They sure look good. I wish that I said "tin." It sounds more romantical than "can."

  2. We love pumpkin bread and I bet we would like these, too. I will have to give them at ry!

  3. Looks yummy. Might have to try it will real pumpkin.

  4. I love pumpkin anything with chocolate chips-just yummy together.

  5. i love pumpkin any time of year!!
