Pumpkin Spice Muffins

I’m pining.

It’s September. Starbucks has once again rolled out its Pumpkin Spice Latte. I’ve heard rumors of 60-degree temperatures. Football season has (officially?) started. Ann Taylor Loft is full of beautiful sweaters in charcoal grays, antique burgundys, and vintage blues. Colors that just scream fall.


Better-than-Hostess Cupcakes

They taunt me from the check-out line at the grocery store. “Buy me.” “Eat me.” “You know you want to.”

You’ve heard them, too, no doubt. They’re persistent little things.

But I have willpower. I walk triumphantly past them and pay the cashier for my basket of fruits and veggies. Victory.

…and then I go home and make them myself.

Because, who doesn’t love a Hostess cupcake, after all?
