Super Simple Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

I’d love to take credit for this delicious and oh so super muffin (can you say two ingredients?), but I got the recipe from my friend and fellow twin mama, Krystle, who found it on pinterest!

These are super yummy! I was baking them for the in-laws to enjoy when they arrived for their visit later today, but the babies have discovered them. (Emily ate one with a fork for lunch, she loves eating things with a fork.) I may have to whip up another batch once the big kids get home from school!

Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Italian Wedding Soup for a Crowd


Tonight is our turn to serve supper after church. I’m sharing one of my favorite soups out of my soup nazi stash…and I have even managed to make it super easy. Some days I like to do it all from scratch…but not when I am making a large batch.

So, here is my recipe for Italian Wedding soup for a crowd!

Saute a pound of finely diced carrots, a pound of finely diced celery and a pound of finely diced onion in some Olive Oil. Wait until it all looks soft. Then add about three gallons of water, and a jar of Orrington Farms Gourmet Chicken Soup Base (This stuff is awesome and is the closest I have found to homemade chicken stock. Chicken is the first ingredient and it is MSG free). I bring the whole mixture to a low boil, add about four cloves of crushed garlic, and then plop in a pound of Acini di Pepe pasta. Let it simmer for a bit so the pasta can cook, then add a bag of frozen Italian Style meatballs. Simeks is my favorite brand, they have good flavor and just the right shape and size. Simmer for a bit to heat the meatballs through, then add a bag or two of frozen whole leaf spinach. Heat through. Serve, topped with fresh grated parmesan and some crusty bread!

I’ll post some pictures tonight after the soup is cooked. I can almost taste it now!
