Pumpkin Muffins from Bouchon Bakery

These are long gone. I made them Thanksgiving day, last Thursday.

The aroma permeating the kitchen as they baked was tortuous. I was so hungry and the smell of warm pumpkin and bread had my stomach rumbling.

The texture was a cross between mousse and cake batter. Wish I had one now.

My brother-in-law David drove up from Tampa for Turkey Day but unfortunately his wife and daughter couldn't join the festivities. Work and other commitments threw a wrench in it. My son and daughter-in-law couldn't make it either. The Army planned their commitments as well.

That means I will have to make these muffins again. There is a recipe for Bouchons which is begging to be tried out. Thomas Keller stated they are the most popular dessert in America. Who am I to argue with Keller. Right?

My short review of Bouchion Bakery may be found here at Novel Meals.

Looking forward to preparing Bouchons and cookies....well, so much more from this lovely book.

Enjoy, my friends!

Wow. I love any pumpkin muffin, but those sound amazing. Especially that batter. Just give me a spoon!

Thank you ladies! Be warned, they are addicting and you can eat too many :-)

Grilling Chicken and Asparagus

This new Weber grill has taken the heat out of the kitchen and outside on the porch. Perfect when the temperatures are reaching the upper 90...
