New Recipe

I have kept myself busy this weekend with baking and cleaning/organizing.  I tried a new cupcake recipe -- definitely a keeper and one that I'm only going to make when we are planning a social activity.  This recipe is too dangerous to my hips to make it without sharing them! I was browsing the Taste of Home website recipes this weekend trying to decide what to make to take to our friend's house for dessert.  This recipe stood out to me -- mostly because I haven't tasted anything with pumpkin in it that I didn't like!  They were definitely a hit with our friends and with Jaelyn.  See below for the recipe.
