My Little Love Muffin

I finally bought a new muffin tin.  I, I know I am in love.  I have made more muffins in the last 2 weeks, than in the last 2 months.   It is the answer to all my Muffin Dreams...

It amazes me how much easier a good kitchen tool/gadget can make kitchen work.    We all have our favourites--things we cannot do without in the kitchen.  Here is a short list (in no particular order) of my fave's for kitchen work:

1.  Good quality, sharp knives--balance is everything!
2.  High Grade (18/10) stainless steel, heavy bottom pots and frying pans
3.  Non stick cookie sheets (not jelly pans...cookie sheets have no sides, jelly pans do)
4.  Non Stick muffin tray ( new love!)
5.  Pampered chef large batter bowl/measuring cup
6.  stainless steel whisk
7.  Tupperware Quick Chef (food chopper)
8.  Silicone spatula
9.  wooden spoon

Here is a new muffin recipe..yummy!

Pumpkin Pecan Muffins

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup sour milk (add a squeeze of lemon to your milk and let sit for 10 min to sour)
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup pecans

1/3 cup br sugar
1/3 cup finely chopped pecan
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter

Combine dry ingredients.  Mix wet ingredients and combine with dry.  Stir until just combined--don't over mix.  Fold in pecans. Divide into muffin tin.

Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over batter.  Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.
