All About Pumpkin & Blog Give-a-way

It's All About Pumpkins for me now that it is October.  Pumpkin plus Vanilla Hazelnut has to be just about the best pumpkin fragrance in the world this year.  Available in bath salts (pictured above) and in soap.  Now for that pumpkin recipe I promised:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
3/4 C white sugar
1/4 C vegetable oil
2 eggs
3/4 C canned pumpkin
1/4 C water
1 1/2 C all purpose flour
3/4 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t ground cloves
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t salt
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips

Oven to 375-400 degrees (we use 375)
Grease and flour muffin tins or use liners
Mix sugar, eggs and oil.  Stir in pumpkin and water.  Combine flour and spices with baking soda and baking powder.  Stir into wet mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Fill muffins cups 2/3 full and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Now for the give-a-way.  I'm giving away a pumpkin bath salts plus a kit Little Witches from Fern Ridge Collection.  I love their designs!  You must leave a comment and then if selected be prepared to email me three of the Fern Ridge kits names that use our threads.  This means that you must have visisted their website at:   Look under Counted Thread kits - needlebooks.  Enjoy their website and good luck with the contest.  I'll announce the winner and ask for you to email me your response next Tuesday.

Off to the dye pots,
