I'm Sumo! Well, my real name is Summer, but my husband nicknamed me Sumo when we were dating. (Yes, I still married him!)
It's a blog I started to share my crafting and creating. I also like to host giveaways, feature other bloggers, and maybe share some crazy ramblings about how much I love Diet Coke, or my relationships with Shirley and Lucy (my sewing machine and Silhouette). I started sewing about a year and a half ago, and I haven't looked back since! It's probably my favorite creative past time now, especially since I've got two little girls and a third one on the way!
I was excited when Amanda asked me to be a part of her series. Fall is my favorite season for sure. I just love the weather, the colors, the smells - all of it! And to me, fall says comfort food. Soups, breads, and, well, sweets.
These pumpkin muffins are seriously amazing! I make them a few times every fall, but can't do it more often than that because I end up eating waaaaaay too many. The recipe makes a ton, so I like to freeze some after making a batch.
3 c pumpkin
1 1/2 c vegetable oil
4 c sugar
4 3/4 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp cloves
1 pkg butterscotch chips*
1 pkg chocolate chips*
* I like to split my batter in half and do half of it with chocolate chips and half of it with butterscotch chips. But if you just prefer one or the other, you only need one package of your preference.
Mix pumpkin, oil, sugar, and eggs.
Combine other dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Mix in with pumpkin.
Stir in chips.
Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.
Go ahead. Make them, and try not to eat five a day.
