Pumpkin Muffins 

It’s that time of year again!  Pumpkin muffins are a favorite in our house, and this is a no fail recipe which my family has loved for years.  With a teenage son in the house (and a dog ready for any accidental falling muffin or crumb) they are gone almost as soon as I take them out of the oven.  I prefer nuts and raisins in them but either way in any form, muffin or bread loaf, they’re a win win!  I think this recipe came from Juliet Terzian who was a designer at Maharam with me, and we still keep in touch.  Enjoy!
