I finally upped my pumpkin cheesecake game and arrived at perfection.
I made the unfortunate choice of bright yellow muffin papers, which cast a bit of a sickly glow in my photos, but the muffins themselves were delicious.

jump to recipe I wanted something to contrast yesterday’s bran muffins, something with a more complex flavor.

See all that stuff? I figured I’d […]
