Nothing says Fall like #pumpkineverything right? I’m not really sure why I always feel the need to wait until Fall to break out the pumpkin and spices, but it always seems to work out that way. As soon as I started seeing those Fall flavors hit the shelves in markets and my favorite speciality stores, I fell right in line this year (as always). Never fails… September arrives and BOOM. Pumpkin everywhere you look. It’s time to pre heat that oven and get baking. Unfortunately, up until this past week here in California, our temps have been in the high 80’s to mid 90’s. I adore our moderate So Cal weather but every now and then I do get an urge to pick up the family and move somewhere that has actual seasons. Someplace where it actually gets cold cold and kids have to take snow days. I love seeing friends from all over the country post pics of changing leaves, cold temps, roaring fires, hot chocolate mugs, and cute cold weather gear. Meanwhile, here in San Diego I’m rocking flip flops 355 days a year. I suppose I can’t complain though and 99.9% of the time I would keep our weather and wouldn’t have it any other way! Anyways, back to my cupcakes here…
I was absolutely itching to get in the kitchen and I knew as soon as my shipment of MuscleEgg arrived with the limited edition “Pumpkin Spice” that as soon as it was defrosted, cupcakes were on deck! These came out perfect and because I prepped them over the weekend, I got to enjoy them as a post workout snack the entire week. That’s winning if you ask me!!!
