Yes, it’s that time again – This Week’s Cravings has arrived, and our theme this week goes perfectly with my blog’s theme this week – Pumpkin recipes. I am very proud to be co-hosting This Week’s Cravings along with Tina over at MOMS CRAZY COOKING, Kristen from From My Tiny Kitchen, Angie from Big Bear’s Wife  & Kristi from Veggie Converter.

So have you made any pumpkin recipes lately? Want to link up? Yes, you – if you have a pumpkin recipe, link it up down there at the bottom in the linky. It will be awesome. (make sure you read the simple rules first). And make sure it’s a PUMPKIN RECIPE.

Now, here’s mine. Oh and btw. The perspective is way off on that photo. While the muffins are smaller than normal muffins, they aren’t mini muffins – that coffee cup is HUGE! lol
