Jumbo GlutenFree Pumpkin Muffins

It's Summer!

And we are devouring pumpkin muffins like the weather is cool and crisp outside!

My boy cherub adores pumpkin!

It's kind of weird, but he has always been that way!

Anything homemade and pumpkin, he will eat!

Funny story... When he was in kindergarten, his Sunday school class was celebrating with a Thanksgiving feast.

Every kid was to bring a portion of the meal.

We were signed up for green beans.

We did our duty and sent our food.

After church, we were talking about the feast and asking our cherub questions.

He told us there was pumpkin pie and he didn't like it.

We were surprised!

He said, "Mom, It was store bought!"

These muffins are not store bought AND they are delicious!
