Pin Seventeen: Call me Betty Bloody Crocker

This weekend I was surrounded by delicious eats at our little Towns Fall Fair...My hubs actually said Im the only pregnant lady he knows who yearns for food out of a trailer...I'm a big street meat fan too- Love a hotdog stand more than anyone I know...The Fair grounds had a bunch of different trailers/trucks set up with different food- I was on the search for the best poutine I could find & was disappointed after scoping out each option with the one I went with...However, I made up for it with cupcakes, white almond chocolate bark & a garlic festival with samples at my friend & Guest Blogger's store Ambers...Normally with all that good eating I would have bailed on learning to bake in the same weekend but since I wrote it on the blog, I thought that I would give it a go, I felt obligated to try...

Now, Ive never really baked before & was all in a frenzy getting my ingredients together...The hubs was out & the Bubs was sleeping when I first began...I found this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffin recipe on Pinterest for Pin Seventeen & added a cream cheese frosting to really bring them from a simple muffin to a fabulous treat!

My first challenge was realizing as I was simmering the pumpkin that we didnt have any vegetable oil- Panicked I got a hold of some of my gals – half of them said I could use olive oil instead and I was just about to when my Guest Blogger & Baking Extraordinaire Alyssa told me not to & it would change the taste- Thankfully, my sister in law was the hero in this story and dropped off some beloved vegetable oil so I could continue on my baking discovery...

My second challenge was hearing my little 30 pound man wake up & then wanting to be cuddled & held while I continued trying to mix all the bloody ingredients and make cream cheese frosting...Bet ya Betty Crocker didnt hold a cuddly baby in one arm & mix er up in the other!
In the end I was pleased with my little muffins- with frosting does that make them cupcakes? The hubs gave them a 10/10 which I have never gotten from him before...My girls Jenn & Sarah were I think shocked to find me baking to begin with & thankfully found them delish...Next time I bake though I will make sure the hubs is here to take care of Noal, that I have all my ingredients ahead of time & that someone else does the dishes...I wasnt a fan of all the dishes 12 little muffin/cupcakes can create...
