The Life of a Recipe

Remember my last try at a Pumpkin recipe? (below in earlier posts) Well, my bloggin’ friend Angie Walker borrowed my recipe to create her own muffins. They look great.

I wanted to post about what happens with just one recipe. You see, earlier in the year I created a not so great pumpkin muffin recipe:

Then I re-designed the recipe, left off the frosting and threw in cranberries and some other items and came up with what you saw in my earlier post.

Then my friend Angie changed it a little and gave it her twist – coconut!

You can see how she made her muffins at her blog: So, there you have it. The life of a recipe. It started as a simple, bland pumpkin muffin (sometimes bland is good) and then it was re-designed twice. I would think that almost everyone remembers a recipe that has changed over the years. Enjoy!

My love of cooking has taken over. I was on the net one day and saw an ad for a recipe contest. I entered. Then, I entered another. Then another, and so on and when I won a contest... an entire year's worth of tomato products, I was hooked. Since then, I've entered many many different recipe contests. I have won a trip to New York, entries into cook-offs, a recipe published in a Kraft/Paula Deen cookbook and many food products and food related items. I enjoy cooking and entering recipe contests. I hope I spark an interest in others to create something they can be proud of. I'm always getting more ideas from the internet. Wow, I remember not having the internet years ago. It's a God send and I'm trying to cover every inch of the food sites!! Join me in my quest to keep fresh ideas flowing and creating new and exciting dishes.

    This is the best recipe to use if you are trying to watch your sugar content. There is tons of flavor, and you’re not stuck with a bland tasteless muffin. Cut them open, top each half with apple butter (sugarless), and you have a wonderful treat. I am so glad you shared this with me (made it public) Angela. Instead of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, it is Sisterhood of the Traveling Muffin Recipe. Loved that movie by the way…..
