First Snowflakes, Hot Tea, & Pumpkin Muffins

This morning, winter's first snowflakes were softly falling outside the window, and I made a big pot of Earl Grey tea to get warm and cozy.

One of the things I have learned to love in Germany is my "Stoevchen." With a little candle, it keeps my tea hot until I've finished the pot.

After drinking a cup of tea or two, I decided that fresh muffins would make the kids (and myself) really happy, so I whipped up a batch of these pumpkin pecan spice muffins.

They were so good, just perfect with a little pat of butter, and wouldn't I love to give you one, hot and steamy, fresh from the oven!

However, I've done the next best thing: your copy of the recipe is here. Enjoy :)
