Well, I’m participating in the 2007 Halloween Countdown as well. During the month of October, needlework folks are offering favorite recipes and personal stories on The Armchair Chef blog.
I earmarked the very first recipe, Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins, by Teresa Wentzler of TW Designworks. Ohmydroolinggoodness, I’ve got to make these. I’m not a pumpkin pie fan, and I’m definitely not a pumpkin soup fan, but I would eat a haywagon full of pumpkin bread and muffins. And Teresa has a reputation of being an amazing cook. While I’ve never sampled her cooking (yoo-hoo, Teresa!), one look at her needlework and artwork convinces me it’s true: such detail, care, and perfection does not exist in a vacuum. I’m sure it touches every aspect of her life, from her studio, to her garden, to her kitchen.
Trouble is, I don’t have apples at the moment. Sigh. Since a 100-mile round trip will not be undertaken for apples alone, it could be a few weeks before I get to make them.
I’m not sure when my recipe will appear, so you’ll just have to watch for it, I guess. I’ll give you a hint: It’s either delicious or disgusting or both. How’s that for enticing? Any guesses?!
