I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Quinn's Farm Pumpkin Loaf and Muffins

Way back when the kids were in elementary school they went on field trips to Quinn's Farm for both apple and pumpkin picking. They would always have a snack...apple juice and a pumpkin muffin.
On the first trip there in 1996 the farm was kind enough to hand out some pumpkin recipes and I've been using this one for pumpkin loaf and muffins ever since. And I always try to keep some pumpkin purée in the freezer.

4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
3 cups white sugar
2 cups puréed pumpkin
3  1/2 cups flour
2 tsps baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
pinch cloves
3/4 cup raisins (dried cranberries or chocolate chips)

Cream the first 4 ingredients together.  Combine the dry ingredients and add all together. Fold in the raisins (we usually go for the chocolate chips)
Pour into 2 prepared loaf pans or 30 medium muffins tins lined with papers.

Bake at 350 F for 1 hour for loaves, 25-30 minutes for muffins.
Thanks Quinn's
