French Jar & Fall Flowers


Hi there everyone!

I know what you’re thinking…

two posts in one week??

It’s nothing short of a miracle.  But here I am.


All I have to share with you is a few photos of my

French canning jar with a pear…and a recipe :)

Three recipe posts in a row. Wow.

Oh, and I added some pretty fall flowers to my

“eat sign”, too.


I’m sure you’ve seen around “blogland”, how some

creative people have used fruits to hold tapers.

Well, I just copied their idea :)

If you’d like to enjoy some delicious pumpkin-chocolate

chip muffins…here is the easy recipe.

1 cup sugar

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

2 large eggs

1 cup plain canned pumpkin

1 stick melted butter

1 2/3 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup chocolate chips (we like semisweet)

Mix first 5 ingredients, then add dry ingredients.

Add chocolate chips. Grease muffin pans and bake at

350 for 15-20 minutes.

Can we make those muffins weight watchers friendly?

You are such a wonderful cook especially when you bake your homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Glad to hear from you Becky, that pear is simply enormous, is it grown in your orchards?

I rarely leave a response, however i did some searching and wound up here "French Jar & Fall Flowers".
And I do have a couple of questions for you if
it's allright. Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of the responses appear like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
