These muffins are a fall favorite in our house. They are super quick and easy… just cake mix and pumpkin… yep, that’s it.  

I don’t even pull out my mixer most of the time and just stir it together.

My favorite thing about these is that you can easily switch them up for variety.

For instance, you can use any flavor cake mix. I really like the spice cake for the autumn taste, but seriously, they are all good! Also, you can throw in some chocolate chips or raisins.

Finally, these are great plain, but I also love to top them with powdered sugar or cream cheese frosting.

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi, I’m Jo!

I have two small children, Ry and Lily, only 19 months apart. It’s usually crazy around my house, but thankfully my wonderful husband is around a ton and helps keep the peace.

I also own my own business and work full-time. I’d love to list all these amazing hobbies I have, but honestly I can barely handle keeping the kids entertained, the house clean, and food on the table. Although on days I’m too tired to do housework, I love to pour a glass of wine and watch Supernatural or Murdoch Mysteries on Netflix.

My husband and I like to stay very busy and drag our kids everywhere with us. Weekends often include relaxing at wineries, festivals, exploring Washington D.C. and other short getaway trips.
