Inspiring Fall Decorating Ideas and A Yummy Gingerbread Muffin Recipe

Hi, Primmies, everyone seems excited (and relieved from the heat of this summer) about the approaching Fall Season. I know I am. I'm peeping from the kitchen window several times daily to see what leaves are starting to turn. Our little baby maples' leaves have turned colors, isn't that funny? The big fellas I'm still waiting. It was early last year. Maybe this year,too.
So, I've website-hopped a little and here's some pretty ideas for decorating and a Gingerbread
Muffin recipe (who doesn't love gingerbread?)

Gingerbread Pear Muffins
Makes: 12
Prep: 25 minutes Bake: 15 minutes Cool: 10 minutes
Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens

cups all-purpose flour
tsp. baking powder
tsp. ground ginger
tsp. ground cinnamon
tsp. baking soda
tsp. salt
cup mild-flavored molasses
cup butter, melted
cup packed brown sugar
cup boiling water
small pears, cut in 6 wedges each
ounces dark or bittersweet chocolate broken in small pieces
Raw sugar, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly coat twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray and flour.
2. In large bowl combine flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. In a second bowl whisk together molasses, butter, brown sugar, and egg. Pour into flour mixture. Stir until combined. Whisk in boiling water. Divide evenly among muffin cups. Add 1 pear wedge to each muffin, press lightly.
3. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Add chocolate piece to top of muffins. Cool in pan on rack 10 minutes. Use table knife to smooth melted chocolate. Remove from cups. Cool completely on wire rack. Makes 12.

That recipe looks so good and the presentation is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. I just found a bell cloche and I'm dying for the pumpkins and gourds to show up here in FL so I can decorate. Love that front porch too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
