I have the cutest little helper in the world.
He likes to help me with all my 'round the house jobs.
He loves to mix things. Like mommy, like son. I love to mix, too.
It's just the cleaning up part I don't really care for. But my little helper, he'd do my dishes too if I let him. He's that sweet.
Pumpkin-pecan muffins were on the agenda the other day.
His favorite part of baking is the mixing, but his second favorite thing is sprinkling the cinnamon sugar on top.
But these muffins aren't your run of the mill muffins.
No siree. They are fiber packed. Whole wheat, baby. Check it out...

You can read my very first post here if you want to.
I sure wish I could find that taffy again this year, though. Loved that stuff.
