My REALLY good reason for not posting in a while....

Hi everyone!  I know it has been ages, and you have probably all forgotten about me (oh I hope not!)  But I really promise that there is a wonderful reason why I haven't been posting in a while....

On Sunday, November 14th we welcomed to the world our little Owen!  He was 7 lbs 12 oz, 21 inches long and the happiest, sweetest baby ever!  After an unexpected c-section making our stay in the hospital a bit longer then anticipated, we are finally home and having a wonderful time getting to know each other.

Jackson is absolutely loving being a big brother and is my ultimate helper.  It can be hard to share your mommy and daddies attention with someone else, but we have been so proud of how well he is doing.  He was so ready for this!

I can't be on my feet for long periods of time, at least for a little while.  But I am already getting the itch to be back in the kitchen!  So please stay tuned for life to resume here as before.  Soon- I promise!  But until then, Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here in My Retro Kitchen!  I hope you have as much to be thankful for as we do this year.

Yum Yum Brownie Muffins

I am sorry to all of you for deserting you for so long.  I have been one very naughty blogger!  But this pregnancy is coming to a close (only 5 days to go!!) And it has been hard to cook lately.  I hope you all forgive me!!

With the holidays approaching I thought I needed to share with you a completely delicious AND completely guilt free recipe.  These seriously have to be the easiest muffin recipe known to mankind, thanks again to Hungry Girl.  It takes only TWO ingredients, and make the moistest, fudgiest brownie muffins ever.  And to think they are even healthy- amazing!  They definitely don't taste it!  They are called muffins, but you could totally make them into cupcakes.  I made them as full sized muffins, but they would be awesome as mini-muffins- a perfect little grab-and-go snack. Now, the main ingredient is a can of pumpkin.  I know what you are thinking.  But you will NEVER know that there is pumpkin in these muffins.  You get all the health benefits of the pumpkin, but ALL the flavor of chocolate.

Yum Yum Brownie Muffins
1 box devil’s food cake mix (18 1/4 oz.)
1 can solid pack pumpkin (15 oz.)

Mix the two ingredients together. Don't add anything else that may be mentioned on the box, such as eggs, oil, or water. The mixture will be very thick and you will be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother. DO NOT DO THIS AS IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING! Place batter into muffin tins (or mini muffin tins) lined with paper, or sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Makes 12 regular or 36 mini muffins.
