One day I was eating a pumpkin muffin that I had made for my family to enjoy. I had a pair of gliders under my shirt when I was enjoying one of these scrumptious and oh-so-moist muffins. Well, the male must have gotten a whiff of the muffin. He decided he HAD to have a piece of it, so he crept up from underneath my shirt and actually STOLE a piece of the muffin as I was taking a bite! He promptly took his treasure back down my shirt to share with his mate. I looked in to see the two of them happily munching on the muffin chunk. It was the cutest thing I have ever seen!

So that you can share this joy with your gliders, here is the recipe to make your own pumpkin muffins:

*Makes 24 muffins


2 1/2 cups flour
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 eggs
3/4 cup salad oil
1/2 cup water
2 cups canned pumpkin
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 400.  Sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Mix eggs, oil and water in a large bowl of a mixer.  Gradually add dry ingredients, mixing to form a smooth batter.  Add pumpkin and mix well.  Fold in nuts.  Pour into muffin tins that have been lined with paper liners.  Fill each cup 2/3 full.  Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.

***When I make the muffins for the gliders to enjoy, I omit the nuts!
