We were made to work and be the undershepherds of creation (Gen. 2). Unfortunately, after the Fall, work got a lot harder and became far less enjoyable.
The other day at Sunday school, my toddler scarfed down three full-sized pumpkin muffins. With shock, horror, and excitement, I knew exactly what I needed to do next. I needed to make a batch of my own, famous pumpkin muffins to add to her breakfast rotation. The flavor profile of these muffins truly is worthy of the “bomb-dot-com” label.
