Yum

So excited for yet another reveal day for my group in Secret Recipe Club! This month I'm happy to welcome four new members to Group D: Becky, Sue, Lauren, and Mary Kay.

I was assigned Bean's blog, Without Adornment, this month. I am honestly blown away at how many women are in the science or engineering fields in Group D. It's just so inspiring and incredible! Bean has a degree in chemical engineering. I don't know what it was, but I was craving pumpkin when I went searching for my recipe for this month's reveal day. When I found this recipe for Pumpkin Struesel Muffins, I was immediately on board. I didn't need to look any further.

I ended up making the original version, but if you are on a gluten-free diet, Bean has a gluten-free version that you just have to try! Her blog is full of other allergen-friendly recipes too.
