"OH MY GOSH !" squealed Queen B.
Teenage son #1 comes running in the kitchen.
"What happened mom?!"
Queen B can't talk. Her mouth is full. She just hands her son a muffin using hand signals to indicate that he should try one.
"mmmmm" said son #1.
Son #2 enters the kitchen....... grabs a muffin and takes a bite.
"When are you going to make these again ? " He said, staring at 20 muffins still left on the platter.
Son # 2 finds son #3 and hands him one..."Mmmmmmm" he said.
Daughter is sitting next to Queen B and said hers was 'yumma-licious'.
This was an ACTUAL EVENT that took place last night ! Really... I never get too excited over my cooking, but HELLO ! BEST MUFFIN I EVER ATE. Yep. I'm not kidding. Cindy Middleton of Champion, Alberta was awarded the grand prize in Taste of Home's muffin bake off.

Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full.
Bake at 400° for 15 -18minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. ( mine only took 15 min ). Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
Yield: about 2 dozen muffins.
