As the chilly weather has started to show up more consistently, I find myself in the mood to do some baking.  I actually really enjoy baking, but I don’t do it very often since I also like to eat baked goods!  But, baking a dozen apple cinnamon muffins seemed like a pretty safe bit of fall baking and I knew my family would enjoy them.

When we renovated our kitchen, I made a note of a few pieces of baking gear that needed an update.  I also checked my baking supplies to replace any ingredients that were low or passed their expiration date.  Of course, I shopped for any replacements or additions.  I put together a grocery order on (or app from my phone) a couple of times each week, so I just tacked on some extra things to come with my regular deliveries or to be shipped.  As you probably know, they have everything you might need from measuring cups to mixing bowls.

I restocked my , got new muffin tins (I bought pack of two by Pioneer Woman), got a pack of , purchased a new , and a few other things.  Today was overcast, so it felt like the perfect day to break out the new muffin tins.  I made THIS apple cinnamon oatmeal muffin recipe.

I’ve had these jars for years and am often asked about them when I’ve shared them in this kitchen as well as our previous one.  They are less than $10 and are great for pretty, functional kitchen decor.  I’ve used them for oats, flour, sugar, cookie cutters, candles, clothespins, etc.

I forgot to add the crumble topping, so I added it after the muffins had been in the oven and I’m guessing that killed the loft!  They aren’t dome-topped muffins, but they are so tasty!

Here’s a closer look at the Pioneer Woman muffin tin, which comes in a set of two…

While the muffin-baking was going on, I made a batch of carrot white bean soup and some chicken patties.  I’ll share the recipe for those soon!

Another pretty piece I found while I was perusing the fall decor on Walmart was this Pioneer Woman ceramic pumpkin pie dish with a lid.  I don’t buy a lot of holiday or season-specific stuff (except for Christmas), but I thought this was so sweet.  I also like that when you remove the lid, it just looks like a normal ceramic pie plate, so it can be used year-round.

Marshall’s already hitting the muffins and I had a fun time baking and photographing them.

I was talking to someone last week about my work and how it continues to evolve.  Whether it’s painting furniture, sewing curtains, or baking muffins, the core of what I do is still the same.  I make things, I take pictures, and I write about it.  And that’s what I did today.

I also shopped the Walmart online fall decor section and picked out a few things that caught my eye to share.  You can find all of these products linked HERE.

      What a lovely posting. I so enjoy cloudy days in the kitchen making soup and doing some baking. Thank you also for posting the items that caught your eye. I need an anniversary gift and the cake stand is perfect. I’ll add the couples favorite cake too.

      It must be a real joy working in your new kitchen. The Walmart choices are great.

      What an inspirational post! Reading it makes me want to head directly to my kitchen and bake something. It’s makes me feel good to see you enjoying your new kitchen too. Love all the items from your Walmart shopping list, especially the covered cake stand, and wish I needed one or had cabinet or shelf space for it… I sure do plan to get kitchen towels though. We never have too many of those. Thanks for such a fun post today.

      Nothing like warm muffins on a cloudy day. I hear ya …on the I like to bake but I will eat them too!
      It looks like it would be so fun to bake in your beautiful kitchen. I am curious about one feature. How do you keep all the copper pieces from getting spatters and attracting dust in that very busy area? How do you keep up on it? It looks great!!!

      Must be so nice to bake in your new kitchen!
