Blueberry Pumpkin Cupcakes

I am so happy to be sharing a new recipe with you guys today, it feels like forever since I’ve really dug in and did some major blogging. Man does my heart miss it! I wish I could tell you guys we’re all settled in Europe and I’m baking up a storm – the truth isn’t anything close to that.

The real deal? We’ve ate an embarrassing amount of BK and I’ve had more pastries in the last 4 weeks then the last 4 years. I mean really, that’s considered research right? I’m totally going with research. Plus, I don’t even regret it. IF ya’ll seen the amount of up hill walking we’ve done you would be eating chocolate croissants too! The BK, well that’s just the reality of moving across the world and having to constantly feed 4 kids but have no vehicle, understanding of the native language, and a half packed house. Don’t get me wrong, we are absolutely loving Europe but it’s taking a lot longer then I had ever imagined to get settled. We’re not exactly sitting at the village cafe sipping tea and enjoying the view – yet.

Blueberry Pumpkin Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes when I was still back in the states, I saw the flavor combo in a trail mix of all things and I knew I had to try it out in a cupcake. It was so delish. I’ve been eagerly awaiting sharing with you guys in the midst of our move. That blueberry frosting guys….YUM. You will definetly see some more blueberry cupcakes on the site when I get back to baking. Which is first going to require me to google how to work my European oven…and the research some kitchen tools that till be able to be powered here. All in time right? For now – back to these blueberry babies. Seriously guys if your looking for something to mix up thanksgiving. Right. Here. It. Is.
