Pecan Pie Muffins

I ran into this recipe for Pecan Pie Muffins online last night. So I thought, "I like pecan pie + I like muffins= I like Pecan Pie Muffins!" So I made them.

I also thought this would be a good opportunity to play with light and the Av setting on my new camera. ;)  Eventually I'll make my way to full Manual! Can't wait!

So here are a couple of pics of my yummy muffins. I forgot to take pics of the process of mixing the various ingredients but you get the idea with the photos below.

In the oven and ready to bake.

New Hobby!

I did it! I took a dive and purchased my first Digital SLR camera! Do I know how to operate an SLR camera you ask? ... Um... well... No. But I plan on learning! I'll take a couple of classes, talk to a few folks who I know regularly use one and take great photos. I'm a fast learner I'll get it.... eventually.

Here is a pic of the camera I purchased:
It's a Canon EOS Rebel T1i (not sure what that really means).

So, I was dying to start a hobby and develop a new skill so I decided to try photography. It wasn't random... really.  I am a full-time mom and work part-time as the Director of New Life Kids Ministry at New Life Fellowship. Needless to say I have NO TIME for hobbies.  But all work and no play makes Rosie a very grouchy mama and wife. No bueno!
