This may sound weird…but some mornings within 10 minutes of being awake you can find me in the kitchen baking something already. I get an idea and HAVE to make it before it leaves my brain! I have a baking bug in me! 

For those who don’t know…I live in California and it’s September 4th and I’m publishing a PUMPKIN recipe. No, it doesn’t FEEL like Fall in Fresno, California yet. But – YES, you can still find me baking pumpkin goodies from Sept – basically January! #SorryNotSorry 🙂 

Growing up, my Grammie often bought Entenmann’s Pound Cake. I remember coming home from school and it was 1 of 3 things: Chocolate Pudding, her homemade bread rolls, or Entenmann’s Pound Cake. In honor of school being back in session and Fall quickly approaching, I had this desire to make Pumpkin Pound Cake!

The collagen is certainly not a Grammie touch, that is something extra I added. I can only imagine my Grammie’s face if I told her I put collagen in my pound cake HAHA!

Update on life: 

  • I am no longer an Instructor at Cyclebar. One door closes and another opens.
  • September is my birthday month! #Virgo 
  • I went to Dallas at the end of August for Dallas Mania.  I became certified in Pilates Mat Work with a few other girls from BEYOND Studios here in Clovis! 
  • You can find me at BEYOND Studios (Reformer Pilates) 4 days a week and blogging on the other days. 
  • Next week I am headed to the Tastemakers Conference in SLC and I am SO excited to network with other bloggers around the US. 
  • Then, later this month I am going to New Orleans (for the 2nd time this year, what?!) with the Tri-Lamb group. To sum it up – this trip is a 3 day lamb + culinary medicine immersion for a small group of health and nutrition professionals. We will learn the latest lamp nutrition and trend data and how lamb fits into a healthy, balanced American diet, get hands on cooking with lamb, meet & learn from a shepherd, and I am sure much much more!
  • Between all the busyness – I’ve been trying to spend more time with friends and family. Working on keeping the social life alive! I think at the next family gathering I need to bring these Pumpkin Muffin Bites!

What have all of you been up to? Leave me a comment below and let me know!

  • Moist
  • Pumpkin-y
  • Only 10 ingredients 
  • Goes great with coffee
  • Is the pound cake of your dreams

I am all about all things pumpkin! This sounds lovely for some weekend baking!

I’ve never baked with collagen before! Does it bake normally? Any changes?


I want to start baking with collagen more and I think this recipe is the perfect one to try out first!
