Holidays headed our way!


It seems as though fall is bread baking time.  My mom was famous for a scrumptious pumpkin bread recipe, and I’ve continued making it for family and friends.  When I said “family”, I didn’t realize that my main man was eating it, but didn’t really like pumpkin bread.  For like 10 years.  Apparently he’s a banana bread fan.  So, I’m sharing both with you today.  I’ve tried some NASTY banana bread recipes, but finally found a good one that I’ve hung on to.  The only thing about making banana bread is the little gnats that appear when you buy bananas.  I cured this problem by leaving them in the plastic grocery bag that I brought them home in.

Hope you enjoy, and have fun getting ready for the holidays.  AND, don’t forget those who are serving or who have served our country!
