When summer is gone and school is in session, I tend to bake more because I love the way my house smells when there’s something baking in the oven. Even more so when it contains pumpkin pie spice. The smells that permeates the air puts me in a great mood.
I love anything that is pumpkin — Pumpkin pie, pumpkin flavored coffee, pumpkin cake, pumpkin bread, you name it, I love it! The one recipe I make every year is the Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Nut Loaf Bread. Ever since I found this recipe online at Libbys.com (now it’s meals.com) 6 years ago, I make at least 4 loaves every Fall. It’s easy, nutritious and delicious.
