A Perfect Autumn Breakfast

There's something you should know! :) I'm not a cook! The fanciest meals I've made include spaghetti (with DelMonte tomatoes), scrambled or sunny-side-up eggs, the simplest of fried rice, and instant grits. And so imagine how excited I was that my second attempt (the first one was a few years ago) at baking pumpkin bread (using Williams-Sonoma's Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Bread mix) turned out well!

Well = nothing burned ... everything's edible! :)

It's amazing how good the pumpkin bread is considering it comes from a ready-made mixture, to which I only had to add a stick of butter, a cup of water, and 2 eggs! Total cooking time is between 50 minutes to an hour. And voila ... delicious!

Homemade pumpkin bread is one of the hundreds of reasons why I love fall so much!

That's my kind of cooking too. I'm going to try your recipe this weekend. Just imagine the aroma of freshly baked bread, I already feel good ... (if I don't burn anything) :o)

Happy Halloween.
