For my entire life, my absolute favorite season has always been the fall.
I love the color of the leaves and the crispness in the air. I get excited to break out my long sleeve shirts and sweaters, and hide my translucent white legs with jeans!
There is chill in the air and fall is on it’s way.
The flavors of fall are another selling point for me. I love root vegetables, apples, and most of all pumpkin.
What’s more comforting on a cool fall morning than a slice of warm pumpkin bread with butter? Not much. Your family will love this moist pumpkin bread recipe!
