The mercury is rising over here!

Summer is just around the corner!

We are big fans of popsicles and find them to be a fantastic way to cool down when Mother Nature cranks up the heat. I put together this list of popsicles that I want to try to make this summer. They range from super simple and kid friendly to adult-only boozy treats. Because well, it’s nice to have a variety, right? :D

Mom’s Pumpkin Bread Recipe – A Thanksgiving Tradition!

pumpkin-bread-recipe

Thanksgiving week means one thing in this house – and no, it’s not Black Friday shopping. Thanksgiving time is pumpkin bread baking time! This tradition started back with my grandmother. I grew up baking the same recipe with my own mom year after year. After my mom died, my sister and I kept it going.

A few years ago I was excited to start the bake-a-thon with Lily Bean – and she was only too happy to help!

We always make a BIG batch of pumpkin bread – we give it out as holiday gifts and freeze a whole bunch. It makes the best (quick!) breakfast which we enjoy throughout the year. Plain or with cream cheese or butter on top – you can’t go wrong.

Makes: 2 large loaves or 7-8 small loaves (I usually make the small ones!)

You will need:

  • 2 Cups canned pumpkin
  • 2/3 Cup Crisco
  • 2 & 2/3 Cups Sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 Cup Water
  • 1 & 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 3 and 1/3 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Cloves
  • Non-stick cooking spray (I used the kind with flour in it.)

How to make:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  • Blend all ingredients.
  • Pour batter into bread pans greased with non-stick spray. I fill the smaller loaf pans with approximately 3/4 cup of batter – about halfway full.
  • Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes (until an inserted toothpick comes out clean). If you are making large loaves, they will need to bake for about 70 minutes.

We ended up with 6 batches worth of bread – YUM! We double wrapped the majority of the bread in aluminum foil and put it in the freezer. They will be perfect to enjoy over the long winter.

Of course, we made sure to leave plenty out of the freezer so that we can enjoy it along with our Thanksgiving feast!
