Autumn always puts me in the mood for baking and the things I like to bake best in Autumn have apples or pumpkin as their main ingredient. I recently found a pumpkin bread recipe on one of my favorite blogs. My friend Maryjane, in California, has a wonderfully creative and delicious blog called The Beehive Cottage. She featured this recipe last week and I thought I would try it. Now I made a few changes to make it my own. For instance, I added pecans and a little extra cinnamon. I also added a Streusel/Pecan topping. It turned out heavenly....thank-you Maryjane!
I found this little porcelain tea service in a local shop called "The English Lady". She features beautiful teapots, teacups and other gift items. I thought this would be the perfect addition to my guest room. If you come for a visit...I will serve you afternoon tea and homemade bread of the season.
