Today in Texas, it’s going to be 8 million degrees…so we aren’t quite breaking out our Fall boots yet.  However, I am making all of my yummy Fall breads to get us in a Fall state of mind. Today, I am sharing my recipes for Pumpkin Bread and Banana Bread.  These are simple recipes with lots of flavor.  Your family will love them for breakfast or as an after school snack! Bring it on, Fall!sliced-pumpkin-bread
