You cannot celebrate the Fall season without a fantastic piece of Pumpkin Bread Recipe.

This pumpkin bread Recipe is so full of flavor with all the fall spices.

I enjoy Pumpkin Bread so much.  I serve it several different ways, including as a dessert.   This Pumpkin Bread with Praline Sauce is one of my favorite fall desserts.  I use this recipe, which is very moist and full of fall spices, and I add Praline Sauce on top of it.  I also like to add sausage and maple syrup to my pumpkin bread for a delicious sweet and salty breakfast muffin.




I just love baking this bread, especially with my children.  It is the BEST Pumpkin Bread I have ever tasted.

I increased the seasonings in this recipe so that you can taste and smell the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.  The aroma of this bread baking says Fall Is Here.  Have fun this bread with your kids.

Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs

Before baking it for the first time each Fall, we read the Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs.  It is a great children’s book about the Harvest season and how farmers grow pumpkins.  It also talks about how God plants seeds and Harvests them.  If you are looking for a book to help celebrate the Fall season, try Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs.

Special Times With Your Children

Cooking with your children is a beautiful way to share exceptional times and an excellent opportunity to teach your children about God and their family.  I pray that you will spend more time cooking with your family and eating around your table.  The benefits of keeping communication open around the table are endless.

Cooking With Kids And Grandchildren

Our goal as moms is to help our children become more and more independent.  Teaching our children to cook helps teach them some independence.  It is never too late to teach our children to cook.  Your teens and adult children need that time with you no matter what age they are.
