I didn’t think this day would ever come, but I am posting one of our all-time favorite recipes for the pumpkin bread we used to sell at farmers market!

I thought that someday I would take a few of our recipes and go into large scale production. But the twists and turns of life set me on a different path so now I can share this recipe with you.

At the moment the baby is sleeping so I will have to make this quick.
