So glad to be back here to say hello again.
This is the time of year when we plan where to spend the holidays and with whom. Is it family, friends, or a healthy dash of both? Frankly, I can barely believe Fall is stepping aside for Winter—so I can't even answer the question for myself! Speaking of family, I wanted to take a moment to show my gratitude for my newest members. The one that supports my bakery both here and in the UK—you guys, my blog fam. The amount of love and positive energy that has come from you over the years has been humbling to say the least. Thank you all so much!
honestly didn't expect much from the pumpkin brownies. They are usually too sweet, too dark and too spicy in an almost bitter way. However, these are way more than I could have imagined. Every single thing about them is amazing. I cannot wait to get my new batch! I should have ordered more than 5 packages, but I will order again next week.

The transition to Fall is often marked by the natural changing colors of the scenery. One plant classically associated with Fall is the pumpkin, a cultivar of squash native to North America. Pumpkin's distinctive orange hue is characteristic of a food high in beta-carotene, an important anti-oxidant, and beta-cryptoxanthin. These carotenoids not only have cancer fighting properties, but also boost youthful skin by preventing wrinkles. Pumpkins are also high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C. For the athletes, a cup of cooked pumpkin provides more potassium than a banana. For the weight watcher, pumpkin's high fiber content keeps one fuller on fewer calories. For everyone who enjoys treating themselves to a delightful healthy treat, pumpkin is a versatile ingredient in the kitchen that is also an excellent substitute for fat in baking. So for all you Charlie Brown doubters out there, Linus was onto something when he believed in the Great Pumpkin!
