Enjoy High School Football – Let’s start your Friday evening at a High School football game…the game, the band, the cheerleaders, the halftime show! Football is a great fall tradition and the tickets are a bargain.

Make Pumpkin Bread – Wake-up Saturday and bake my favorite Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Filling – it’s the best! The aroma will fill your home and help you declare the start of fall!

Go Leaf Peeping – If you live in a part of the country where the leaves are changing, a scenic drive and picnic would be delightful! I’m envious since leaves don’t change in South Florida, but our perfect weather returns!

Try Apple Picking It’s a fun fall activity if you live in the right part of the country! Bring home your harvest and make an apple pie!

Roast Marshmallows and Make S’More’s – Yum! Roasting marshmallows on a campfire or fire pit is a wonderful way to enjoy the first cool, crisp nights of fall. Please save one for me!

Pitch a Tent – Go camping, even if it’s in your own backyard. Imagine stargazing, telling ghost stories and roasting weenies on the fire.

Jump in the Leaves – Anyone want to jump in a giant pile of leaves? Of course, you have to do a little raking first.

Cook Your Favorite Comfort FoodsChili simmering on the stove, macaroni and cheese bubbling in the oven and anything pumpkin – those are my go to comfort recipes. What are your favorite fall comfort foods?

Decorate for Fall or Halloween – Feeling crafty? Visit Pinterest and find ideas for diy fall or Halloween decor.

    Hi! I’m a new baker and I have a doubt. Do you knead and let the dough rise after mixing all the ingredients, or just follow the recipe and it appear here?

    I want to make this recipe this week. It sounds delicious!

      Pumpkin Bread is considered a “quick bread”, so no kneading or rising is required. Good Luck!
