Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread

A decadent pumpkin loaf is swirled with a sinful layer of cinnamon sugar and pecans, for a dessert that screams of Fall.




I love pumpkin dessert. Unfortunately I'm the only one in the house who does. So I don't bake with pumpkin as much as I'd like to. The last thing I need it to eat a whole dessert to myself, LOL. But I remembered a recipe I had seen for Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread, that sounded so good. I LOVED the Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake I made earlier this year, so decided a pumpkin version would be equally as good, if not better.

This sweet bread is fantastic! I was worried about drying it out, since it didn't want to cook in the center, but after covering it with foil (so the pecans wouldn't burn), it cooked up beautifully and was not dry at all. I love the extra pop of sweet cinnamon goodness, mixed with the earthy flavour of the pecans. Such a great pairing with pumpkin. I brought some in to work to share with the staff, so I wouldn't have to eat it all.





Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread
adapted from Creations by Kara

1 C pure pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1 C sugar
1/2 C canola oil
2 C flour
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Cinnamon Pecan Swirl
1/3 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 C chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a large loaf pan well with shortening, or spray generously with cooking spray.

In a bowl, combine 1/3 C sugar, cinnamon and chopped pecans. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the pumpkin, eggs, oil and sugar; until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour half the batter into your prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with two thirds of the cinnamon pecan mixture.

Pour remaining batter into the pan and smooth out the top. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon pecan mixture; lightly pressing pecans into the top of the loaf.

Bake for 50-60 minutes; or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cover with foil half way through baking if pecans begin to brown too much.

Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
