    Pears are very prevalent this time of year also. Pears are one of the fruits that do not ripen on the tree. They are picked when they mature, but they are still “green”. What makes this recipe for easy? Instead of measuring out flour, sugar and the like, a cake mix is used instead.

    With all of those soups you’re going to make for dinner, you need a good bread recipe. If you have a bread machine, this is the recipe to make in it. This Cheddar and Bacon Bread is good all by itself, but it is excellent with any type of soup, too. You’ll still get your protein when you serve it with a vegetable soup.

    Even though you can purchase maple syrup all year long, I just happen to think of it more during the fall with all of those lovely colored leaves. The flavor of this bread is not overpowering so it can be served with just about anything.

    This cake is one of the prettier bundt cakes I make. I believe that the cream cheese glaze is what makes this cake so special.

    World’s Best Pumpkin Bread

    I just love this recipe because it makes 2 loaves of Pumpkin Bread. Carroll Pellegrinelli

    About once a year, I take a loaf of this bread, warm from the oven, to a monthly potluck luncheon. I bring real butter along too, of course. The loaf is totally gone before we even begin our luncheon. I will tell you that is it a bit spicy. Spicy doesn’t always mean hot, which is the case with this quick bread. Spicy in this case means full of flavor. You do have the option of using pumpkin pie spice in this recipe, but don’t. You don’t want to miss on the full flavor you’ll get from the other spices.

    You’ve just got to have a least one caramel apple during the season, well maybe not. Since my daughter left for college, I don’t have anyone to go to the fair with me. My husband isn’t big on rides or fair food, and it’s no fun to go along. To get my caramel apples, I came up with this cake.
