Every year around this time I get a hankering for a good slice of Pumpkin Spice Loaf. Well, if I’m being totally honest, I get more than just “a” hankering; it’s more like a handful of hankerings – or you know two handfulls of hankerings… Okay fine I basically crave pumpkin loaf all day, everyday for the entire duration of the fall season…
It’s okay – I’m not embarrassed to admit it, because I know I am in the company of fellow pumpkin spice loaf lovers… right? I thought so. I mean, why else would you be here today if not for the promise of delicious baked goods right?
It’s Canadian Thanksgiving in a couple of days, & I’m so excited to spend the day cooking and baking delicious food with my mom, while my brothers sneak bites of food and my mom and I pretend not to notice.
It’s going to be our first Thanksgiving at my parents new house & I can’t help but be excited about this being the first of many special Thanksgiving dinners that we will spend there for years to come. My parents bought a new dining table, that is large enough for everybody to sit comfortably around – which is something of a change for our large family.
As I get older, I cherish more and more the times that the whole family can come together to enjoy a meal together & catch up on some much needed family time. So I’m really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year.
Friends! I Keep promising you that I will be keeping up with more recipe posts & I feel like I keep letting you down!
I can’t tell you all how much I love having you request recipes when I post photos to instagram & I really want to do my best to post them quickly for you, but sometimes I really just don’t know where the time goes. But it was a rainy Vancouver day today, so we had a nice cozy day at home, giving Cole & I some much needed time to catch up on some things we have been putting off.
I’m just going to take a moment here and say that if you don’t like pumpkin spice – you are probably not going to like me anymore, because it’s about to get reallllly pumpkin spicy on the blog over the next few weeks.
I’m just going to come right out and say it…. I’m a pumpkin spice addict. Seriously, all jokes aside I am actually addicted – Like when Starbucks brings the pumpkin spice latte back every September I can’t even begin to explain to you how much happiness brews in my soul… all because of a latte with some pumpkin spice. I’m not ashamed of it. 😀
And to tell you the truth, I will pretty much stop at nothing to put a pumpkin spice twist on all the baked goodies I can think of. Case in point; These Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns…. yep. This definitely happened, and it was a joyous occasion. And as if the Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns weren’t enough on their own… I topped em’ off with Maple Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting – which is nothing short of a mouthful, but also nothing short of just downright amazing.
I shared this recipe over on the Tastes of Lizzy T website & I cannot wait for you guys to try them out! So check out the post here & bake up some pumpkin spice happiness!
Happy Baking lovelies <3 <3 <3
