Ok so despite the weather still being in the 80’s some days, I have fully transitioned to Fall.  We are all about Fall activities, which for us includes baking and creating our own recipes.  I love when family comes over and smells pumpkin spice and declares they are not pumpkin type of people.  Naturally I ignore, and pour them a cup of coffee, which includes in-laws, my mom etc and insist they test whichever Krusteaz mix we have just baked.

Instant Swoon!  Everytime.

This past week we were tasked to create a recipe using Krusteaz, our first creation kind of looked like a kids art project and the kids weren’t even involved! Not kidding.  Your nodding your head a little I get it.  But for anyone who wants the recipe to this art project I will share it later this week and link it hear. So be sure to come back.

Well we went back to the cutting board.  Literally.  We baked up the Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Quick bread which is so delicious. Just the right amount of pumpkin but doesn’t overwhelm you, and we created a trifle.
