Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Two of my favorite things! Brought together, they were pretty good. My motto when it comes to peanut butter however is, “MORE PEANUT BUTTER!” Seriously, I can’t get enough.

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

‘Tis the season for cranberries! An exciting time, because I freaking love cranberries. I made this bread for a post-Thanksgiving get together and forgot it in the fridge. D:

So there was some for home AND some to share with my coworkers and this recipe has received glowing reviews.

ALL THE PUMPKIN – PART 2

More pumpkin stuff! (I’ve actually been pretty lazy about trying things and I’ve definitely been lazy about baking things…)

Pumpkin Spice Cheerios – Better than regular Cheerios but just a hint of pumpkin spice. Pretty good fall cereal. (Let’s face it though, BooBerry will always be #1.)

Biggby’s Chumpkin Coffee – Oh dear pumpkin fiends, this is chai with pumpkin. Chumpkin. Doesn’t matter if it’s hot or cold, it’s goooooood.

Thomas Pumpkin Spice English Muffins – Last year, I mentioned this company’s awesome pumpkin spice bagels (which is always worth a repeat) but their english muffins with pumpkin spice are awesome too.

ALL THE PUMPKIN – PART 1

Yes, my fellow pumpkin fiends, that did require an all caps title. We’re six days into September and I’ve tried 3 pumpkin spice things, all of which were new to me. Saving best for last, let’s begin:

Meijer Pumpkin Cake Rolls

Not bad but not as amazing as I had hoped they would be. A decent enough pumpkin treat but if you limit your pumpkin intake to not burn out on it, I would skip and try one of the next two instead.

Chobani Pumpkin Harvest Crisp Flip

Every other pumpkin yogurt has failed me, but not this one. This is awesome. Pumpkin yogurt with pie crust pieces, pecans and glazed pumpkin seeds. (Glazed pumpkin seeds are my new favorite thing.) DO IT.

Voortman Pumpkin Spice Wafers

Good pumpkin gods just eat these! I love wafers anyway and this brand has not disappointed me in any of it’s flavors yet. I will not even be ashamed if I eat half the package myself.

Have you tried anything pumpkin yet this season? If so, what and what were your opinions on it?

Cinnamon Chocolate Bread

Since getting my fancy new stand mixer for Christmas, I have been absolutely lazy about baking. I’m pretty sure my husband is going to strangle me sometime soon. He spent a lot of money on the damn thing. I fully intend to use it a LOT, I’ve just been distracted by so many things. So many stupid things.

This bread was super tasty. You cannot go wrong mixing chocolate and cinnamon.

Carrot Cake Zucchini Bread

I wanted to get one more zucchini bread recipe in before zucchini went out of season. My husband was begging for this one and both the boys (my husband and his best friend/roommate) ate 1 & 1/2 loaves of this in roughly 48 hours. So I suppose that makes it a pretty damn good recipe. I did not make the icing for the top. Icing on bread is not my favorite thing. Glazes are better.
