Back with a delicious recipe :)

01 Nov

Boy, oh Boy has this semester been busy! I literally do not have time to even think about taking pictures of the food I make because I need to inhale it in 10 minutes before I have to go somewhere else! I did have time last Friday (when I should have been studying for an exam but needed a break) to make some pumpkin bread. It is absolutely DELICIOUS! I love the idea of squash or pumpkin in baked goods because it lets you go light on the fat and still have a delicious and moist product. It is also high in vitamin A and provides some fiber. If you are wondering what to do with your pumpkin, I strongly suggest you try this recipe…you will not be disappointed 🙂

As for posting for the next few weeks…they will be few and far between, but I will try to keep up with it!

◦ 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
