Holiday Spice

I like my holidays with sugar and spice and everything nice. My husband is a big fan of cinnamon so during the holidays we are loving the spice of the season at our house! Here are some of the spicy things we've enjoyed as the Christmas season was kicked into full gear at our house this week!

Pumpkin Cream Pie

Pumpkin Spice Pretzels- 
I couldn't find these for purchase online which was super disappointing! We bought them at Lowes Foods. Even the company doesn't have it listed as one of their products. I saw a few recipes that might be good as well to make them at home. 




Wonderful Winter Scents on the candle warmer.
I like these Scentsy ones best. Pumpkin roll and Hazelnut Latte. and this Better Homes and Gardens scent- Candied Apple

Banana Bread- 
I don't love my recipe or any of the ones in my cook books. Does anyone have a great one they could share?

I made these mini loaves for some wonderful people this week with a sweet little card. Are these loaf pans the cutest? They would make great neighbor gifts.

Pumpkin Bread - 
Now this recipe on the other hand is a-mah-zing. I love how when you first get it out of the oven it has a slight crisp to the edges. I could gobble this up all day and I usually do when I make it!. The recipe makes plenty to share so my neighbors love when I bake it too!
