Not only had I yet to use my brand new loaf pan but I’ve also been dying to make pumpkin bread. I finally had the time last weekend and after brainstorming a variety of flavor combinations for the recipe, I came up with this one. Maple and pumpkin, a match made in heaven.

It’s always awkward timing when I think of recipes and flavor combinations. Sometimes it’s right before I fall asleep and I roll over to half-asleep Chris … Read more...

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it a little hard to get into Fall…

Homemade Vanilla Almond Milk {with a touch of maple and cinnamon}

by Chrissy

Vanilla Almond Milk_LYK11Back in the summer, we did a post on milk vs. alternative (non-dairy) milks.
