From my window, I can look out and see all the gorgeous trees that have changed into their fall colours! The outdoors really has such a fantastic way to decorate for the change of seasons. I love to sit at my dining room table with a delicious tea and treat and just enjoy the view.

For a recent treat, I decided to change up my usual banana bread recipe with pumpkin. Bringing together both into a yummy Pumpkin Banana Bread that is perfect anytime!

    I’m afraid that I don’t like banana bread nor pumpkin, so I’ll pass this on to my son who loves banana bread and bakes his own. 🙂

    Hmm, hope that I haven’t written on this already but I can’t check. This isn’t a recipe for me since I don’t like banana bread and now pumpkin’s been added and I don’t like that either. Fall is not really my time of year, too much pumpkin around. 🙂
