After visiting so many of your blogs and seeing all the crows, I knew that I had to have some crows in my house! I visit Robin at the Robin's Nest every day. Her mother paints some beautiful things. They opened shop and I saw this crow plaque and knew it was supposed to hang in my guest bathroom. Linda at Behind My Red Door has these crow hand towels in her bath and she was kind enough to tell me where I could order them. I am so pleased with both my purchases. (It's very difficult to make a picture in this small bathroom).
I want to share a recipe for the BEST pumpkin bread. This makes 2 loaves, but I have a pan that makes mini loaves and I make it in this pan, wrap it in plastic wrap, and tie a ribbon around it for small gifts. Here's the recipe.
1 1/3 cups vegetable oil
1 16 oz. can pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda
2 3 oz. packages vanilla pudding mix (regular or instant)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional - I usually leave this out)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix oil, eggs, and pumpkin in mixing bowl and beat well Sift together flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmegs, and baking soda. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix till blended. Stir in pudding mix and nuts. Pour into greased loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour. (Makes 2 loaves) This recipe makes 16 small loaves. Baking time is shorter for the smaller loaves. I judge the time by the yummy smell coming from the oven :)
Hope you enjoy this!
