Growing up in New England, there is nothing quite like baking in the fall. My mother & grandmother used to do so much baking. My Aunt mabel made the most amazing cookies. OMG How I love making Pumpkin bread. The smell makes me feel like my mother and grandmother are back amongst the living, The scent of nutmeg, cloves & cinnamon are like a warm hug from them assuring me in spirit they are always with me. Fall is truly magical, or as I like to call it, the season of the pumpkin.
