Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Deneece Gursky


As fall approaches I am getting into the holiday mood. Fall is my favorite time of year, the holiday feel, the crisp cool weather (not so much in Miami but I have memories of it from PA lol)and the way the house smells like pumpkin, cinnamon, cranberry, spices just all the amazing aromas of fall.

A friend of mine gave me this recipe years ago and its one of the favs in my family for this wonderful time of year.

Pumpkin and cranberries two amazing flavors blending together in a marriage made in heaven
