Breakfast & Brunch Recipes

The best recipes bring more than just a tasty bite, if we’re lucky they’ll remind us people we love and wonderful times. This Pumpkin Walnut Bread takes me back nearly nineteen years when my sorority sisters and I would gather together over great food and reminisce while our young children played. I loved those days, those women, our children, and all the incredible food. This recipe was handed down to me from my sorority sister Molly, who was then and to this day one of the most amazing cooks I’ve ever known. I was grateful she shared this recipe with me and I have loved it ever since. Enjoy.
