Today I’m sharing one of my favorite fall recipes. I love to make this pumpkin bread as a gift for friends, a yummy breakfast treat, or simply just because. You can also substitute the pumpkin for bananas or apples, or even add some chocolate chips to make it a little extra special. However you choose to make it, this simple bread recipe is sure to be one of your favorites.

Note: For banana bread, substitute 1 1/2 cups bananas for pumpkin. For apple bread, substitute 2 cups grated, cored apples and 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, & 1/4 tsp. cloves

Step 2: Beat 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla in mixer until well blended
Step 3: Mix in pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice

Welcome to All Things Anderson! My name is Kayla and I’m so glad you’re here. Pull up a chair and allow me to tell you a little about myself. To start, I am a believer and my faith in Jesus Christ means everything to me. Not a day goes by that I am not amazed by the grace and mercy God has poured out on my life. I am also married to the most wonderful, loving man on the planet. My husband is my best friend and my biggest supporter. Together, we have a beautiful newborn baby girl named Emmalyn Ruth (or Emmy Ru for short), we live in the beautiful hills of East Tennessee, and are building a life together one memory at a time.
As for my days, they are filled with lots of love, diaper changes, and snuggles as I just transitioned to life as a stay at home mom to Emmy Ru. Before having our sweet girl, I taught kindergarten for six amazing years. While I loved my job as a teacher and am thankful for the time I had to impact little hearts and minds, I wouldn’t trade this time with Emmalyn for anything. It is a big transition for sure, but I am looking forward to being with my girl for all the precious moments of her childhood that are sure to pass by quickly.
In my free time I enjoy crafting, DIY projects, entertaining, decorating, and cooking. I’ve enjoyed these things for as long as I can remember and have always wanted a platform to share my ideas with others. While I am very new to this whole blogging thing, I have big dreams for what this little slice of internet can become with a little love and creativity. So I hope you’ll join me on this journey and come back and visit real soon.
