Baking Friday!!

After dropping my son of at preschool, I went home to start baking Friday.  First, I made more peanut butter cookies because my husband complained that he didn't get any because my son and I ate them all.  To be honest, it makes a very small batch.  My husband asked how people get the fluffy cookies that keep the fork marks in the cookie.  I told him that I would have to add more flour so I did that in this batch.  Then he said that the one wasn't as good as the other ones!!  Silly husbands :) 

Then I made pumpkin bread with a recipe from my mom.  We haven't had that in awhile so I thought that it would make a nice snack and breakfast treat over the weekend.  I use the big jar of pumpkin and make three and a half loaves of bread in one bowl.  It fills way up to the top of the bowl and I have to use the wet ingredients to keep the flour from flying everywhere but it is nice because none of the pumpkin goes to waste.

I snuck a piece of the mini loaf (also known as my cheater loaf) and ate some after it came out of the oven.  There really isn't anything more fun and yummy then fresh treats out of the oven.  I hope that you enjoy and decide to make some for yourself ).  We have already eat a small loaf and a big loaf.  If you don't think that your family would eat this much, it freezes great so that you can bring it out sometime that you want something but don't have the time to make it.
