Finally Friday! September Recipes Style

It must be Fall because my allergies are killing me. My left eye is swollen shut and my throat is all scratchy, I'm heading to the doctor today to get some drops or something!! Damn Ragweed! It KILLS ME!!!!

But Fall is still my favorite season of all. The hint of chill in the air, pumpkins...ahh, I'm so excited. I know that many of you are not ready for the fall season yet but don't worry, I think I'm excited enough for all of us :D.

Today's recipe is in honor of fall! AHH this is SOOO good...I cannot live without it.

Look how nice this bread turned out! YUMMM! I make it every year!
