Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Bread

Autumn is my most favourite time of year!

I love the cooler weather and changing of the seasons, the leaves changing colour and falling to the ground. Families come together for back to school, Halloween and Thanksgiving. It is a special time of year and I wish it would last forever.

I personally start watching more TV in the Fall and cook more than I would in other months. Tasty feel good recipes like this Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Bread are really popular in my home.
