Yummy Fall Pumpkin Bread

Who likes pumpkin bread or just pumpkin anything!?! Today, I'm sharing this yummy pumpkin bread recipe. This bread is so moist and delicious and makes your house smell divine! Shawn Johnson shared her mama's simple and easy recipe for this bread and I couldn't wait to make it. This recipe yields 5 small loaves but I opted to make 2 large loaves instead.


* 5 eggs
* 15 oz canned pumpkin
* 1 1/4 cup veg oil
* 2 cups flour
* 2 cups sugar
* 2 (3 oz) vanilla pudding mix (I used french vanilla)
* 1 tsp. baking soda
* 1 tsp. cinnamon
* 1/2 tsp. salt
*optional add-ins (chocolate chips, pecans, raisins)


In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add the oil and pumpkin; beat until smooth. Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and gradually beat into the pumpkin mixture. At this point you can fold in your choice of add-ins or leave them out. I decided to add some Sea Salt Caramel Chips to mine! YUMMY! Pour battle into 5 greased small loaf pans (I used 2 large loaf pans) Bake at 325 F for 50-55 minutes (I had to bake mine a little longer because of the larger loaves) Cool on a wire rack. ENJOY!!!

Let's Party with Basic Invite

Coming from a big family means having lots of birthdays to celebrate so today, I'm excited to be sharing some of Basic Invite's adorable party invitations! They offer a wide variety of party invitations online, including these adorable polka dot birthday invitations!


Basic Invite also, offers a variety of other themes as well as adult birthday invitations!

Here are just a few of the features that Basic Invite offers with their custom invitations.

Almost Unlimited Colors - Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company and is their biggest draw!

Custom Samples - Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. This is probably one of my favorite features because you can make sure you are getting exactly what you want before you place your full order! 

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes - Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Address Capturing Service - Basic Invite offers an address capturing service where customers can simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. How easy is that!?!
