the first dessert I baked for my then-fiance was red velvet cake, and he was hooked...I love to cook, and my 3 daughters are following in my footsteps. This is a collection of recipes that we love. Feel free to comment - good, bad, indifferent - if you try any, let me know how they turn out.

Pumpkin Bread

We made this in our family when I was a kid; this is a mainstay in my family and we give it as gifts as mini-loaves. One recipe makes 6 mini-loaves.

Sift together and make a well:
3 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1 /2 tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp nutmeg

Mix together and add to dry ingredients:
1 cup oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
1 can (2 cups) pumpkin

Bake at 350' - mini loaves take ~25 minutes.
