Hey Everyone!! I'm Erika. I'm a 28 year old, fashion loving, food blogging, midwestern girl! I grew up on hearty meals and enjoying the simple life of South Dakota. Ever since leaving home I have found a love for baking and cooking. I started this blog for my family and friends so that they can see how food blog recipes REALLY turn out. When I'm not too busy running the fashion world and have time for the blogging world, I will try to update the blog weekly. I am not a professional and probably never will be, so don't expect too much from me. :) I just love to have fun, get messy and make the simple things. ENJOY!

Pumpkin Banana Bread

It's been a year since my last post and I have great reason why....

I became a mama to this handsome boy, Jackson! He is my heart and soul... not to mention he also takes up about 95% of my time.

But the trees are starting to change color, the nights are getting colder and lets be honest, who doesn't want to bake during the Fall? So in honor of tomorrow being the first day of Fall, here is a great recipe and twist on a couple of my favorites, banana and pumpkin bread. (I'm all about killing two birds with one stone!)

Ingredients:• 3 cups flour
• 2 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 teaspoon salt
• 2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon nutmeg
• 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• 2 tablespoon unsalted softened butter
• 2 cups light brown sugar
• 1 can pumpkin puree
• 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
• 2 egg
• 2 teaspoon vanilla
• 3 bananas

Step One:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease pans.

Step Two:
Combine all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and set aside. NOTE: DO NOT include brown sugar as a dry ingredient.

Step Three:
Finely mash bananas

Step Four:
In a mixing bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, pumpkin, eggs, vanilla and mashed bananas. 

Step Five:
Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients while mixing. 

**If you are wanting to add nuts, chocolate chips and/or berries, do so at this time. Fold into mix.**

Step Six:
Pour into two loaf pans and bake uncovered for 40 mins. Cover and bake for another 15-20 mins or until center is dry. 

Step Seven:
Serve warm with butter and ENJOY!!
