Pumpkin Loaf and Tea on the Deck

Since it is the season of all things Pumpkin Spice, I thought I would share one of my favourite new recipes I've tried this season.

This super moist, but not-too-sweet, Pumpkin Bread was originally from Food and Wine, however I discovered it via here.

I only substituted the almond milk for 1/6 cup cream and 1/6 cup milk.

I also had some extra cream cheese frosting in the freezer, so I thawed that and spread it on top with some toasted pecans.

The whole house smelled scrumptious and quite like Fall!

While it cooled, we put the kettle on and set up tea on the back porch. Recently we purchased four wicker arm chairs from Ikea to have a small sitting area.

We enjoyed it with a cup of Chai tea.

I can't get over how much he loves to sit and have tea with me. It's so special.

In other news, we welcomed our second nephew yesterday!

Meet Luke Richard Oblak.

He was due on Thanksgiving, but we're happy he came early.


  1. What a heart warming post, such a sweet bundle of preciousness.
    I adore the seating area, just so relaxed feeling.
    Have a happy weekend!

  2. The pumpkin loaf looks yummy and I love the wicker chairs. Baby Luke is adorable!
