Featured Recipe: Pauline's Pumpkin Bread
Today’s recipe is a beautiful example of what it truly means to be thankful. My friend, Pauline Byron, is originally from Holland and grew up in South Africa. When she moved to the U.S. some 30 years ago and became a U.S. citizen, she embraced all it means to be an American. Thanksgiving is one of her favorite holidays.
But Pauline doesn’t have the extended family that a lot of us do here in the states that she can visit for the traditional celebration of the Thanksgiving meal. So she bakes Pumpkin Bread for all of her “U.S. family” to say, each and every year, just how thankful she is for them.
I’ve been the lucky recipient of her delicious efforts ever since our kids where in kindergarten together 22 years ago. Without fail, every Thanksgiving she shows up on my doorstep with a freshly baked loaf of spicy pumpkin bread and a handwritten note telling me how much she loves and treasures our friendship. Because this year, she and I won’t be living in the same city at Thanksgiving, she has shared her recipe with me. And I wanted to share it with you. Pauline’s Pumpkin Bread is truly a food to be thankful for!

What you're saying..
You two are my life-savers! One day, in a coffee-house bookstore, I discovered a strange and mesmerizing cookbook ... and I had to tell you how much I've used and appreciated your approach to cooking. Your cookbook literally changed our lives. You have probably brought more families to the dinner table at home than you can know. And for that, I and my loved ones are grateful.
