pumpkin bread with nutella

To me fall equals pumpkin ravioli and hot apple cider. I had a couple minutes to spare at the end of the day so I decided to spend it browsing foodgawker. A co-worker pointed out how delicious this recipe looked. Direct quote, "You HAVE to make this, Zon, it's making me salivate, it looks SO good. I surprisingly had all the ingredients for it so I made it a mission to make it the same night.


I had enough batter to make 3 mini loafs. I bet they would be great muffin sized too! I can't wait to taste test it tomorrow.

yum yum yum

I haven't had the time to do any sort of fun cooking (or baking for that matter) but as soon as I have time to think about what I want to cook, I am making this recipe. Is there anything better than gnocchi mac and cheese?!

oh hot water

So far, this has been the worst month out of the year for me. In the back of my mind, I keep thinking, it can't get any worse than it already is. Friday night, I did a Crewcuts roll out, crashed at 7 am and got up 11. Bummed around the house (cleaned and watched a lot of soccer) then I went out for about 2 hours shopping with a friend. I got home ready for a hot shower and bed (call me lame but it's really hard to recover working from 9pm-7am!) I stand in my shower waiting for about 5 mins waiting for the water to heat up. Thinking, hmm, it normally doesn't take that long for it to heat up, I jump back into clothes and go check out the hot water heater. No pilot fire. GREAT, one more thing to add to my awful month. 45 mins on Sunday + $350 lighter, I temporary have hot water. I still need a part to fully fix my water heater but I'm crossing my fingers that I can avoid that for at least a couple more weeks. 2 days without a shower really makes me wonder how people go a whole week camping!!
