A Pumpkin Bread that You Will Crave all Season Long

A Pumpkin Bread that You Will Crave all Season Long

It is a wind whipping 27 degrees here in Newport, Rhode Island - in November! Oh man, I am not ready to brave the cold temperatures outside so I will stay cozy right here sitting at our farm table with my hot cup of coffee and my winter blanket scarf wrapped around me while I write about this ah-mazing pumpkin bread I can’t stop eating! I know I just posted another pumpkin recipe in cookie form, but seriously while we were stationed in Italy we did not get around to too many pumpkin items and I am now catching up! But just wait, this pumpkin bread is different.  It is moist, it is dark and pumpkin pie spicy and it is topped with, drumroll please… rosemary sea salt! I know what you are thinking - rosemary sea salt on traditional pumpkin bread??? This recipe is to add a twist for those that want to throw caution to the windy day out there and make a traditional recipe ‘POP’ with sea salt and fresh fragrant rosemary. It brings out all the fall flavors! You will want to make it for your neighbors, friends, and loaves just for yourself to enjoy on cold fall weekend mornings curled up on the couch.

Sea Salt Rosemary and Lemon Shortbread

Sea Salt Rosemary and Lemon Shortbread

Hello to you on this sunny Friday afternoon. Yes, I am writing to you with a recipe for Rosemary Shortbread. Did you catch the hint that I love to bake? Oh yes, I do! My baking habits don’t do this girl’s hips any good when I have had a cast on my foot for the last 2 months! But, baked goods make me so happy and even happier when I have delivered little bundles of buttery goodness to someone and they bite into them and their smiles brighten right up! These Rosemary Shortbread nibbles did just that and friends, family and customers at the Aquidneck Grower’s Market wanted the recipe. The recipe came courtesy of the New York Times Cooking section. I loved the recipe so much that I have started a habit of an extra butter purchase while at the market. It is such an awesome dessert to bring to your next summer BBQ. Now I sound like Paula Deen! Time to lace up my sneakers! Cheers!
