Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread

So yesterday we went for a drive down to the Niagara Region and found this ridiculously amazing Cheesy Garlic loaf from Harvest Barn. We shared this loaf with friends at a picnic and oh my, was it ever good.

Since I got home, all I could do was think about this bread. It was that good.

I told another foodie friend of mine about this amazing bread and he sent me this recipe from Chew Town this afternoon.

I had all the ingredients on hand, so decided to give it a shot and while it wasn’t as good as the Harvest Barn loaf, it’s a very close second. Definitely recommend you give it a try.

The search for the perfect loaf continues…

Pumpkin Brownies

With the sudden change of the weather (30 last Sunday, 11 today) I felt like starting what will be one of many ‘autumn’ recipes.

What you’ll need:
2 Cups All Purpose flour
1 tablespoon Pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 1/4 cups granulated white sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon cocoa power
1 cup of canned pure (unsweetened) pumpkin pureé
1 package of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
(melted white chocolate for drizzle – totally optional)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 9×13-inch baking pan with cooking spray
2. In a bowl,  whisk together dry ingredients and set aside

3. In a mixer – cream butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in pumpkin at a medium speed (mixture may appear curdled, no worries, its supposed to look like that)

4. Fold in chocolate chips
5. Spread batter evenly in prepared baking pan.
