Pumpkin Pleasers!

    Nothing pleases a fall fan more than pumpkin goodies and I've dug out a couple of my favorites, almost forgot I had them! So treat your loved ones with a hearty breakfast of pumpkin pancakes, yummy! And for another breakfast treat as well as gifting your favorite friends, pumpkin butter. This can also be made in the crockpot if your short on time or just want to make it easy on yourself. This spread is sooo good on toast or muffins. Cozy up in the kitchen by making this autumn breakfast anytime of the day or year!
