So you thought I was done with pumpkin after the craziness of Pumpkin Week?  Nope!  I will never be done with pumpkin recipes ☺  I just can’t quit pumpkin!

Today I combined pumpkin with one of my other favorite things…crumbs! Pumpkin bread alone is pretty amazing. But then add a crumb topping? It really doesn’t get better than that!

Oatmeal Sandwich Bread

Oatmeal Sandwich Bread | chezcateylou.com

This is my first bread post of 2014!  I might seem overly excited about this, but it is because I love bread.  It doesn’t matter how many times I bake bread, I still get excited every time it turns out well.  And this loaf of oatmeal sandwich bread turned out so well.  TheBetterHalf actually said it was his favorite loaf yet, and that really shocked me because there is a whole cup of oatmeal in here!  He is not the biggest fan of oatmeal.  But you can’t actually tell there are oats in here – they kind of dissolve and the resulting bread has a soft but sturdy texture.  It is the perfect sandwich bread!

Just look at that PB&J – doesn’t that picture make you want one?   I might need to have that for lunch today.  …

Dad’s Apple Crumb Pie

This Apple Crumb Pie is my absolute favorite apple pie recipe – straight from my Dad’s recipe collection! A true classic pie, topped with tons of crumbs!

Today is the final day of our Thanksgiving Week! Are you full yet? I hope not, because it is time for dessert! Somehow no matter how much I eat on Thanksgiving, there is always room for dessert. And of course it is Thanksgiving, so dessert has got to be pie. Unless you are TheBetterHalf – he likes chocolate chip cookies for Thanksgiving dessert, which I think is just weird. But when he has Thanksgiving with my family in Thanksgiving, I humor him and make cookies and pie.

In our family, the pie of choice is apple pie – but not just any old apple pie – an apple crumb pie! And it tastes even better, because it is made by my dad. Now I think this recipe is technically my mom’s, but my dad has been making it every Thanksgiving since I can remember, so I think it is safe to call it Dad’s apple crumb pie….

I’m back with another pumpkin recipe. I just can’t stay away! For some reason this time of year all I want to eat is pumpkin! Like these pumpkin doughnuts, or these pumpkin doughnuts, or these pumpkin muffins. I can’t believe I am about to say this, but I like it even more than chocolate right now. Pretty sure that will change in a month or so, but for now I’m embracing pumpkin everything! …

Peachberry Buckle (Peach Blueberry Coffee Cake)

IMG_5886

My absolute favorite fruit to eat in the summertime is a ripe peach (or nectarine – to me they are interchangeable!).  They are so sweet and juicy – I just can’t get enough of them.  And berries are a close second, so when I saw a recipe for a peachberry buckle on King Arthur Flour, I just knew I had to make it!  They made up a word that fuses together my two favorite fruits, how could I not try it?!  If you are wondering what the heck a buckle is, it is just a coffee cake made with fresh fruit.  This version has a very light and fluffy cake layered with sweet peaches and berries and topped with a delicious cinnamon crumb topping. It is heavenly!  The fruit keeps the cake moist and gives it an amazing flavor. You can use any kind of berry that you want.  I used blueberries in mine and it turned out really well.  The crumb topping has a splash of almond extract – you can omit this if you aren’t a fan of that flavor. This buckle / coffee cake is a perfect way to highlight summer’s delicious fruits!  …
