Pumpkin Spice and Cheese Bread

September 17, 2012

Last night was the first night in that it actually felt like fall. The previous two nights it was between 80-90 degrees AT NIGHT! I don’t remember the last time it was that hot.  In celebration of the changing weather I decided to make my first fall recipe 😉
