This time of year reminds me of comfort foods, sweet treats, and delicious baked goods. Therefore, that’s what I will be sharing this month! I will share with you some of my favorite savory fall-time dishes and also a sweet treat to go along with that.
First off, a favorite comfort soup of mine sure to hit the spot on a chilly evening….
*This makes a very large batch…I usually half mine for my family of 4 with plenty of leftovers afterwards 🙂
Vegetable Cheddar Chowder
4 qt. water
12 chicken bouillon cubes
Boil until dissolved.
3 c chopped broccoli
3 c. peeled and diced potatoes (if you like your soup thicker, use new potatoes, leave skins on)
1 c. diced carrots
Cut up vegetables small. Put in liquid and simmer until vegetables are soft. Melt 3 Cubes margarine and stir in 1 ½ cups flour. Add to vegetable mixture. Stir until smooth. It will thicken. Take 1 (16 oz) jar Cheez Whiz, put in microwave until softens a little. Add to soup.

Next up….I’m showing you some pumpkin LOVE! This is supposedly a knock-off Kneaders recipe, but never setting foot inside one myself I couldn’t tell you if this is a good copykat or not. What I will tell you is that this bread is AWESOME! So yummy and moist. I took a few to some neighbors and got only positive feedback from them as well 🙂
Copykat Kneaders Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
3-⅓ cups unbleached all purpose Flour
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

4 whole Eggs
1 pound (or 1 30oz can or 2 15oz cans) Mashed Pumpkin
⅔ cups Water
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Sift together dry ingredients and set aside. Cream sugar and butter until well incorporated. Add eggs one at a time and then add the mashed pumpkin. Alternate adding dry ingredients with water. Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour into three large greased bread pans and bake at 325 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
