Pumpkin Bubble Bread with Cream Cheese Glaze

I am really enjoying the start of fall. Yes, it has been raining just about everyday for the last week (I do live in Washington), but I have had a fire going in my fireplace, my favorite afghan and fleece jammies have been broken out, and the smell of pumpkin has been filling my kitchen. 

I have no idea why I only cook with pumpkin in the fall. I mean canned pumpkin is available year round right? But I guess it is just that pumpkin and fall go hand in hand. It would seem a little strange to have pumpkin pie in the middle of the summer. Although far be it from me to judge. Lord knows I let my freak flag fly quite high!

Vampire Kiss Martini (Recipe Revisit)

With Halloween almost here I find myself getting more and more excited. I am seriously a big kid and love everything about it. I love to decorate the whole house and watching scary movies. When the kids were living with us it was more about coming up with foods and costumes that fit the chosen theme. A couple of years ago I made Goblin (Deviled) Eggs for our Ghouls and Goblins themed night. Everyone loved them, and they disappeared like a prom queen in a slasher movie.

I was so excited to find out that Sunday Supper was going to be working with Gallo Family Vineyards for a Halloween themed event. The participating bloggers received a bottle of Merlot, as well as their Red Moscato. They are both fabulous wines, that the whole family enjoys, but my hand down fave is their Merlot. My favorite wine with one of our family’s favorite holidays? Yes my friends, that is a good time!
