Pumpkin Bars

November 27, 2013 by braytonbb

I debated whether or not to post another pumpkin recipe, especially since this is pretty common. However, its one of my favorites and its also one that I just cannot stop eating just one either. Enjoy this Thanksgiving or anytime.

Peach Cobbler Coffee Cake

November 7, 2013 by braytonbb

This recipe I pulled off of Pinterest the other day because the title intrigued me. It is kind of a cross between a peach streusel pie and a coffee cake which I served for breakfast. I think you could get away with either one. Serve for dessert and if there are any leftovers, have it with your coffee, tea or juice in the morning. I think I will be serving this coffee cake this year for  the morning of Thanksgiving.
