Preheat oven to 350F and grease a loaf pan. In a bowl mix together water, oil, pumpkin and eggs. In a seperate bowl mix together sugar, flour, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for 45-50 min. Blend together crean cheese, butter and vanilla. Gradually add powdered sugar until smooth. Frost baked bread and enjoy! :)

Homemade wheat pancakes

1 large egg
1 C all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 C milk
1 Tbsp packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Beat egg in medium bowl until fluffy. Beat in remaining ingredients until smooth. ( for thinner pancakes add 1-2 Tbsp extra milk ) cook!

I made these this morning and Trenton said they were the best pancakes he's ever had. He may have been blowing smoke but he cleaned his plate!
I started this blog because my husband and I are always posting pictures of food we make on facebook and wanted to have a place to keep all those pics and recipes and be able to share with you all. Please feel free to make suggestions and post your own recipes and/or tips. Trenton knows alot about cooking and has been teaching me many things and I want to continue to learn. He can also help you if you need it. Trenton can cook just about anything whereas my specialty and love is deserts and baking.
